Sensenbrenner just opened the door to obtain trumps tax returns!

His insistence that “shall” offered no “wiggle room” and obliged the party to provide info per the statute

That certainly applies to the recent attempt to obtain those tax returns!

2. There's always "wiggle room"

Clear statutory language helps of course, but the other side can still challenge whether the law applies to the president at all, whether congress had the authority to give itself that power in the first place, whether congress acted in this specific case within their powers, that the law as applied lacks due-process protections... and on and on and on.
