President Donald Trump’s lawyers are pushing back against the idea of releasing his tax returns.

In a letter to the U.S. Treasury Department on Friday, a team of the president’s lawyers argued that requests for the release of his tax information “are not consistent with governing law.”

“We are confident that this misguided attempt to politicize the administration of the tax laws will not succeed,” they wrote in the letter, which was signed by William Consovoy, Trump’s personal attorney.

Friday’s letter suggests the president will fight hard to keep his tax information private. In the letter, Consovoy argues that Congress is attempting to violate Trump’s First Amendment rights.
