U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he is not opposed to proposed New York state legislation which would allow the state tax commissioner to release NY tax returns to congressional investigators.

The bill, though broadly applicable to anybody who files taxes in New York, is seen as an attempt to allow Congress to see President Donald Trump’s financials. Schumer said Trump should have released his tax returns on his own.

“I think every major figure should make their tax returns public,” he said. “I’ve made mine public for years and that makes sense. So I would hope that the president would give those taxes. I would hope the courts would say he’d have to but New York’s pursuing another route and that’s fine with me.”

Trump has refused to release his tax information dating back to his 2016 candidacy. He has pointed to a federal audit, as the reason for his unwillingness to make the returns public, but also tweeted Saturday he won the 2016 election “partially based on no Tax Returns.”

“When you’re a public official, you’re not just a private citizen and you want to see what the taxes are to see if there are conflicts of interests or anything else for everybody, not just one person,” Schumer said.

Last week, the New York Times reported it had obtained tax forms from 1985 to 1994 showing Trump lost more than $1 billion over the decade and was able to avoid paying income tax for eight of ten years as a result.
