A guide to public records and the Trump Presidential Transition

Previously, we took a look at what you could FOIA about Donald Trump and what you couldn’t. While at the time he had a relatively light public records trail, savvy requesters could still find ways to get a lot of material.

In fact, after that story ran, the New York Times had a great piece that used public records to raise serious questions about Donald Trump’s claimed income.

Now that Donald Trump is President Elect of the United States, a whole new world of FOIA possibilities begins to open up. But first, some bad news.

Now that Donald Trump is a federal employee, can we FOIA his tax returns from the IRS?

Yes, there are a lot of documents you can get regarding government employees through the Freedom of Information Act. But, barring a massive reinterpretation of existing laws, their federal tax returns are not one of those documents.
