Update: The hearing is now adjourned. Republicans suddenly discovered Americans' right to privacy, at least when it comes to Donald Trump's tax returns. They're not quite as strong when it comes to women and their lady parts. The video should be available as an archive shortly, which will replace the live stream.

The House Ways and Means Oversight subcommittee is holding a potentially explosive hearing on the tax returns of President Trump and VP Pence. Donald Trump was the first major-party presidential candidate to not disclose his taxes in over 40 years, despite saying he would do so. Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA), House Ways & Means chair, has the power to review any individual’s tax returns.

Republicans are not happy about this. Watch the flames fly live with us.
