Congressman Bill Pascrell (D-Dist.9) — with offices in Englewood, Lyndhurst, Passaic and Paterson — said a 1924 law could be used to examine President Donald Trump’s tax returns, USA Today reports .

The rarely used law gives Congressional committees that create tax policy the power to see and study tax returns.

Pascrell, a native son of Paterson who serves on the Ways and Means Committee, has asked its chairman, Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas, to order the Treasury Department to provide the returns directly to the committee, according to the news report.

On his Facebook page, Pascrell has posted a meme that reads :

Presidential conflicts?

Debts to foreign governments?

Emolument violations?

Congress can request.

Pascrell wants to see 10 years of returns, according to USA Today. After they are examined, the committee could opt to share them with the full House of Representatives.

That move would, essentially, make them public.
