Good morning I'm cannot vote. And I today Norman near the top priorities at this Tuesday number one the fight over president from tax returns Treasury Secretary Steve minutia of refusing that a man by house Democrats to turn over the president's tactics. But exercise at the request lacks a legitimate legislative purpose. But Democrats argued that the law is clear the standoff could trigger a legal fight that may go all the way to the Supreme Court. Number two a presidential pardon the president has partner former soldier convicted of killing it al-Qaeda suspect on Iraq Michael cannot. Initially sentenced to twenty partners in prison with parole and when he fourteenth the suspect was stripped naked and shots. And then insisted it was self. On to number three a new clue on what may have contributed to the airline disaster. Our way in Moscow month Russian news media is quoting the pilots saying the plane was landing when accessed wait. Because the crew fails to dumping fuel before the emergency landing. Which is common procedure for flights landings so soon after take off. 41 people were killed including a recent college brat. Omnimax. Investigators reportedly believe pilot error was the likely cause of the disaster and emergency response for the airport is also being closely examined. Number four now the controversial and to Saturday's Kentucky Derby now appears headed to court Kentucky racing officials have denied a request to overturn maximum securities Dequan. Disqualification. The horses co owner. Now plans to soon. And probably number five you back often call the Oscars of fashion that Mac Dallas did not disappoint this year. This year's theme was going keep escalating got got made. Quite an entrance to the general fund raiser she changed a fork times I'm looking carpet eats look. More KF. Then that. And previous. Accessorized with it dancing men umbrellas that dazzle cell phones am yeah. You can't really of the show Billy Porter Sherrod I've been I've gold ensemble by the blondes channeling. Elizabeth Taylor.

And a Grammy Award winner Casey must grades went full on Barbie in a platinum way hot pink leather jacket. Combo Jack out combo nicely with Kate in the low hurts. So much more to talk about today starting ran me not. Including that new baby I'll go and American we've. America. Good morning everyone killer title of the met gala later on yeah. Have this out about this show it's going to be we have more fashions for you all the craziness. You were eating on the red carpet. No hot actress or stay with we're gonna get that big story the drug administration push back against Democrats in congress. I'm multiple fronts a let's bring in ABC news is Trevor also in Washington to break at all down Trevor good morning think you. For joining us let's start with the Treasury Secretary Seidman agent. He's denied house democrats' request for six years of the president's tax returns. What reason is he giving to this. Well he's not giving it to many specifics Canadians it's going to be both with you and Kenneth what we do know was that the Democrats requested those six years of president's tax returns. Under a provision in the tax. Tax go to goes back to 1924 they can submit a written request of the Treasury Secretary and that they are expected to turn it over but C diminution released a letter to the house Ways and Means Committee yesterday. He says that he doesn't believe there is legitimate legislative purpose for the request from the House of Representatives has he talked it over with Justice Department he doesn't believe it will be lawful to turn over the president's tax returns and says a post serious. Kate constitutional question so at this point he is not planning on turning them over and now. We're looking at a likely legal bat. A live report and we knew that legal battle was coming we didn't think BI White House and or higher restaurants and say hate. Here the tax active turn right on over there we knew this battle and so it could go pretty far I'm Trevor also there's a fight we know between the executive legislative legislative branches. When it comes to AG attorney general William Barr who has refused to comply with the house subpoena for the 400 active Muller reports so he is facing. Contempt. Citation from congress. Yeah I it is it's a definitely a possibility what's happening today is a meeting to may be possibly avoid that the contempt. Is because attorney general Barr has ignored a subpoena from. The house judiciary committee to turn over the full un redacted Muller reports. Today they are having a meeting to negotiate maybe they can reduce a less redacted Moeller report that's the Justice Department. And the Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler so they're gonna try to figure that out but of course moving forward. There is a scheduled vote on Wednesday if we don't make any progress where they very well could it. Find our attorney general bar in content. OK and Trevor all this stems from the Muller report one of the big questions at this point is will each year. Firm Robert Mueller himself will he testify in front of congress we know that Democrats would certainly like to hear that. May fifteenth has been set as a preliminary date oh what do you eat what he knows apart. Well the wheels are moving for sure that may fifteenth preliminary for sure there's still some. Decisions to be made but the talks are still ongoing the Democrats especially when he hear from Robert Mueller we know that the president has changed his mind originally he said it's up to the attorney general whether Robert Larkin testifying now he's saying. Robert Mueller should not testify but we have learned from sources close to the attorney general that he hasn't changed his mind he's testified he says that Robert Mueller has the right to sit for a hearing he still believes that and also another interesting wrinkle is some Republicans. Are disagreeing with the president but in support of him kind they're saying work that they and they want to and they know that president trump says Robert motion testify some Republicans are saying. I want him to testify because I want to grill and repair represented Tom McClintock from. California said he wants to ask Robert Mueller about its conduct during the investigation he feels that Robert Moeller undermined the president so. He's disagreeing with how the president feels about testimony but he definitely is supporting him with the questions he wants to ask. Again we'll have to see it may fifteenth is the hard date but the wheels are motion to get Robert Lawler in front of a committee. Cover your fabulous. Depth thank you are associated they see all the updates just as Michael Collins going to jail yet yes a lot there's a lot happening in Washington there is and you did a great job we'll sort it all out force we appreciate you my friend thank you. And more than 6000. Navy personnel are heading to the Persian gulf this morning putting US firepower on Iran's doorstep. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo calls the move appropriate after US.

ABC's Martha Raddatz says the method of potential Ronnie an attack remains unclear. There have been no specifics revealed about this potential attack. But they shell of four certainly sends a strong warning to Iran that if they do attack. They will face what the White House is calling an un relenting response. I think some Martha they aired tomorrow marks one a year since the US pulled out.
