WASHINGTON - A confidential Internal Revenue Service legal memo says tax returns must be given to Congress unless the president takes the rare step of asserting executive privilege, according to a copy of the memo obtained by the Washington Post.

The memo contradicts the Trump administration's justification for denying lawmakers' request for President Donald Trump's tax returns, exposing fissures in the executive branch.
