The DOJ have said it would be illegal for the IRS to comply with the demand for the tax returns, and there's Supreme Court rulings that Congress should not investigate allegations of criminality, and should only use their investigative powers for legislative purposes.

So why is OK for congress to disobey the law? Because you don't like Trump? If you actually believe that, you're as bad as him.
