Congressional subpoenas of trump's taxes

have been successfully rebuffed to date. I'd bet a subpoena of the NYT would not be rebuffed or refused for the returns they have?

1. The Times would fight tooth and nail against a subpoena

It's a matter of principle among journalists.

2. They've said they need to protect their source.

3. Might not even be returns. They said "tax records"

4. They can protect their sources

and still work with Congress. Sources must have considered the returns being subpoenaed, took me 10 seconds to imagine it with Adam Schiff leading the charge.
