     Activists are turning up the pressure on Massachusetts Democratic Congressman Richard Neal to use his position as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee to request President Trump’s returns.

   A national campaign seeking Trump’s impeachment is running a 30-second TV ad in Springfield for the next two weeks.

    "It's time to hold Donald Trump accountable and we can do our part here in Massachusetts. All we need is our congressman Richard Neal to be with us," the ad says.

    The ad asks people to call a phone number to let Neal know they want the president to be impeached.

   The billionaire founder of the “Need to Impeach” campaign, Tom Steyer, is scheduled to hold a town hall in Springfield on Feb. 12th.

   Neal has said he’s methodically building a legal case for eventually requesting Trumps tax returns.
