Supreme Court rejects Trump’s effort to shield tax records from New York prosecutor.
According to Reuters, Donald Trump is no longer covered in being able to conceal details of his finances as the U.S. Supreme Court paved the way for a New York City prosecutor to obtain the former president’s tax returns and other financial records as part of a criminal investigation.
The court’s order is a win for Manhattan District Attorney Vance, who has been seeking Trump’s tax records since 2019 as part of an investigation. Vance, a Democrat, had subpoenaed the records from the Mazars accounting firm that has long done work for Trump and his businesses. Mazars has said it would comply with the subpoena, but Trump sued to block the records’ release.
In a short statement issued after the court’s decision, District Attorney Vance wrote: “The work continues.”
Vance’s office had said it would be free to enforce the subpoena and obtain the records in the event the Supreme Court declined to step in and halt the records’ turnover, but it was unclear when that might happen.
