SCOTUS Allows Release Of Trump Tax Returns To Prosecutor
SUPREME COURT ALLOWS RELEASE OF TRUMP TAX RETURNS TO NEW YORK PROSECUTOR
(CNN) – A big legal loss for former president Donald Trump.
New York prosecutors now have access to his tax returns.
A Supreme Court’s ruling on Monday cleared the way for the Manhattan District Attorney to get the tax documents.
Trump’s lawyers have been fighting to shield his financial papers from prosecutors.
Prosecutors have argued that they need the returns for their grand jury investigation into hush money payments and other issues.
Grand jury secrecy rules will still keep the documents from becoming public.
Trump’s lawyers can appeal the case, but his accounting firm will have released the documents by then.
