The United States Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the Manhattan district attorney can obtain President Donald Trump’s tax records and that Congress can not have access to his financial records for now.
Court observers thought the justices might combine the two cases, they have not, ruling in favour of release in one case and sending the second, involving US Congressional requests, back to a lower court.
The court upheld a New York prosecutor’s demand for Trump’s tax returns as part of a criminal investigation that includes hush-money payments to women who claim they had affairs with Trump.
