The Supreme Court declined Monday to intervene in the attempt, by a Democratic New York State prosecutor, to secure former Republican President Trump’s tax records.
As part of an investigation, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has been seeking 8 years of Trump’s tax records since 2019. Vance has not specifically disclosed why he needs the records — nonetheless, he subpoenaed the records from Trump’s accounting firm. The accounting firm said it would comply with the subpoena, but then President Trump sued to block the release of the tax records.
Vance’s office had he would be free to enforce the subpoena and obtain the tax records if the Supreme Court declined to prevent the turnover of the records — and, indeed, today we have learned that the Supreme Court has decided not to intervene.
Vance issued a statement in response to the news, “The work continues.”
