A report by Fox Business says the Supreme Court is shielding President Donald Trump’s financial records from House Democrats. They announced that Trump’s accounting firm does not have to hand over his tax returns sought by House Democrats for now. This allows the justices to “decide how to handle the House subpoena and a similar demand from the Manhattan district attorney at the same time.” This also probably means that Democrats will not have the records before an anticipated vote on impeachment.
Trump is given until December 5th to file a full appeal with the court. “Should the court agree to hear the case, the injunction will stay in place preventing House Democrats from getting their hands on the documents for their impeachment probe. But if the court declines to hear the president’s challenge, the injunction would expire and the documents would be turned over,” reports The Washington Times.
