US SUPREME COURT ALLOWS PROSECUTOR TO OBTAIN TRUMP TAX RECORDS

The US Supreme Court has rejected Donald Trump’s efforts to block a New York prosecutor from obtaining his tax records, in a big blow to the former president as he grapples with several criminal probes.

The Supreme Court’s order on Monday clears the way for Cyrus Vance, the Manhattan district attorney, to enforce a subpoena for Trump’s tax returns, which he has long fought.

The tax records are unlikely to be made public as part of the district attorney’s investigation into Trump and the Trump Organization. That investigation has broadened since it began in 2018 in response to reports that his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, had arranged hush money payments for two women who claimed to have had extramarital affairs with Trump.
