Trump Fighting to Keep his Secrets-Taxes

The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday gave President Donald Trump an opportunity to keep off House Democrats’ efforts to get his financial records but ruled he’s not immune from Manhattan district attorney’s attempt to get his taxes.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office attempted to retrieve Trump’s tax returns as an evidence of its probe into hush-money payments to 2 women although the president can challenge that in court and the justices said he can fight House Democrats’ plan to obtain financial records from the Trump Organization’s firm and two banks.

The rulings represent a mixed bag for the president; both matters will go back to lower courts, meaning it is unlikely anything would be decided before Election Day in November.

Trump called the efforts to gain his financial informationa political prosecution” in a tweet after the rulings.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, meanwhile, called the decision “a tremendous victory for our nation’s system of justice and its founding principle that no one – not even a president – is above the law.”

“Our investigation, which the lawsuit has delayed for over a year, will resume, guided as always by the grand jury’s solemn obligation to follow the law and therefore the facts, wherever they’ll lead,” Vance said during a statement.
