The Supreme Court will hear arguments in March over whether President Trump must turn over his financial records in several different investigations at the state and federal level. The president and his legal team have been trying to shield his financial records from investigators in New York and Congress.
A lower court had decided, but that decision will be stayed until the Supreme Court reaches a decision. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. is attempting to enforce a grand jury subpoena for the president to turn over eight years of tax returns from the president’s accounting firm, and congressional committees are attempting to obtain a broad range of the president’s past financial records.
The president’s legal team has argued that the president has broad authority to exert privilege over his records.
Any decision by the Supreme Court is likely to come in the heat of the 2020 presidential campaign and well after a Senate trial to determine whether he stays in office.
