Every court has ruled that the US House and the Manhattan NY District attorneys office CAN receive copies of Donald Trump’s tax info….
Trump and his lawyer’s have pushed this up to nation’s high court…
We’ll see if the court entertains this….
Or turns it down which means the lower courts direction stands and the info goes to the House in this case and probably the DA in Manhattan gets tax info also….
The House Oversight Committee told the Supreme Court on Monday that it would not oppose President Trump‘s request for an administrative stay of an appeals court ruling granting House Democrats access to his financial records.
The panel said in a letter to the high court that it would not oppose a 10-day administrative stay while the justices decide whether to take up Trump’s appeal. The committee also said it would file a response to Trump’s motion by Friday.
Trump’s lawyers had asked the Supreme Court last week to hear their case after the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the House committee could subpoena the president’s accounting firm for eight years of financial records.
Trump’s legal team had filed for an emergency stay because the appellate court’s ruling was set to go into effect on Wednesday…
The Supreme Court on Monday issued an administrative stay blocking House Democrats’ subpoena for President Trump’s tax returns until both sides can file the necessary legal papers.
Why it matters: The lower court order compelling Trump’s longtime accounting firm Mazars USA to turn over the president’s financial records will be delayed until the Supreme Court decides whether to take up Trump’s appeal. Trump has requested that the Supreme Court protect his financial records from both House investigators and the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which is conducting a criminal investigation.
