Court Rejects Trump’s Broad Claims, but Records Stay Private
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has rejected President Donald Trump’s complaints that he’s being harassed and ruled in favor of a New York prosecutor’s demands for the billionaire president’s tax records.
But in good political news for Trump, his taxes and other financial records that he has fought hard to keep private almost certainly will be kept out of the public eye at least until after the November election.
In a separate case Thursday, the justices kept a hold on banking and other documents about Trump, family members and his businesses that Congress has been seeking for more than a year. The court said that while Congress has significant power to demand the president’s personal information, it is not limitless.
