Supreme Court enables House democrats to obtain
Donald Trump's income tax return
The Supreme Court cleared the way for a House committee to obtain several years of Donald Trump’s tax returns from the IRS.
This is a significant win for lawmakers that brought a three-year court battle to an end.
The court’s move is a major loss for Trump, who has sought to shield the release of his tax returns for years.
There were no noted dissents.
The panel has been seeking Trump’s records since 2019.
Trump argued that the committee’s requests were a pretense for improper use to gain a political advantage.
Technically, the Supreme Court’s ruling is a temporary one, rejecting an emergency request Trump filed in October.
A Treasury spokesman said that the Treasury Department will comply with the Court of Appeals’ decision, but gave no timeline.
Former President Donald Trump has a net worth of $2 billion in 2022.
