WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court is handing President Trump a mixed verdict on releasing his tax returns and financial records.
In a 7-2 ruling, the high court ruled that investigators in New York can seek Trump’s records. Justices said the President is not above the law and is not immune to investigations by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
Meantime, the high court kicked a related case back to lower courts. The case involved House demands for access to Trump’s records. Justices said lower courts need to give more consideration to “significant separation of powers concerns” involved in congressional subpoenas for the President’s tax and financial records. That was also a 7-2 ruling.
