The Supreme Court on Monday declined to step in to halt the release of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns from Manhattan prosecutors who are probing the Trump Organization.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance is investigating alleged insurance and bank fraud by Trump’s real estate company and has subpoenaed eight years’ worth of financial records from Trump’s accounting firm Mazars USA LLP.
Trump’s tax records are not supposed to become public as part of prosecutors’ investigation
In a statement responding to the Supreme Court’s decision, Vance’s office said, “The work continues.”
Trump has called Vance’s probe the “continuation of the worst witch hunt in American history.”
The Supreme Court did not offer an explanation for its decision.
Vance had been seeking the tax returns and other financial information since 2019, but Trump’s legal team argued that he could not be investigated because he was a sitting president at the time.
The high court ruled against him last summer and
