Bad news came from the Supreme Court for Trump, whose term ended on January 20 and was later cleared by the Senate in his impeachment trial.
Announcing its verdict on the file in front of him since October, the Supreme Court ruled that Trump’s retrospective tax records can be accessed within the scope of the investigation carried out by the Federal District Court of New York. It was reported that the court did not have any comments or comments regarding the decision.
American media reported that this decision of the Supreme Court was a “victory” for Democrat Cyrus Vance, District State Attorney, who led the grand jury to handle the case in New York.
In October, Trump applied to the Supreme Court to suspend the execution of the New York Court of Appeals ruling, which decided to hand over tax records to the prosecutor’s office.
The court postponed its decision for a while waiting for the new Supreme Court judge to take office.
TRUMP’S TAX RECORDS CASE
In the US, the Federal Court of New York asked the former President Trump to declare his 8-year tax returns as part of his investigation into allegations of bribery in the 2016 elections in the lawsuit filed in 2019.
Trump’s lawyers brought the matter to the Supreme Court, claiming that state courts could not file criminal proceedings and seek tax records against a person “currently serving as president.” The court, which rejected the application last July, stated that Trump’s lawyers would consider other objections separately.
Trump’s lawyers’ applications that tax records should be closed to access were rejected in October by the district court and the Court of Appeals in New York. Trump also took the matter to the Supreme Court in the same days.
