The judges rejected Trump’s request to postpone the application of the court decision made on October 7, according to which the accounting company Mazars USA is ordered to hand over materials and data to a grand jury convened by District Prosecutor Cyrus Wenz, a district prosecutor from Manhattan, from the ranks of the Democratic Party.
It took the Supreme Court several months to rule on the case. The institution, which consists of three judges appointed by the former president, was not announced during the election process and the period in which Trump filed objections to the defeat.
It did so a month after the former president’s term ended.
The case refers to Trump’s tax records as a private person and a businessman in the last eight years. In this regard – prosecutors did not disclose too much information.
In one court file during the past year, they stated that they rightly request access to the records due to, as they specified, reports in the public about possible significant and long-lasting criminal behavior in Trump’s organization.
Part of the investigation relates to payments to actress in the adult industry Stormy Daniels and model Karen McDougall for not revealing details of alleged scandals with Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Trump denied that he had extramarital affairs with them.
In July 2020, Supreme Court judges rejected Trump’s argument that the president is immune to an investigation while in office or that the prosecutor needs to show a greater degree of need to disclose the head of state’s tax records.
That decision was supported by Neil Gorsach and Brett Cavanaugh, who were Trump’s choice for judges of the Supreme Court. The decision was made and announced before Amy Connie Barrett, the former president’s third choice, succeeded Ruth Bader Ginzberg as a judge.
Trump’s lawyers resorted to additional arguments explaining why Donald Trump’s tax data should not be disclosed – but they were rejected before the federal court in New York in a regular procedure and after an appeal.
These are verdicts whose entry into force the former president of the USA tried to postpone.
