SCOTUS clears way for US House committee to get disgraced former president’s tax returns

Source: Axios

“The Supreme Court on Tuesday denied former President Trump’s emergency application asking it to block a Democratic-led House committee from obtaining his tax returns. The denial allows Trump’s tax returns to be released to the House Ways and Means Committee, which has been attempting for years to obtain them from the Internal Revenue Service as part of its investigation into the service’s presidential audit program. Tuesday’s order, which was unsigned and included no dissent, vacates a temporary hold Chief Justice John Roberts placed on the documents earlier this month.” (11/22/22)
