Supreme Court Rules Against Trump On Tax Records, New York Prosecutor Gets Them

After months of delay, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to stop the turnover of President Donald Trump’s tax records to Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, reports The Associated Press.

NBC correspondent Pete Williams told MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle that the New York grand jury would be able to see Trump’s financial records “almost immediately”:

This is the end of the road for the [former] president’s lawyers to appeal here. The accountants for the president have always said they will abide by whatever the courts say. And this has all be set to go — sort of in the starting blocks.

Vance agreed to hold off on any demands for these documents until the Supreme Court has handled this case. You can bet that that is already to go. All they have to do is turn the key. Those demands will go to the accountants. The accountants are ready to turn it over. So I suspect that this will be a matter of days.

The topics they’re looking at seems to growing as well. We know that it’s expanded beyond the statements — remember the genesis of all this. It was Michael Cohen’s testimony before the Senate that the president wasn’t truthful in stating his assets, that sometimes he would overstate them when he was trying to get loans and sometimes he would understate them when he was trying to avoid taxes.

And then the hush money payments. But it’s gone beyond that. It’s gone beyond those payments. It’s gone beyond that treatment. It’s looking at a much broader look at the Trump Organization.
