US Supreme Court rules prosecutors can see Trump’s tax records

Washington Correspondent

The US Supreme Court has ruled that a New York prosecutor can press ahead with a subpoena to seek President Trump’s personal financial records as part of an investigation into hush money payments, declaring that “no citizen, not even the President…is above the common duty to produce evidence.”

But in a separate ruling, the Justices blocked Congress from seeing many of the same records – at least for now.
