This was expected. The Supreme Court has issued a temporarily pause on the release of Donald Trump’s tax returns. The court’s statement reads, in part:
It is ordered that the mandate of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, case No. 19-5142, hereby stayed pending receipt of response, due on or before Thursday.
The lower court order compelling Trump’s longtime accounting firm Mazars USA to turn over the president’s financial records will be delayed until the Supreme Court decides whether to take up Trump’s appeal. Trump has requested that the Supreme Court protect his financial records from both House investigators and the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which is conducting a criminal investigation.
