Court rules 7-2 that prosecutors CAN subpoena his returns and he is NOT above
the law - but nobody is likely to see them any time soon
Donald Trump rage tweeted 'NOT FAIR!' Thursday as the Supreme Court ruled 7-2
that he cannot claim immunity to stop his tax returns being obtained by
prosecutors - while his lawyer vowed to fight to keep them secret from New
York's district attorney Cy Vance.
The justices dealt a stunning blow Trump by ruling that he cannot claim immunity
from all investigation to stop his bank and his accountants from handing over
the tax returns that Vance had demanded as part of his probe into possible hush
money to Stormy Daniels. The court ruled 7-2 that Trump is not immune as
president from subpoenas, in an opinion that tested both the power of local
prosecutors and Congress to obtain information.
