NBC News reported that the United States Supreme Court on Monday declined to take part in a request that sought to prevent a New York jury from having access to the tax information, both corporate and personal, of the former president Donald Trump.
This decision ends a long battle in which the ex-president’s legal team has tried to keep the investigators of the case away from the financial data of the real estate mogul, in an investigation that seeks to establish whether irregular payments were made during his electoral campaign and that he had already managed to defer the delivery of documents once.
Still, the ruling does not mean that these records will be made public anytime soon since according to New York state law, the information a jury receives is confidential.
But in this new scenario, District Attorney Cyrus Vance will be able to request the documents that the former president did not want to deliver to the other prosecutors or to Congress.
