Supreme Court Says Trump Not 'Immune' From Records Release, But Hedges on House Case

 


In a pair of historic rulings on Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected President Trump's claim of absolute immunity under the law. The vote was 7 to 2 in cases involving grand jury and congressional subpoenas for Trump's pre-presidential financial records.

The court handed Trump a big loss, ruling that he is not "categorically immune" from having his pre-presidential financial records released to a New York grand jury. But in a second decision on the House's request for similar information, the court appeared to question the breadth of congressional authority.

Both cases were sent back to lower courts, and above all, Americans will not see the president's taxes before Election Day.
