Supreme Court delays release of Trump tax returns

The U.S. Supreme Court has delayed the release of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns for four months after an emergency filing related to a Manhattan grand jury subpoena of the returns. The delay prompted speculation about divisions in the Court and the need to dispel any appearance of partisan politics. The Roberts court is on the record stating that not even a president is exempt from producing evidence in a criminal proceeding. (CNN, February 18, 2021, by Joan Biskupic)

Trump’s lawyers are planning to file a petition in March asking the Court to hear oral arguments on the issue that could further delay any release of the tax returns. (New York Daily News, February 18, 2021, by Molly Crane-Newman)
