Supreme Court Rules Trump Is Not Above the Law, But Public Unlikely to See Tax Returns by Election

In a pair of 7-2 rulings, the Supreme Court rejected President Trump’s claim of absolute immunity under the law.

The court ruled a Manhattan grand jury could have access to the president’s tax returns, but it remains unlikely any of Trump’s tax records will be seen before the election.

“Legally, Trump had a big loss,” says investigative reporter David Cay Johnston, founder and editor of DCReport.org. “Politically, he got a big win out of this court.”
