Supreme Court Rules on Release of Trump Tax Returns

For all four years of his presidency Donald Trump has fought tooth and nail against releasing his tax returns. 

Now the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled Trump must produce his taxes for an ongoing criminal case...

From CNN
The Supreme Court cleared the way for a New York prosecutor to obtain former President Donald Trump's tax returns, dealing a massive loss to Trump who has fiercely fought to shield his financial papers from prosecutors.
The documents will be subject to grand jury secrecy rules that restrict their public release.
The ruling is a bitter loss for Trump, even if the tax records are shielded from public disclosure, after he consistently argued that the subpoena issued by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance was overbroad and issued in bad faith.
