Supreme Court to hear three cases seeking access to Trump's financial and tax records

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear three separate court cases involving demands for access to President Donald Trump's financial and tax records, putting the justices in the position of making high-profile decisions on unlocking some of Trump's closely-held secrets in the middle of the 2020 presidential campaign. The high court announced Friday afternoon that it will hear arguments in March on two cases involving House committees' demands for Trump-related records in the hands of his banks and accountants, as well as a third case in which a Manhattan prosecutor is using a grand jury subpoena to demand similar records. During the 2016 campaign, Trump promised to release his tax returns, but he later reversed course, citing ongoing audits. He has since vigorously fought efforts to obtain his returns. The justices are likely to rule on the cases by June.
