The Supreme Court in a 7-2 decision on Thursday said New York prosecutors can subpoena eight years of President Trump's personal and business tax records. Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch concurred with the majority in ruling against Trump in his attempt to block a subpoena of his accounting firm. "The president is neither absolutely immune from state criminal subpoenas seeking his private papers nor entitled to a heightened standard of need," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote. The court, however, in another 7-2 decision prevented Congress from accessing Trump's financial records for now, rejecting Trump's claims of immunity but sending the case back to lower courts for additional review.
