The Supreme Court ruled that Trump can’t hide his tax returns and ignore subpoenas from the Manhatten DA:

The second 7-2 decision laid out a roadmap for how Congress can request and obtain presidential records. The rulings mean that the public probably won’t see Trump’s financial records and tax returns before the election, but the highest court in the land has rejected Trump’s claim that he has special immunity and is above the law on subpoenas.
