Trump to turn tax returns over

Speaking of long-fought battles, former US President Donald Trump has lost a(nother) case in the Supreme Court… He will be instructed to provide detailed information about his finances to a grand jury investigation into alleged hush-money payments and other issues in New York. The tax returns and other documents from 2011-19 will be subject to secrecy rules and won’t be publicly released, but that hasn’t soothed Team Trump which says the request is “overboard”. This all relates to the Trump Organisation’s employment of lawyer Michael Cohen and claims that he paid off two women who said they’d had affairs with the former president. Trump has long denied the claims. He was the first president since 1976 to refuse to release his tax returns to the public.
