Dhe former US President Donald Trump is increasingly troubled in the dispute over his tax documents. © www.de24.news The  US Supreme Court on Monday rejected Trump’s request to prevent the New York prosecutor from disclosing his tax documents. For Trump, the decision is a heavy defeat in a long-running legal battle that had already reached the Supreme Court in the summer.

© www.de24.news The  Supreme Court had denied Trump, who was still in office at the time, “absolute immunity” in the dispute in July and granted the district attorney in Manhattan the right to inspect Trump’s financial records. © www.de24.news The  dispute then went back to lower instances and dragged on there.

Trump has long tried to prevent his accounting firm Mazars and the credit institutions Deutsche Bank and Capitol One from releasing his financial and tax records. Critics therefore speculate that he has something to hide. © www.de24.news The  United States has a long history of issuing financial and tax records to high officials. Trump has always refused to do this.
