Supreme Court upholds NY prosecutors’ access to Trump’s tax returns, rebuffs Congress

The Supreme Court in a split decision on Thursday sided with New York state prosecutors seeking President Trump’s tax returns, even as it shielded a trove of his financial records from Congress. The justices upheld a Manhattan district attorney subpoena for eight years of Trump’s financial documents, including his personal and corporate tax returns. But they declined to grant Congress access to records subpoenaed by a trio of Democratic-led House committees.  Both cases were decided by a 7-2 vote.ADVERTISEMENT The ruling in the New York dispute makes it more likely that Trump's tax returns are eventually made public, though it’s unclear if they would be disclosed before the November general election. More fundamentally, the decision fl...

Tulsa coronavirus spike after Trump rally ‘likely’ linked: official

Donald Trump's controversial rally and other mass events in Tulsa last month "more than likely" contributed to a local surge in coronavirus cases, health authorities in the southern US state of Oklahoma said Wednesday. Tulsa County has seen record daily new COVID-19 cases this week, including 266 on Wednesday, after having witnessed a decline over the previous two weeks. Pressed on whether this explosion in new infections was due to Trump's June 20 meeting, Tulsa health department director Bruce Dart said it was "more than likely" that "significant events in the past few weeks" had contributed. Several thousand supporters of the US president defied the pandemic to attend the fiery rally last month, which was hyped as a major campaign relaunch ahead of the November election. Al...
