Supreme Court Republicans have already gotten what they needed out of Trump, so no need to stick their necks out further:
The Supreme Court on Monday rejected former president Donald Trump’s last-chance effort to keep his private financial records from the Manhattan district attorney, ending a long and drawn-out legal battle.
After a four-month delay, the court denied Trump’s motion in a one-sentence order with no recorded dissents.
District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. has won every stage of the legal fight — including the first round at the Supreme Court — but has yet to receive the records he says are necessary for a grand jury investigation into whether the president’s companies violated state law.
Vance responded to the court decision with a three-word tweet: “The work continues.”
At this point, it’s also more important that the Manhattan DA have access to Trump’s tax records than the public having access to them.
