The high court ruled 7-2 in favor of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, who is conducting a criminal investigation into the president's business dealings and hush-money payments made to two women who allegedly had affairs with the president years before he was elected. Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissented.
But SCOTUS blocked Congress from getting Trump financial records. The House subpoenas for President Trump’s financial documents will remain blocked the Supreme Court said, sending a controversial case back down to the lower court for further review.
This process will begin again. The district court will get briefings. They may hear evidence. That will be appealed to the second circuit court of appeals and then the losing party can go back to the Supreme Court. All of this will take a while, so it will be awhile before prosecutors get these documents. Furthermore, as we are in July and the election takes place in November, it seems unlikely that the actual documents will be turned over to the grand jury before November.
