SCOTUS Blocks Transfer of Trump Tax Documents, Rules Lindsey Graham Must Testify in GA 2020 Probe

HeadlineNov 02, 2022

Chief Justice John Roberts temporarily blocked the Treasury Department from handing over Donald Trump’s tax records to the House Ways and Means Committee. The House committee has until November 10 to respond to Trump’s latest appeal. If Republicans take the House of Representatives in the midterms, it’s likely the demand for records will expire and will not be further pursued once the new Congress is seated.

Also on Tuesday, the Supreme Court refused to block a Georgia grand jury subpoena for Senator Lindsey Graham to testify about Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis says Graham called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger after the election and asked about “reexamining certain absentee ballots … to explore the possibility of a more favorable outcome for former President Donald Trump.”
