Supreme Court blocks release of Trump tax records to Congress

The Supreme Court’s chief justice on Tuesday temporarily blocked Congress’ efforts to obtain former President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

The order from Chief Justice John Roberts put a pause on a long-running legal battle over the House Ways & Means Committee’s access to Trump’s tax records.

Trump had appealed Monday for a freeze at the nation’s top court after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit found the former president had to fork over the tax papers to the congressional committee.

In a brief order, Roberts set a Nov. 10 deadline for the House committee to respond to Trump’s appeal.
