Donald Trump fails to block Congress from getting his income tax returns

A federal appeals court rejected former President Donald Trump’s appeal that his tax returns must be disclosed to Congress.

The three-judge panel on the appeals court unanimously denied Trump’s appeal.

Since the justices rejected that he had broad immunity as president, he will now appeal to the US Supreme Court for review.

The House panel sought access to Trump’s federal tax returns as part of an investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s audit program.

The panel then obtained copies of Trump’s personal and business tax records as part of a criminal investigation.

Trump reportedly tried to prevent his accountants from handing over the documents, taking the issue to the Supreme Court.

Donald Trump is an American politician and real-estate developer with a net worth of $2 billion in 2022.

Trump is primarily known for being the owner of The Trump Organization, a real estate and licensing conglomerate.
