Trump asks Supreme Court to block House from obtaining his tax returns
Trump's attorneys said the former president would suffer "irreparable, case mooting harm" if he is required to turn over his tax returns.
Former President Donald Trump on Monday asked the Supreme Court to block the Democrat-led House Ways and Means Committee from obtaining his tax returns.
"Even assuming the Committee would suffer some abstract harm if it could not immediately access these records, that harm is dwarfed by the irreparable, case mooting harm that [Trump and his businesses] will suffer if a stay is denied," attorneys for the former president wrote in their filing asking for a stay of a mandate requiring him to turn over the tax documents.
Trump's request comes days after the D.C. Federal Appeals Court denied his bid to delay the release of his returns to the committee.
