Trump's Tax Returns Supreme Court Case: What You Need to Know

The Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on Tuesday on whether President Trump can block the release of his financial records, setting the stage for a ruling on the power of presidents to resist demands for information from prosecutors and Congress.

When will the arguments take place?

The court will consider two sets of cases, with one scheduled to start at 10 a.m. and the second an hour later. The first concerns subpoenas from two House committees, and the second a subpoena from the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., a Democrat. Both arguments are very likely to last much longer than the usual hour.

Can I listen?

Yes. Since the court started hearing arguments by telephone last week in response to the coronavirus pandemic, it has provided a live audio feed. That has never happened before, and it will give the public a rare opportunity to listen in live to arguments that could reshape the balance of power among the three branches of government. We’ll feature it on nytimes.com.

3. trump knows

Probably why he was acting out today at his propaganda presser that he'll lose and be exposed. His mole likely gave him bad news , and he lashes out when that has happened to him in the past too. He couldn't bribe or blackmail Roberts ? Maybe trump needs to be asked if he's contacted Justice Roberts concerning anything in the courts involving him. I'd bet he has, and he couldn't get him to submit to his wishes.
