Mr Trump, who recently announced he wanted to run for president in 2024, has always refused to release his tax returns when he was in the White House – something every other president has done since the 1970s. Has done since – and turned to Justice to block a parliamentary request seeking these documents for the years 2015 to 2020.
After several episodes, a federal court of appeals authorized the tax services to transmit these documents to a commission of the House of Representatives in late October. The real estate magnate then sent an urgent appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States to stop the transfer.
It suspended transmission of the documents on 1 November while waiting for elements to decide on the merits. After receiving arguments from both sides, he ultimately rejected Donald Trump’s request on 22 November.
“The Treasury followed the court’s decision last week,” a ministry spokesman told AFP.
Members of the committee were not immediately available to comment on this information.
The House of Representatives is controlled by Democrats until January after Republicans lost the majority in the November 8 midterm elections.
