Manhattan prosecutors can obtain President Trump’s financial records from his banks and accounting firms, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday.
Why it matters: The ruling is a stinging loss for Trump, who has fought relentlessly to keep these records secret.
The backdrop: Manhattan prosecutor Cy Vance subpoenaed 8 years’ worth of the president’s tax returns as part of an investigation into hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election.

Trump himself is calling it misconduct:
