SCOTUS ruled Monday that the investigation into former President Trump’s tax affairs may continue.
Monday’s rulings were the Court’s first in four months and will allow a state prosecutor — and possibly a grand jury — to get access to President Trump’s tax filings. The documents will be protected by grand jury secrecy and probably never revealed to the public. The Court had also previously decided in July of 2020 that the investigation into President Trump’s finances led by Manhattan DA Cy Vance could continue.
Vance responded to Monday’s ruling with a simple tweet: “The work continues.”
The work continues.

SCOTUS also declined to hear a case from the Pennsylvania Republican Party and Trump campaign regarding election fraud of the 2020 presidential election.
Trump plans to position himself for a 2024 presidential run this week after staying silent since leaving DC. He will give a speech at CPAC on Sunday, marking his first public speech since President Biden’s inauguration.
