The Supreme Court wrapped up its term today by handing a big blow to President Trump. In a 7-2 decision, the justices said Trump will have to turn over his tax returns to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance. It also sent a request for those same documents from House Democrats back to the lower courts.
