On Tuesday, May 12th, the Supreme Court of the United States will hear the following cases relating to investigations of President Donald Trump’s finances:
- Trump v. Deutsche Bank, A.G.: a case about the subpoena issued by the House Intelligence and Financial Services Committees to Trump’s biggest lender, Deutsche Bank, for ten years of Trump’s financial records.
- Trump v. Mazars USA, LLP: a case about the subpoena issued from the House Intelligence and Financial Services Committees to Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars, for a number of Trump’s tax records.
- Trump v. Vance: a case about subpoenas issued by a grand jury empaneled in the state of New York currently investigating The Trump Organization for criminal conduct.
The cases were originally scheduled for March 31, but were postponed in light of the quarantining efforts to stem the Coronavirus pandemic. In recent weeks, the Supreme Court has been meeting via teleconference, and has also been live-streaming its oral arguments for the first time in history. These cases will be live-streamed as they are argued on Tuesday, beginning at 10:00 a.m. EST.
A link to NPR’s site for listening to the cases can be found here.
Starting at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, join Robert J. DeNault, Jess Coleman and other Forensic News analysts for a live pre-argument discussion to get up to speed on the cases and what’s at stake.
