Today the Supreme Court is livestreaming oral arguments for three cases relating to the production of Trump's financial documents including his tax returns.

Trump v. Mazars & Trump v. Deutsche Bank / Capitol One have been consolidated and involve congressional subpoenas served on Trump's accountants and lenders, respectively.

The stated purpose of The Mazars subpoena is to investigate government ethics laws. The stated purpose of the Deutsche and Capitol One subpoenas is to investigate the Trump Organization with respect to foreign influence in US elections. The Trump Organization argues that the real and impermissible purpose of the subpoenas is to discover whether Trump or the Trump Organization committed a crime.
