BREAKING (will update)

Trump must release his tax returns to a state grand jury - vote was 7-2

Trump does not need to release his tax returns to the House committee - vote was 7-2
The house committees must show great need for the documents

Interesting. We always knew the state request was going to be a more powerful argument.

I wonder what the reason for rejecting the House ask is going to be.

7 to 2 in both - pretty strong message to the President that he is not above the law.

......the fact that he is fighting so hard to keep it a secret must mean there is something off with his returns.......

It wasn't outright rejected, the bar for release was raised. Congress must show an overriding reason. It cannot be a fishing expedition.

Looking beyond Trump, this was a good decision. Otherwise, every President would have their finances forensically examined by opponents looking for anything (real or interpreted) that could be used politically. That would be an infringement on the Separation of Powers.
