The US Supreme Court has ordered the handover of Donald Trump’s tax returns to House Democrats, ending a lengthy legal challenge brought by the former president — and Trump is not happy.

In a post on Truth Social, Trump called the decision “unprecedented” and said it “creates [a] A terrible precedent for future presidents.”

“Why should anyone be surprised that the Supreme Court ruled against me, they always do! Handing over tax returns is unprecedented, and it makes [a] Terrible precedent for future presidents,” Trump wrote in a pair of posts.

“The Supreme Court has lost its respect, dignity and standing, and has become nothing more than a political body, costing our country dearly. They refused to even look at the 2020 election fraud. Shame on them!” he added, with a rhetorical question about whether President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden would undergo the same treatment.

In 2021, Biden’s DOJ said Congress should be allowed to review Trump’s tax returns.

Trump and his legal team immediately sued to block the Treasury Department from releasing the records and asked the Supreme Court to intervene — fueling the legal battle.

Lower courts sided with the House committee, but Chief Justice John Roberts granted a stay in October, preventing the Treasury Department from handing over the records until the Supreme Court can rule on the legality of the case.

On Tuesday, Roberts rejected Trump’s request and reversed his earlier obstruction.

“The application for stay of order presented to the Chief Justice and referred to the Court by him,” a Supreme Court judgment said. “The earlier order passed by the Chief Justice is vacated.”

The release of records comes after Republicans won a majority of seats in the House of Representatives, giving them the power to choose majorities in each committee.

It was not immediately clear whether Republicans, when they take control of the House in January 2023, intend to continue investigating tax records.

Some Republicans have called for an investigation into the business dealings of Biden and his son while in power in the chamber.
