US Supreme Court agrees to shield Trump financial records

The U.S. Supreme Court agreed on Friday to hear President Donald Trumps appeals in three separate cases to prevent his financial records and tax returns from being handed over to Democratic-led House of Representatives Committees and a New York prosecutor.

The Republican president is attempting to block subpoenas for financial records from various Democratic-led House committees investigating corruption or foreign meddling in the US elections process.

House probes are not part of the impeachment proceeding currently facing Trump after the judiciary committee passed the impeachment so it can move onto the upper chamber of the House.
