A spokesperson for the Manhattan district attorney’s office said Thursday that prosecutors enforced a subpoena on Trump’s accounting firm within hours of the Supreme Court’s ruling on Monday and now has the documents in hand.

District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. had been fighting for a year and a half for access to Trump’s tax records for a criminal grand jury investigation into his business dealings.

The documents are protected by grand jury secrecy rules and are not expected to be made public.
