  • Trump seeking to block House panel from getting tax documents

Chief Justice John Roberts temporarily blocked a House committee from getting Donald Trump’s tax returns, issuing an interim order that gives the US Supreme Court more time to consider the former president’s bid for a lengthier delay.

The House Ways and Means Committee had been set to get six years of tax returns as soon as Thursday after a federal appeals court rejected Trump’s latest bid to block the transfer from the Internal Revenue Service. In his two-sentence order, Roberts directed the committee to respond by Nov. 10 to Trump’s request.
