After a Supreme Court decision on Monday, former President Donald Trump was ordered to hand over all of his tax records dating back to 2011. Trump’s accounting firm Mazars USA was also subpoenaed and handed over documents detailing its dealings with Trump to Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance on Thursday morning.

Trump had been resisting Vance and the D.A.’s office’s subpoenas for several months, but this most recent ruling did not allow Trump to appeal the court’s decision. Vance’s office is investigating Trump in connection to potential tax crimes and insurance fraud.

Trump responded to the Supreme Court’s decision in a statement released Tuesday saying, “these are attacks by Democrats willing to do anything to stop the almost 75 million people (the most votes, by far, ever gotten by a sitting president) who voted for me in the election – an election which many people, and experts, feel that I won. I agree!”

Mazars USA did not object to the subpoena instead saying in a statement it would “respect the legal process and fully comply with its legal obligations.”
