The income tax returns of former President Donald Trump can be given over to Congress, the Department of Justice announced on Friday.

The Office of Legal Counsel for DOJ said that the U.S. Congress, specifically the House Ways and Means Committee, made a “legitimate request” to review the former president’s tax records.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the one-term president’s appeal to block a subpoena seeking eight years of his personal and corporate financial records from before and during his time in the White House, giving Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance the green light to share the records with a grand jury.
