Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has agreed to delay enforcement of a grand jury subpoena seeking President Donald Trump’s tax returns in exchange for the president’s attorneys agreeing to an expedited timeline that would ensure any appeal makes it to the U.S. Supreme Court this term.

Such an expedited timeline would make it likely that any final decision from the high court is made before the 2020 presidential elections. Some observers of the case have surmised that the Trump team has been seeking to draw out the challenges so that any final decisions and any disclosure of financial information would come after the election next November, when its political effect would be neutralized.
