The investigation of Donald J. Trump's tax paperwork that was being conducted by Democrats in the House has been put on hold for the time being. Donald Trump is currently serving as the 45th President of the United States of America.
NEW: Trump’s tax returns remain safe from the House Ways & Means Committee for now. Chief Justice Roberts issued a (temporary) stay and ordered the committee to respond to Trump’s request for a more permanent stay by next Thursday. pic.twitter.com/kk3y4FT58u

An injunction from Chief Justice John Roberts caused a temporary delay in the data transfer to the House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday. The previous president made a request for this to be carried out, and as a result, it was. On Monday, Trump's legal team submitted their request for the hearing to be postponed and appealed the decision.
The Democrats on the committee have suggested that they need to view President Trump's tax returns in order to draught legislation dictating how the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may audit presidents. This is something that the Democrats feel is necessary in order to go forward with the legislation.
The mandate issued by Roberts requires that a response from the committee be provided no later than Thursday, November 10 at noon.
