The U.S. Supreme Court agreed on Friday to hear President Trump's appeal that seeks to deny a subpoena of his financial records.

The subpoena obtained by Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance aims at obtaining nearly a decade's worth of tax returns and other financial records from Trump's banks and accountants. These records would be given to the House and local prosecutors in New York.

Lower courts originally ruled that Trump must follow the subpoena, but now the Supreme Court has agreed to hear the president's case.

The judges will most likely hear the case in March and come to a decision by the end of June.
