Trump Files New Effort To Block Manhattan DA Vance’s Subpoena For Tax Records

12

President Donald Trump’s lawyers on Monday doubled down on efforts to block Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. from obtaining his tax records and other financial documents from the president’s accountants with a grand jury subpoena.

Their new filing in Manhattan federal court objecting to that subpoena came weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a 7-2 decision that Trump did not have an unqualified immunity while serving as president to prevent a state prosecutor from obtaining his records as part of a criminal probe.

That July 9 ruling left the door open for Trump to argue that the subpoena should be thrown out, or limited, on other grounds.

  1. if the DemocRATS are looking for one item all they need is that year’s tax return , not ALL his returns – they are in it just to destroy an innocent man. let them testify about the Russian hoax and the Steele dossier and that’ll answer all their questions about what their intentions are……………………

  2. Vance is a thug. He refused to prosecute a vandalizer of St. Patrick’s Cathedral because he called it social justice.
    Let’s see tax returns from Pelosi & her evil Democrats too.

  3. If he ever did something illegal, the IRS would have addressed it years ago.
    This is a devilish attemp to harass our great president.
    Nobody cares about his taxes anyway.

    • he has something to hide. he might o the as rich as he says. it’s not about legalities. it’s been a longstanding custom in the us for presidents to release their financials.

  4. Is this the same Vance trance that refused to prosecute the 2 WHITE pieces of trash that threw Molotov cocktails at a police car?

    • Seems you are hoping that the readership has no idea how the real world works.

      Seems rather obvious (and confirmed by a plethora of precedent) that these guys are out to trash Trump and everyone he does business with, using (among other non-legal methods) “leaks”. Such “leaks” lead to Trump’s competitors gaining unfair business advantage over Trump himself and over anyone he does business with. Anyone in business knows they cannot let their business secrets out to competitors.

      That is aside from the self-evident danger these business associates of Trump will face from these “peaceful” demonstrators rioting and burning that, as we have seen, the police are prevented from stopping.

    • I also wonder. If Obama did nothing wrong, then why did he not let us see his university transcripts? Unlike tax returns which are subject to routine review and audit by those people authorized to do so (and on top of that by special tax audits directed specifically against the President as well), university transcripts are not. So it seems there is considerably more reason to see them. And unlike tax returns, there is no business secret to be leaked by university transcripts. So let us see Obama’s transcripts already.
