Skip to comments.Judge throws out Trump challenge to Manhattan DA subpoena for tax records
Posted on 08/20/2020 8:29:40 AM PDT by EBH
U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero said the president failed to show that the subpoena would pose an unfair burden, siding in favor of Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr., who has said his office is pursuing an investigation of potential violations of state law. Trump is likely to appeal the decision to a higher court.
The presidents attorney, Jay Sekulow, said Trump will appeal the decision. It is unlikely that any records obtained via subpoena by Vances office will become public before the presidential election this fall, if at all...
... More clues emerged in a filing earlier in August, in which Vance suggested he could also be pursuing an inquiry into potential bank and insurance fraud. Vances office declined to comment on Thursdays ruling.

Here we go again.
pursuing potential inquiry?
I thought one needed some sort of evidence to do the inquiry?
Clinton judge, nothing new.
This is the result of the last Supreme Court decision on the matter. It got kicked down and so the whole circus was inevitably going to start all over again.
So that’s where this is.
L OL - those records will be leaked to the press 5 minutes after Vance gets them.
Not in their entirety. Only some misleading abstracts out of context.
Classic fishing expedition.
Leaking is SOP in fake investigations.
“investigation of potential violations”
So they dont have any evidence of actual violations...
it’s a FISHING EXPEDITION
Cyrus Vance Jr., son of Cyrus “Let a Thousand Flowers Bloom” Vance, former failed Secy of State under Jimmy Carter. Like father, like son.
U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero should go on the cover
of Field and Stream for all that he just did for fishermen.
LOL - those records will be leaked to the press 5 minutes after Vance gets them.
U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero
Marrero was nominated by President Bill Clinton on May 27, 1999, to a seat vacated by Sonia Sotomayor.[
He took Senior Status at the end of 2010.
He is well known for twice striking down elements of the USA PATRIOT Act, most recently in September 2007, stating that the provision in question "offends the fundamental constitutional principles of checks and balances and separation of powers."
On October 7, 2019, Marrero dismissed an attempt by President Trump to prevent his accountants from complying with a New York prosecutor's subpoena for eight years of President Donald Trump's tax returns.
On February 11, 2020, Marrero allowed T-Mobile and Sprint to complete their merger after nine states and the District of Columbia sought to block it.
On August 20, 2020, Marrero dismissed another attempt by President Trump to allow his accountants to disregard the New York prosecutor's subpoena for eight years of the president's tax returns. In the ruling, he wrote that the presidents arguments that the prosecutors grand jury subpoena was wildly overbroad and issued in bad faith.
In Marreros 75-page ruling striking down Trumps argument claiming that sitting presidents are immune to investigations, the judge called the legal argument repugnant, among other things.
I am sure that we can now see the DA's, and mayors tax returns.
Yeah it called something like probable cause and is in probably the New York constitution as well as the federal one
except you could claim that for each our 330 million
that can’t be the only excuse
It is unlikely that any records obtained via subpoena by Vances office will become public before the presidential election this fall, if at all...
Yeah, good one.
[Marrero was nominated by President Bill Clinton on May 27, 1999, to a seat vacated by Sonia Sotomayor.]
Well, what a coincidence. Shocked, I am. Shocked, I tell you.
I want to see this Judges bank and tax records. I am guessing that he suddenly came across a lot of money.
Since the privacy of tax records are suddenly void, where is Hunters and his dads? There is a few million bucks from Ukraine that I suspect the taxes are due on. You don’t go to all that trouble to money launder it so you can pay taxes on it.
