Skip to comments.Judge throws out Trump's bid to stop Manhattan DA subpoena of his personal and business tax records
Posted on 08/20/2020 8:30:43 AM PDT by Coronal
A federal judge on Thursday dismissed President Trump's latest bid to block a subpoena for his taxes from Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr.
U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero rejected Trump's arguments that the subpoena, from a state grand jury looking into payments made to adult actress Stormy Daniels before Trump 2016 presidential win, was issued in bad faith and is too broad.
"We will appeal," the president's personal lawyer Jay Sekulow said.
Vance is seeking eight years of Trump's personal and business tax returns as well as other financial documents as part of an investigation into the president's business practices.
The ruling comes about a month after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the president's earlier claims of absolute immunity from state criminal subpoenas. The high court did say Trump was entitled to object to the subpoena on alternative grounds.

Good old Roberts...
Victor Marrero Is a Clinton appointee.
But that's OK.
Clinton judge. Next stop is the appeals court.
If there was anything there it would have been leaked long ago
Judge Marrero is a dick. I was working at the U.S. Courthouse on 9/11. That sorry excuse for a human being would not let the jurors or his staff leave the building. The U.S. Marshalls had to go up to his Chambers and tell him that everyone HAD to leave as downtown Manhattan was under attack.
And how does this investigation help Americans of all political persuasions realize a stronger economy, job security, safer neighborhoods, better schools, a well equipped military, stronger international relations, etc.?
It doesn’t. It serves the far Left to do the exact opposite and maybe prop up their demented groper alzheimers suffering Village idiot as somehow a credible leader of the free world.
If they screw Trump, the unpleasantness begins in earnest, and will continue without mercy.
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.
Why is this listed in October 2019?
“U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero emphatically rejected Trump’s attempt to keep his financial records under wraps, calling the president’s broad claim of immunity from all criminal proceedings “extraordinary” and “an overreach of executive power” at odds with the Constitution.
For now, at least, the tax returns remain beyond the reach of prosecutors. The president’s lawyers appealed the judge’s ruling to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which put the matter on hold while it considers the case on an expedited basis.”
Ok, a-hole judge, you want eight years of taxes then we want eight years of taxes on Charles Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and husband and every Federal judge on the D.C. Circuit along with the entire Biden family.
("The courts conservative majority signaled concern) about improper harassment of Trump... Harassment of the POTUS is a federal crime...this investigation of this President is all Harassment. Where is the United States A.G. on this...
Witch hunt; will scream over a misplaced punctuation mark.
Mad Maxine Waters is a rich field to plow.
Puerto Rican born judge, Clinton appointed, has been involved with UN and OAS, NYC housing agencies, goes back to JOhn Lindsay days in NYC where he got his start in politics as assistant.
I will laugh my ass off if it turns out Trump gives astronomical amounts to charity
Someone needed to change their panties after that...
