Appeals Court Rules Trump to Hand over 8 Years of Tax Returns to State Prosecutors


A federal appeals court on Monday ruled President Trump must hand over eight years of tax returns, personal and corporate, to a state grand jury as part of an ongoing criminal probe.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. subpoenaed Trump’s accounting firm Mazars USA for eight years of personal and corporate tax returns. The firm acknowledged it would “respect the legal process and fully comply with its legal obligations.”

In September, Trump’s lawyers filed a lawsuit to combat Vance’s attempts, citing “significant constitutional issues,” as Breitbart News reported:

“In response to the subpoenas issued by the New York County District Attorney, we have filed a lawsuit this morning in Federal Court on behalf of the President in order to address the significant constitutional issues at stake in this case,” Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow said in a statement in September. – READ MORE
