2d Circuit: Manhattan DA Can Obtain Trump's Tax Returns

New York Times, The Manhattan D.A. Can Obtain Trump’s Tax Returns, an Appeals Panel Rules:

The Manhattan district attorney can enforce a subpoena seeking President Trump’s personal and corporate tax returns, a federal appeals panel ruled on Wednesday, dealing yet another blow to the president’s yearlong battle to deny prosecutors his financial records Trump v. Vance, No. 20-2766 (2d Cir. Oct. 7, 2020)

The unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel in New York rejected the president’s arguments that the subpoena should be blocked because it was too broad and amounted to political harassment from the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., a Democrat. ...

Mr. Trump is expected to try to appeal the decision in the United States Supreme Court.
