(AbsoluteNews.com) – In early July, the Supreme Court ruled President Donald Trump could not block subpoenas for his tax returns. The justices said he does not have a heightened immunity, as his team was arguing, and sent the case back to lower courts. This week, the president’s attorneys tried a different tactic to keep New York prosecutors from accessing the financial records.
President Trump on Monday mounted his most forceful and detailed legal attack yet on the subpoena for his tax returns by the Manhattan district attorney, arguing the request was “wildly overbroad” and “issued in bad faith,” a new court filing showshttps://t.co/1MXJlX2o9X

On July 27, Trump’s attorneys filed an amended lawsuit in the Southern District of New York (SDNY) alleging the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s subpoena for 8 years of financial records and tax returns “amounts to harassment of the President.” The legal team said the grand jury subpoena was an “overreaching demand designed to pick apart” the commander-in-chief.
When the Supreme Court ruled Trump didn’t have immunity, they did say he could squash the subpoenas by other means. That’s what his team is trying to do. It’ll be interesting to see how it all plays out.
