Appeals court set to hear arguments over Trump's tax returns

ABC News Finance 3 weeks ago

An appeal panel is poised to hear President Donald Trump's lawyers argue that New York state investigators should not be permitted to see his tax returns.

The arguments before the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals are set for Wednesday. They come after a lower-court judge tossed out Trump's challenge to a subpoena on his longtime accountant for records since 2011.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. wants the records for a criminal probe stemming in part from payments to two women who claim affairs with the president.

Trump's lawyers say the Constitution prohibits states from subjecting the U.S. president to criminal process while he's in office.

Vance's attorneys say no one is above the law.

Both sides agree tax records can't be turned over until appeals are finished.
