Trump lawyers asks court to block DA’s subpoena if case goes to Supreme Court

New York Post 1 month ago

Lawyers for President Trump are asking an appeals court to indefinitely bar the Manhattan D.A. from getting his tax returns and other financial documents in the event the case goes all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“The President respectfully asks the Court, if it rules against him in its opinion, to stay its mandate and the challenged subpoena until the President can file a certiorari petition with the Supreme Court,” Trump’s lawyers wrote Monday in a motion filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Trump originally sued Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance last month to keep the top prosecutor from enforcing subpoenas served on accounting firm Mazars USA, seeking eight years of personal and corporate financial records — including tax returns — for the president and other third parties as part of an ongoing grand jury investigation.

A Manhattan federal court judge last week ruled against Trump’s claims he was subject to total immunity from an investigation while in office, prompting the President’ lawyers to file an emergency appeal.

Arguments before the appellate panel are currently scheduled for Oct. 23.
