Trump sues Manhattan district attorney over tax returns subpoena

Axios Politics 1 month ago

President Trump on Thursday sued Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance in an effort to block New York prosecutors from obtaining 8 years of his personal and corporate tax returns.

Context: The New York Times reported this week that Vance's office had subpoenaed Trump's tax returns as part of its investigation into hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election.

  • This will be the second time Trump has sued to block the release of his tax returns, having filed a lawsuit against House Democrats over a New York law that would permit tax officials to turn over Trump's state tax returns.

The big picture: A federal investigation into the payments resulted in Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleading guilty to campaign finance violations, and it "effectively concluded" in July with no further charges.

  • Vance's office opened a new investigation last month into whether the Trump Organization falsely listed its reimbursement of Cohen for the $130,000 payment to Daniels as a legal expense, which would be illegal under New York law.
