Lawyers for Donald Trump on Monday filed a new challenge to the Manhattan District Attorney’s subpoena for the president's tax returns, weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court said the president was not immune from state criminal probes.
In a second amended complaint filed in Manhattan federal court, Trump’s lawyers argued that the subpoena was “wildly overbroad” and was issued in “bad faith” and amounts to “harassment.” Trump, who is seeking re-election on Nov. 3, has fought to keep his tax returns secret.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance subpoenaed Trump’s accounting firm for eight years of his business and personal returns and other documents as part of a criminal investigation involving Trump and the Trump Organization, his family’s real estate business.
Carey Dunne, general counsel for Vance, on July 16 warned U.S. District Court Judge Victor Marrero against allowing Trump to delay long enough to get beyond statutes of limitations.
Trump filed suit last year to block Vance from getting his records, arguing the subpoena was invalid. On July 9, the Supreme Court in a 7-2 vote rejected his argument that he was immune from state criminal probes while in the White House. The high court said, however, that Trump could challenge the subpoena on other grounds.
