NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday urged a federal appeals court to block Manhattan's top prosecutor from enforcing a subpoena for eight years of tax returns in connection with a criminal probe of his business practices.
In a filing with the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan, Trump's lawyers said the subpoena from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance "makes dragnet requests for reams of the President's papers," supporting Trump's claims that the subpoena was overbroad and issued in bad faith.
Trump is challenging an Aug. 20 decision by U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero in New York to let Vance obtain the returns from the president's longtime accounting firm Mazars USA.sonos sonos One (Gen 2) - Voice Controlled Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa Built-in - Black read more
