Reuters: Trump asks U.S. Supreme Court to prevent release of his tax returns15 November 2019 | 03:21 | FOCUS News Agency
Trump appealed a Nov. 4 ruling by the New York-based 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that prosecutors can enforce a subpoena demanding his personal and corporate tax returns from 2011 to 2018 from accounting firm Mazars LLP.
“In our petition, we assert that the subpoena violates the U.S. Constitution and therefore is unenforceable. We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will grant review in this significant constitutional case and reverse the dangerous and damaging decision of the appeals court,” said Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s lawyers.
The legal questions include whether the subpoena violates the part of the U.S. Constitution that lays out the power of the president.
