Trump to Fight Supreme Court’s Subpoena of His Tax Returns

President Donald Trump’s lawyers told a federal judge on Wednesday that they intend to keep fighting a New York grand jury subpoena for his tax returns and will file their legal objections before the end of the month.

Both Trump and the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus Vance, called for an expedited process in a joint filing before a federal district court judge in New York. Trump’s lawyers said they would file their initial objection to the subpoena by July 27. The final legal briefs from both sides would be due Aug. 14.

Trump’s lawyers said the president intends to take full advantage of the avenues the Supreme Court left open to him in its ruling last week. The justices rejected his claims that he is absolutely immune from state grand jury subpoenas.
