Trump Will Fight Appeals Court's Tax Return Decision at the Supreme Court
 
A federal appeals court has ruled that President Trump must turn over his tax returns to state criminal investigators.

According to CNBC:

A federal appeals court ruled Monday that President Donald Trump’s tax returns must be turned over to a state grand jury.

In a unanimous ruling, the three-judge appeals panel in New York rejected Trump’s argument that he is immune as president from criminal investigation while in the White House.

Trump’s lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said that the president would ask the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the ruling by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

“The decision of the Second Circuit will be taken to the Supreme Court. The issue raised in this case goes to the heart of our Republic. The constitutional issues are significant,” Sekulow said in a statement.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. wants 8 years' worth of President Trump's corporate and personal tax returns.
