Trump wins delay in New York court fight over producing his tax returns

Earlier Monday, a federal judge tossed the president’s lawsuit that sought to block the release of his business and personal tax documents

“The president asserts an extraordinary claim in the dispute now before this court,” the Manhattan federal court judge wrote, later adding, “This Court cannot endorse such a categorical and limitless assertion of presidential immunity from” the judicial process.

In response to Trump asserting that not only he but also his family, businesses and associates were immune from producing documents, Marrero ruled that presidents, their families and businesses were not above the law. Marrero called the president’s argument “repugnant to the nation’s governmental structure and constitutional values.”
