Benjamin Weiser is reporting for The New York Times a panel of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals November 4, ordered that President Donald Trump’s accounting firm must turn over eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns to Manhattan prosecutors. The three-judge appeals panel did so without taking a position on Trump’s primary argument — that he was immune from all criminal investigations. Instead, the panel said that because Trump's accounting firm, not the president himself, was subpoenaed for the documents, it did not matter whether presidents have immunity. The case now appears to be headed to the United States Supreme Court. A spokesman for the Manhattan DA said the office had no comment on the appeals court decision.
