Saturday, 12 September 2020 _US President Donald Trump has called on a federal appeals court to block what he described as a bad faith effort by Manhattan’s top prosecutor to obtain his tax returns.

Trump challenges Manhattan prosecutor's 'dragnet' subpoena for tax returnsA lower court judge has allowed Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance to obtain eight years of business and personal tax returns from Trump’s longtime accounting firm Mazars USA.

In a filing with the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals in New York on Friday, Trump’s lawyers said Victor Marrero, the lower court judge, erred in giving Vance a green light.

The Republican president has been fighting to block Vance’s subpoena for a year, including at the US Supreme Court, which last month rejected his argument that he has immunity from criminal probes while in the White House.
