Trump files new challenge to NY subpoena for his tax returns

<snip>
(Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Monday filed a new challenge to the Manhattan district attorney’s subpoena for his tax returns, weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court said the president was not immune from state criminal probes.

In a second amended complaint filed in federal court in Manhattan, Trump’s lawyers argued that the subpoena was “wildly overbroad,” and was issued in “bad faith” and amounts to “harassment.”

The subpoena “is so sweeping that it amounts to an unguided and unlawful ‘fishing expedition’ into the President’s personal and financial dealings,” Trump’s lawyers wrote in the complaint.

Trump, who is seeking re-election on Nov. 3, asked the court to declare the subpoena invalid.

2. He's been abusing the court/legal system all of his life. It's his business model.

The repubs are always screaming "frivolous lawsuit" when it comes to people trying to get justice for being injured or killed by defective products or corporate negligence. But when they want to use the legal system for what is usually financial advantage or to tie up or to run out the clock on the will of the people, that's just fine.

This will get thrown out, appealed, thrown out, appealed, and so on

4. The SCOTUS blew it on this one.

They chose not to be “political.” They don’t want to be accused of influencing the election, but they did so anyway—in Trump’s favor. They remanded the case. They should have settled the matter once and for all.

6. I agree.

Perhaps giving a free pass to Trump was the price the liberals had to pay for a couple of key votes from Chief Justice Roberts on other cases pending that term. There were a couple of shockers.
