A federal judge on Friday denied President’s Donald Trump’s bid to temporarily block a ruling allowing a subpoena for his tax returns and other financial records.
“The President has not demonstrated that he will suffer irreparable harm,” Judge Victor Marrero wrote in the decision.
The ruling came a day after the judge rejected Trump’s latest attempt to stop the Manhattan District Attorney’s office from enforcing a subpoena issued to his accounting firm.
Trump’s lawyers on Thursday had filed a request for an emergency stay pending an appeal of that ruling.
