New York judge rules Trump must turn over tax returns for hush money investigation

President Donald Trump lost his bid Monday to shield his tax returns from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, which subpoenaed them as part of an investigation into “hush payments” to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal.

In a 75-page decision Judge Victor Marrero said he could not endorse “such a categorical and limitless assertion of presidential immunity from judicial process as being countenanced by the nation’s constitutional plan.”

Trump had argued he was immune from any criminal proceeding while in office. The judge said the president was entitled to no such “protective shield.”
