A Washington D.C. Circuit judge has rejected President Trump’s appeal of a judge’s ruling that the Manhattan District Attorney’s office can legally subpoena for the president’s tax returns, officials said.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on Friday ordered Mazars USA, an accounting firm used by Trump and the Trump Organization, to hand over the eight-years’ worth of tax returns pertaining to both parties.

At the end of August, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. subpoenaed Mazars USA, arguing that they were part of “an ongoing state criminal prosecution,” according to court papers.

Then, on Sept. 19, Trump sued Vance, a Democrat, and the accounting firm, calling the subpoena “unconstitutional.”

“Because the Mazars subpoena attempts to criminally investigate a sitting president, it is unconstitutional,” court papers argued. “This court should declare it invalid and enjoin its enforcement until the president is no longer in office.”
