President Trump and the Justice Department urged a federal appeals court to reverse a lower court’s tax return subpoena.
Friday, the DOJ filed an amicus brief in the closely watched case requesting the 2nd Circuit block the release of President Trump’s tax returns.
It argued the request for personal documents of the president violates the principles of federalism and separation of powers between state and federal levels.
