Trump achieves a moratorium for not delivering his income statements

October 7, 2019

The president accuses the “radical” Democrats of using the Prosecutor's Office for political purposes

WASHINGTON, 7 (EUROPE PRESS)

A court of appeals in New York has granted a moratorium to the president of the United States, Donald Trump, to not be forced to deliver to the Prosecutor's Office his income statements of recent years, just an hour after a federal judge determined that the president had no right to refuse the request of the Public Ministry.

Trump's attorneys had alleged that a practicing president “cannot be subject to criminal proceedings while in office,” after Prosecutor Cyrus Vance requested Trump's tax documents – both personal and business – from The last eight years.

The petition, which is part of the investigations opened by the alleged payment to two women who said they had maintained relations with Trump, will continue according to what Judge Victor Marrero has ruled on Monday, who has decided to refrain from any decision to respect.

In this sense, Marrero has considered the arguments of Trump's lawyers “repulsive to the structure of government and constitutional values” of the United States, understanding that neither the president nor his companies, relatives or partners are above the law, according to NBC News

Trump's lawyers have immediately filed an appeal before the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which has paralyzed the delivery of any document for the time being, pending the study of the case in depth.

TRUMP accuses “RADICAL” DEMOCRATS

Trump, a business tycoon turned politician, has always been reluctant to make public any private information about his fortune. Upon arriving at the White House, he was forced to transfer the formal control of his companies to his children.

After hearing the decision of Judge Marrero, he has charged on Twitter against “the radicals of the left” who, after “failing on all fronts”, are “pressing” the New York authorities to “go for President Trump” . “Something like this has not happened to any president so far. It didn't even look like it,” he said.
