JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/LEGAL/NEW YORK/SUPREME COURT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP TAXES: “The U.S. Justice Department on Friday [11-22-19] backed President Donald Trump in his fight at the Supreme Court to prevent his tax returns from being disclosed to a New York prosecutor. The court filing by Solicitor General Noel Francisco comes a week after Trump filed an appeal in his individual capacity seeking to reverse a lower court ruling that directed his longtime accounting firm, Mazars LLP, to hand over eight years of his tax returns to Manhattan prosecutor Cyrus Vance. Trump appealed a Nov. 4 ruling by the New York-based 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that said prosecutors can enforce a subpoena demanding his personal and corporate tax returns from 2011 to 2018 that would allow the material to be viewed by a grand jury.”

DEMS/LEGAL/NEW YORK/SUPREME COURT/TRUMP TAXES: “House Democrats and Manhattan’s top prosecutor told the Supreme Court Thursday [11-21-19] that President Donald Trump’s arguments to shield his tax returns and financial records are weak, and not deserving of the justices’ intervention. The Democrats said they should be allowed to enforce their demands for Trump’s financial records from his accounting firm immediately. The House’s plea to allow enforcement of its subpoena comes a few days after Chief Justice John Roberts imposed an indefinite delay to give the court time to figure out how to handle the case. Trump made an emergency appeal to the court to block the subpoena from being enforced in the meantime after an appeals court in Washington, DC, ruled against him. A similar fight also has reached the high court from New York, where the Manhattan district attorney wants Trump’s tax returns for a criminal investigation.”

CONGRESS/LEGAL/NEW YORK/TRUMP TAXES: “A Trump-appointed federal judge decided Monday [11-11-19] that President Donald Trump can’t sue New York state officials in a Washington, DC, court at this time to stop the release of his tax returns to Congress. The case is one of many where the President or his administration have asked federal judges to intervene before House Democrats obtain Trump’s financial records. Effectively, the ruling is a loss for Trump but a less significant one then the blows other courts have dealt him in cases involving Democrats’ pursuits of his financial records. Courts have sided with the House multiple times in cases where its committees have subpoenaed Trump’s financial records. Trump is still appealing those rulings, keeping the House subpoenas on hold. If Trump wants to continue to challenge a New York state law that says Congress can request his state tax returns, he’ll either need to wait for Congress to make the request or start over with a new lawsuit in a New York court, the judge, Carl Nichols of the federal district court in DC, said Monday.”

NEW YORK/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/VETS: “President Trump may have officially declared himself a permanent Florida resident, but he keeps returning to his hometown. On Monday [11-11-19], Mr. Trump will be kicking off the 100th annual New York City Veterans Day Parade at Madison Square Park in Manhattan, the event organizers announced on Wednesday [11-6-19]. He will be the first president to participate in the parade. Mr. Trump is deeply unpopular in the city and his visits are often met with protests. On Saturday [11-2-19], Mr. Trump popped into Manhattan for an Ultimate Fighting Championship event at Madison Square Garden. The reaction when he arrived: loud boos, and some cheers. The president will give an address at the park. He had been slated to lay a wreath at the Eternal Light Flagstaff memorial inside the park, the traditional site of the city’s Veterans Day ceremony but the White House decided that he would not after all, according to a parade spokesman, Pat Smith.”

FLORIDA/NEW YORK/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Consider it the latest twist in the battle of New York versus Florida. You’ve got the weather: a cold, snowy winter vs. hurricanes and the heat. The creatures: subway rats vs. swamp alligators. The pies: pizza vs. key lime. And now, the president’s primary residence: Trump Tower vs. Mar-a-Lago. The news that President Trump, a lifelong New Yorker, had quietly changed his primary residence from Manhattan to Palm Beach, Fla., caught many by surprise. But the move also evokes the longstanding, at times rivalrous relationship between the Empire and Sunshine States. New York has been losing thousands of residents each year, with many of them going to Florida. The United States Census Bureau’s 2017 American Community Survey, which estimated the number of people who moved states within the prior year, found that Florida gained the most new residents of any state, with the biggest group of expats coming from New York.”

FLORIDA/NEW YORK/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “It’s official: President Trump is turning his back on New York. It seems hard to imagine a figure like Mr. Trump coming out of any other city. His career and celebrity have been intertwined with New York, his outsize personality and public image forged in the hustle and grind of Manhattan. But a month ago, Mr. Trump changed his official address from Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue — his primary residence since it was built in 1983 — to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla. A lifelong New Yorker until he became president, Mr. Trump was shaped by the city where he grew up and built glitzy towers bearing his name. It was here that he walked on countless red carpets, held news conferences — and married, then divorced, his first two wives. All the while providing endless fodder for the city’s tabloid newspapers.”

FLORIDA/NEW YORK/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Jetting off to his Mar-a-Lago estate has become a ritual for President Donald Trump. Now the beach-side property is his permanent home. Trump has declared residency in Florida, announcing on Twitter on Thursday [10-30-19] night that he has changed his permanent address from his Trump Tower residence in midtown Manhattan, where he has lived since the late 1980s. Trump said that although he loved his home state of New York, he has been treated ‘very badly’ by lawmakers there and the move would be for the best…The president is extremely unpopular in New York, and the state’s lawmakers have made little effort to hide their disdain toward him and his conduct. The Manhattan district attorney’s office is also fighting to gain access to eight years of Trump’s tax returns as part of an investigation into hush-money payments made during his 2016 campaign, though it has met resistance by the Justice Department.”

COURTS/NEW YORK/TRUMP TAXES: “A lawyer for U.S. President Donald Trump told a federal appeals court Wednesday [10-23-19] the president does not have to hand over his tax returns to New York state prosecutors because he is immune from criminal investigation. William Consovoy, an attorney for the president, told the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that Trump has immunity until he leaves office and said prosecutors would not even have the power to do anything if Trump shot someone on 5th Avenue in New York City. The remark echoed a past comment by Trump, who has said his supporters are so loyal that he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and not lose a single vote. The case, which pits Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance against Trump, is one of several legal battles in which the Republican president is seeking to shield his personal finances from scrutiny. In August, Vance, a Democrat, subpoenaed Trump’s personal and corporate tax returns from 2011 to 2018, and other records from the president’s longtime accounting firm Mazars USA.”
