The administrative stay will only be present during the court examines the case, and it is unclear how this will be resolved. U.S. District Court judge Victor Marrero earlier on Monday the law was ruthless in the direction of the President Department as he seek to dismiss Trump’s complaint, block the subpoena.

According to Marrero in his decision, Trump tweeted, issued what seemed to be a reference to Vance’s case.
