“In response to the subpoenas, the District’s Attorney issued by the New York County, we have filed a lawsuit this morning in Federal court on behalf of the President, to address the serious constitutional issues at stake in this case,” Advisor to the President of Jay Sekulow told Fox News on Thursday.
On Monday, Mazars, chief marketing officer, Jennifer Farrington confirmed to Fox News that the company had “received a subpoena” as a part of the Vance inquiry, but would not inform on other details.
In a statement, the firm said the company will “respect the legal process and fully comply with its statutory obligations.”
The company added: “We firmly believe in the ethical and professional rules and regulations, our industry, our work and our customer interactions. As a matter of business on both political and technical rules, we do not comment on the work we perform for our customers.”
On Thursday, Mazars said, you want to comply “fully” with legal obligations, and that your “statement remains the same” in terms of the new trump suit.
The subpoenas to Mazars were supposed to at the end of last month, issued after the public Prosecutor’s office opened a criminal investigation into the role of the President and his family business played-silent-money-payments, the 2016 presidential elections.
The former trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen staged 130.000 US-Dollar-payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels who said she had a sexual encounter with the President in the year 2006 in the weeks before the election. The President refunded had paid Cohen for the money, but denied the alleged affair, saying that the payments were personal matters, not campaign expenses.
Cohen pleaded guilty last year to the campaign, people Finance law violations, tax evasion and other crimes and is currently on a three-year sentence.
Meanwhile, Vance is not the only one searching for Trump’s tax returns. In a separate case, the President sued the house ways and means Committee and New York state officials in July, for the employment of an “unconstitutional” law to get his state tax revenue, according to the Treasury Department’s move to block the Federal government’s records from release.
TRUMP SUED THE HOUSE TO PROTECT THE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE, NEW YORK STATE OFFICIALS, HIS TAX RETURNS
The lawsuit was filed by the President, “in his capacity as a private man,” in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against the Committee, the New York State Attorney General Letitia James and a Commissioner of the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance Michael Schmidt.
This action came after the Committee Chairman, Richard Neal, D-Mass., Earlier this month, sued Trump management, accused of violating the officials of the Federal act by refusal of compliance with the panel’s requests and subpoenas for documents.
Days later, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a law into a law, the TRUST Act, by which the legislators on Capitol Hill Trump the state tax returns. Under the previous law, though, state tax returns were required to continue to be private with an exception for law enforcement.

The President of the action will be claimed in July that the new law was “unconstitutional” and “violates the First Amendment,” to say, it was enacted, “discrimination and retaliation against President trump for his language and his policy.”
The filing also claims that the new law was part of “a larger campaign, to discover in New York and free, the President of the private financial information, in the hope to damage him politically.”
