For the fifth time President Donald Trump has lost a court battle to shield his taxes. On Wednesday a three-judge federal appeals court panel ruled Trump’s taxes must be handed over to the Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals judges, Pierre N. Leval, Robert A. Katzmann, and Judge Raymond J. Lohier Jr., The New York Times reports, “rejected the president’s argument that the subpoena should be blocked because it was too broad and amounted to political harassment from the Manhattan district attorney.”

Trump is expected to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, which has already ruled against him, ordering lower courts to adjudicate his concerns but stating clearly his taxes must be handed over.

Cox appeared as a witness as the board was considering whether to certify President-elect Joe Biden's win in the state. Under state law, the board must certify the results before the close of Monday's meeting.

"I'm asking you to delay certification," Cox told the board's four members. "There are too many questions that need to be answered regarding this election, too many numerical anomalies and credible reports of procedural irregularities. We need to remove the distrust and the sense of procedural disenfranchisement felt by many Michigan voters."

Writing for the Bulwark on Monday, Jonathan V. Last cited editors of the National Review who are calling Trump's behavior “disgraceful” and “the most outlandish and irresponsible performance ever by a group of lawyers representing a president of the United States.”
