In the dispute over the publication of his tax returns, US President Donald Trump has suffered another legal defeat. A New York appeals court dismissed Trump’s lawyers’ objections on Monday, which are trying hard to stop taxpayer disclosure.

A federal judge had rejected the argument of Trump’s lawyers in New York at the beginning of October, according to which no criminal investigation was allowed against an incumbent president. This paved the way for the New York Procuratorate to seek Trump’s personal and tax returns from the past eight years.

Trump’s lawyers had filed an appeal – but without success. The appeals court upheld the previous decision of the federal judge on Monday. The lawsuit could eventually end up in the Supreme Court.

Manhattan prosecutor Cyrus Vance had requested tax returns from Trump’s accountants as part of an investigation into alleged false-money payments to two women. Both women claim to have had an affair with Trump. The President rejects the allegations. His lawyers tried to legally block the prosecution’s request for the documents.

Trump has never published his tax returns so far, fueling his critics with the suspicion that he has something to hide. Normally, American presidential candidates publish their returns during the election campaign. The Democrats in the House of Representatives have also been trying for months to force Trump to hand over his tax.
