The filing lists Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. as the respondent; Vance is attempting to enforce a grand jury subpoena to obtain eight years of Trump's tax records. The petition, which was obtained by The Washington Post, argues that Trump is protected under "presidential immunity." Vance has rejected the president's claim to immunity in the investigation, saying that the president is attempting to "invent and enforce a new presidential 'tax return privilege.'"
