On Wednesday morning the Second Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments regarding President Trumps legal argument that he is immune from criminal investigations. The hearing which will have a live audio only feed, came about after a federal judge dismissed the case two weeks ago.

At the time the New York Times reported that Federal District Court of Manhattan Judge Victor Marrero called the argument that a President was immune from being investigated “repugnant to the nation’s governmental structure and constitutional values.” President Trump’s lawyers quickly filed an appeal.

NBC News explains that President Trump is attempting to block a grand jury subpoena that was obtained by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.

The subpoena was for three years’ worth of “financial records from the Trump Organization and for Trump-related business records going back to 2011 — including his personal tax records — from the accounting firm Mazars USA. Vance’s prosecutors are investigating whether Trump or his company broke any state laws when they reimbursed former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen for hush-money payments.”

Cohen is serving three years in prison due in part to campaign finance violations regarding the hush-money payments.

Courthouse News reporter Adam Klasfeld reported via Twitter the Judges that will hear the appeal.
