MSNBC: Supreme Court Rules Manhattan Prosecutor Can Access Trump Financial Records

‘By a vote of 7-2, the Supreme Court has said that the president is not absolutely immune from a state grand jury criminal process’

EXCERPT:

WILLIAMS: “So by a vote of 7-2, the Supreme Court has said that the president is not absolutely immune from a state grand jury criminal process, the court does not seem that concerned about the second prospect the president raised about harassment from district attorneys across the country who are politically elected, harassing the president by a 7-2 vote, the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the district attorney Cyrus Vance. We are looking through the opinion here to see whether there are any further restrictions on this, whether this has to go back to a lower court, but this is a victory for Cyrus Vance. Now that does not mean — so the court is saying the president does have the authority to challenge specific subpoenas that deal with the office of the president, if any of what the grand jury wants touches on his official duties.”
