Seems to me he could refuse, open a case, and let it go to the Supreme Court

I recall an expression, to "quash a subpoena." So I'll bet the answer is yes. Was there a way for the DA to judge-shop sufficiently to prevent getting quashed? I don't know.

“New York City prosecutors have subpoenaed President Donald Trump’s tax returns,“

Without a care in the world.

About time Trump’s base hangs their heads in shame.

I think they can get the state returns - but not the federal ones without a fight.

Need to fire the prosecutors for abuse of their authority.

A state DA must present incontrovertible, hard evidence to a judge that a crime has been committed to get access to those documents. Even that ruling can be challenged all the way to SCOTUS because a federal officer (president) is the potential defendant.

New York prosecutors subpoena Trump’s tax returns.

Truely, an exercise in mental masterbation.

Agreed, but I was wondering if this subpoena was on that issue, or if they were fishing under a different excuse.
