President Trump to claim 'absolute immunity' from subpoenas in Supreme Court appeal His efforts to challenge the subpoenas in federal courts have been unsuccessful.

The assertion of expansive presidential power comes as Trump faces an array of mounting requests for his personal and business financial records.

"It would literally put the president above the law if the Supreme Court sides with the president's lawyers in this case," Finkelstein said.

The subpoenas are addressed to Trump's personal accounting firm, Mazars USA, and three financial institutions used by him and his business.
