President Donald Trump urged a judge to block a New York grand jury from reviewing his tax filings and disputed a suggestion by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. that the panel may be looking into bank and insurance fraud at the Trump Organization.

It’s the president’s latest attempt to guard his financial information since the Supreme Court ruled last month he’s not immune from state criminal investigations. Trump sued Vance in September to block a subpoena to Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars USA. Trump claims the subpoena was issued to Mazars in bad faith and that it seeks too much information, constituting harassment of the president.
