(CNN)A federal judge on Thursday said New York state prosecutors could have access to President Donald Trump’s accounting records for a criminal investigation, siding harshly against the President and increasing the possibility the tax records could go to a grand jury before the November presidential election.

The ruling by US District Judge Victor Marrero follows a landmark Supreme Court decision this summer and subsequent arguments from Trump that he has presidential immunity from such an inquiry.
“Justice requires an end to this controversy,” Marrero wrote.
Trump has already appealed. He’s asking the Second Circuit Court of Appeals for emergency help as he tries to stop the subpoena from being enforced next week.
