MORNING HERE I'M SANDRA SMITH.
>> Bill: GOOD MORNING.
I'M BILL HEMMER.
FEDERAL APPEALS COURT RULING
MOMENTS AGO THE PRESIDENT DOES
NOT HAVE PRESIDENTIAL IMMUNITY
FROM GRAND JURY INVESTIGATIONS.
THE BATTLE NOW MAY BE HEADING
TO THE U.S. SUPREME COURT.
WE HAVE LIVE TEAM FOX COVERAGE
IN A MOMENT AND WE'LL GET TO
THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT LIVE.
WE'LL BEGIN NOW AT THE WHITE
HOUSE WITH CHIEF WHITE HOUSE
CORRESPONDENT JOHN ROBERTS ON
THE NORTH LAWN.
GOOD MORNING.
>> GOOD MORNING.
A CASE THAT'S BEEN GOING ON FOR
SOME TIME NOW.
A FEDERAL DISTRICT JUDGE IN NEW
YORK CITY WHO RULED THAT THE
PRESIDENT HAD TO HAND OVER AT
LEAST NOT THE PRESIDENT BUT THE
PRESIDENT'S ACCOUNTING COMPANY
HAD TO HAND OVER EIGHT YEARS OF
TAX RETURNS TO THE MANHATTAN
DISTRICT ATTORNEY CYRUS VANS
JUNIOR.
THE PRESIDENT'S ATTORNEYS
APPEALED IT TO THE SECOND COURT
OF APPEALS HANDLING MANHATTAN.
THE SECOND CIRCUIT HAS NOW COME
DOWN WITH A RULING UPHOLDING
THE DISTRICT COURT JUDGE'S
DECISION THAT THE PRESIDENT'S
ACCOUNTING FIRM HAS TO TURN
OVER THOSE TAX RETURNS.
IN THE OPINION THE JUDGES MAKE
A DISTINCT BETWEEN A CRIMINAL
PROCEEDING AND A GRAND JURY
INVESTIGATION.
DON'T FORGET, THIS WAS A
SUBPOENA THAT WAS ISSUED BY A
GRAND JURY THAT WAS IMPANELED
BY THE MANHATTAN DISTRICT
ATTORNEY.
THE PANEL SAYING WE HOLD
HOWEVER THAT ANY PRESIDENTIAL
IMMUNITY FROM STATE CRIMINAL
PROCESS DOES NOT EXTEND TO
INVESTIGATIVE STEPS LIKE THE
GRAND JURY SUBPOENA AT ISSUE
HERE.
WE ACCORDINGLY AFFIRM THE
DISTRICT COURT'S DECISION ON
THE IMMUNITY QUESTION.
THAT MEANS THE PRESIDENT IS NOT
IMMUNE FROM THIS WHICH WE
CONSTRUE HAS AN ORDER AND
REMAND FOR FURTHER PROCEEDINGS.
IT DOESN'T MEAN THE WHITE HOUSE
AND PRESIDENT HAVE LOST THE
FINAL BATTLE HERE.
AGAIN, THIS WAS DECIDED BY A
THREE-JUDGE PANEL WHICH
INCLUDED THE CHIEF JUDGE AND
TWO CIRCUIT JUDGES.
THE PRESIDENT HAS A COUPLE OF
OPTIONS.
HIS ATTORNEYS CAN APPEAL TO THE
SECOND CIRCUIT FOR WHAT IS
CALLED A HEARING WHERE ALL THE
JUDGES IN THE SECOND CIRCUIT
WOULD REHEAR THIS CASE AND
DECIDE THE CASE, OR THEY COULD
TAKE IT TO THE SUPREME COURT.
WE'RE STILL AWAITING A DECISION
ON WHAT THEY'LL DO ABOUT A
SIMILAR RULING IN THE
WASHINGTON, D.C. CIRCUIT COURT
OF APPEALS, A THREE-JUDGE PANEL
DETERMINED THE PRESIDENT DID
HAVE TO HAND OVER HIS TAX
RETURNS.
WE DON'T KNOW IF THEY ARE GOING
WITH THAT OR THE SUPREME COURT.
THEY MAY BE GATHERING ALL OF
THIS TOGETHER AND TAKE IT RIGHT
TO THE SUPREME COURT.
I EXPECT TO HEAR FROM THE
PRESIDENT'S ATTORNEY JAY
SEKULOW IN A FEW MINUTES AFTER
HE GOES THROUGH THE RATHER
LENGTHY DECISION.
THE BOTTOM LINE HERE.
THE SECOND CIRCUIT COURT OF
APPEALS UPHOLDING A FEDERAL
DISTRICT COURT JUDGE IN
MANHATTAN'S OPINION THAT THE
PRESIDENT'S ACCOUNTING FIRM HAS
TO TURN OVER THOSE EIGHT YEARS
OF TAX RETURNS TO THE MANHATTAN
DISTRICT ATTORNEY FOR
INVESTIGATIVE PURPOSES.
WE SHOULD POINT OUT THIS MEANS
THAT THOSE TAX RETURNS COULD BE
USED TO DEVELOP INVESTIGATIONS.
THEY CAN'T MAKE THEM PUBLIC AT
LEAST NOT YET.
MAYBE IF THEY DO DEVELOP SOME
SORT OF INVESTIGATIVE MATERIAL
THAT LEADS TO A SUBPOENA OR
INDICTMENT THEN SOME OF THAT
INFORMATION MAY COME OUT.
WE'RE STILL A LONG WAY FROM
THAT.
