Trump Urges Appeals Court To Block Subpoena For His Accounting Records

US President Donald Trump on Monday asked an appeals court to overturn a ruling that his accounting firm must turn over his financial records from before he was president to the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives Oversight Committee.

 

Lawyers for Trump said in a court filing that a May 20 decision by US District Judge Amit Mehta ordering Mazars LLP to comply with the subpoena was flawed and should be reversed.

 

Mehta’s ruling was the first time a federal court waded into the tussle about how far Congress can go in probing Trump and his business affairs, and marked an important victory for House Democrats.
