Appeals Court Upholds Subpoena For Trump Accounting Records, Teeing Up Supreme Court Fight

Kevin Daley on October 11, 2019

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a subpoena for President Donald Trump’s accounting records Friday, potentially teeing up a landmark fight between the president and Congress in the Supreme Court.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee issued a subpoena to Mazars USA LLP after former Trump associate Michael Cohen accused the president of inflating assets and erasing liabilities on federal financial disclosures. U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta upheld the subpoena in May.

“Contrary to the president’s arguments, the committee possesses authority under both the House rules and the Constitution to issue the subpoena, and Mazars must comply,” the decision reads. Judge Neomi Rao dissented from the ruling.

House Democrats say Trump’s alleged actions raise “grave questions about potential conflicts of interest.”

The case is Trump v. Committee on Oversight and Reform of the U.S. House of Representatives.

  • The instant he announced he was running for president, he became a public figure. His refusing to release his tax returns show he's hiding something.

    If he was caught screwing a goat, you Trumpturds would still support him.

  • Who says he is hiding anything. His taxes aren't anyone elses business. Obama hid everything, and liberals didn't get all hostile over that. The only reason they have been after his tax returns is because they are hoping to come up with something, they can use to impeach him. So far they haven't done very well. Making up lies, doesn't count.

  • Trump is a liar as well. When he was running for office, he promised the release his taxes many times. Then after he was elected, he said he was under audit (not a valid excuse) and soon it was over, he would release them (2 years ago!!). What is Trump so scared of, the truth? Money laundering, Russian loans, fraud, cheating? He controls the Treasury Department (Mnuchin is one of his mob thugs) and the IRS, and he is capable of massive cheating and crime on his taxes. He knows he is finished if his taxes are released.

  • Guess what, this is and Obama appointed judge and this judge has it out for Trump......go figure!!!......and the stupid lawyer is Cohen who also has it out for Trump!!!
