Appeals court rules against Trump on subpoenas for financial materials

Deutsche Bank in Berlin Germany

The House of Representatives can enforce subpoenas seeking eight years of President Trump's financial records, an appeals court ruled Monday.

The Democratic-controlled House Intelligence and Financial Services committees issued the subpoenas in April as part of investigations into alleged foreign influence in USA elections.

The material sought by the committees include records of accounts, transactions and investments linked to Trump, his three oldest children, their immediate family members and several Trump Organization entities.

Trump also is due to file by Thursday his appeal of a court ruling in Washington directing Mazars to turn over his financial records to the House Oversight Committee.

Circuit Judge Jon Newman in the opinion stated that: "the interests of Congress in pursuing the investigations for which the challenged subpoenas were issued substantially "overbalance" the privacy interests invaded by disclosure of financial documents", describing the public need for the congressional investigation as "of the highest order".

Jay Sekulow, Trump's personal lawyer, said in a statement that an appeal to the Supreme Court was under consideration. Newman was joined in the ruling by Judge Peter Hall, a Bush appointee.

Trump broke with a presidential norm during the 2016 contest by refusing to release his tax returns as most presidents have done since the 1970s even though it is not required by law.

The Denver Broncos got off to a hot start in this one with rookie Drew Lock making his first career start. However, these numbers pale in comparison to what he was able to do in previous years.

The split decision from the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals is another setback for the White House.

The court noted that the president had not disputed that the bank loaned him at least $130 million when no other bank would do so. If tax returns of Trump himself were held by the bank, then the information might be legally held back, but the bank said on August 27 the returns it has don't include the president's.

The appellate judges in the ruling wrote that a lower court must determine how to disclose the information without revealing personal information. Trump's attorneys had argued that the committees are pushing the boundaries of their powers to embarrass the president and that their subpoenas serve no legislative goal.

The third judge on the 2nd Circuit panel, Debra Ann Livingston, issued a separate opinion in which she dissented in part.

The Financial Services Committee subpoenaed Virginia-based Capital One, seeking records related to the Trump Organization's hotel business.

A federal appeals court has upheld a congressional request seeking almost 10 years of financial records from President Trump, members of his family and his businesses.

The trove of financial documents held by Deutsche Bank could give House Democrats a detailed road map for more than a decade of Trump's financial history, including whom he did business with and the sources of his wealth.
