Trump Wins Round in Bid to Curb Congressional Subpoena of Accountants

  • Court ruling is a win for Trump, who sought to re-argue case
  • Democrats seek financial records from Trump’s accounting firm

A federal appeals court in Washington agreed with President Donald Trump that a lower court should decide whether Democrats in Congress must narrow their subpoena to his accounting firm for his financial records.

Trump argued that the case over documents held by Mazars USA LLP should be remanded to a district judge after the U.S. Supreme Court altered the standards for such subpoenas, while the House Oversight Committee urged the appeals court to rule on its own.
