Former President Donald Trump must hand over financial records to a Congressional committee investigating his potential conflicts of interests. 

A Washington appeals court ruled Friday that the House Oversight Committee can obtain among other things documents related to payments made by government officials to Trump hotels, accounting records and information related to a hotel in the Old Post Office building that Trump leased from the US federal government. While upholding the subpoena, the panel narrowed the time period and types of documents that the committee had sought.
