D.C. Judge Orders Accounting Firm to Hand Over Trump Financial Docs

HeadlineMay 21, 2019

Meanwhile, D.C. District Judge Amit Mehta upheld a subpoena Monday for 10 years of Trump’s financial records from the accounting firm Mazars, issued by the House Oversight Committee. Trump’s lawyers attempted to resist the subpoena by arguing that the request is unconstitutional because it isn’t tied to legislation. Judge Mehta ruled the House panel had valid reasons for requesting the documents and that “it is not for the court to question whether the Committee’s actions are truly motivated by political considerations.” Trump’s lawyer said he would appeal the ruling.
