Congress can seek eight years of Trump ’ s tax records , appeals court rules. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit let stand an earlier ruling against the president that affirmed Congress ’s investigative authority on a day when the House was holding its first public impeachment inquiry

WASHINGTON — President Trump ’ s accounting firm must comply with a House committee’s demands for eight years of his financial records , a federal appeals court panel ruled on Friday in a major victory for House Democrats in their struggle against his vow to stonewall “all” of their oversight

The D.C. Circuit case centers on a House Oversight Committee subpoena from March for the president’s accounting firm records — issued months before the beginning of its impeachment inquiry, related to Trump’s alleged efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden.

Therequest for information followed testimony from Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen that Trump had exaggerated his wealth when he sought loans. Lawmakers are investigating potential conflicts of interest, including the accuracy of the president’s financial disclosures.

A divided three-judge panel of the court held in October that the House had issued its subpoena for “legitimate legislative pursuits, not an impermissible law-enforcement purpose,” as the president’s lawyers had argued.

“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,” wrote Judge David S. Tatel, who was joined by Judge Patricia A. Millett. Both were nominated by Democratic presidents.

The dissenting judge, Neomi Rao — nominated by President Trump — said if the House wants to investigate possible wrongdoing by the president, it should use its constitutional impeachment powers, notoversight powers.

“Allowing the Committee to issue this subpoena for legislative purposes would turn Congress into a roving inquisition over a co-equal branch of government,” Rao wrote in a dissent longer than the majority opinion.

The House subsequently passed a resolution affirming its impeachment inquiry.

Manhattan DA asks Supreme Court to let them enforce subpoena for Trump tax returns .
The Manhattan district attorney's office asked the Supreme Court to reject President Trump's effort to shield his tax returns from a grand jury subpoena, in a case where the president's lawyers have argued that he is immune to any criminal investigation or prosecution.A federal appeals court had ruled that Trump's accounting firm must hand over eight years of tax returns and other financial records and the president last week appealed that decision. The district attorney's office argued in a brief filed Thursday that the appellate ruling was narrowly focused to the facts of the case and does not merit a review from the nation's highest court.
