Federal judge sides with House Democrats over subpoena for Trumpís financial records

A Washington, D.C.-based federal judge has sided with House Oversight Committee Democrats seeking to enforce their subpoena of Trump accounting firm Mazars USA, in a major ruling that breathes new life into Democrats' ongoing efforts to probe the president's financial dealings.

The subpoena seeks access to a slew of Trump financial documents dating back to 2011, including personal records and records of various affiliated business and entities. Democrats pursued the subpoena after former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen testified to Congress in February that the president's accountants routinely and improperly altered his financial statements -- including some signed by Mazars -- to misrepresent his assets and liabilities.

Barack Obama-appointed judge Amit P. Mehta's 41-page opinion began by comparing President Trump's concerns about congressional overreach to those of President James Buchanan, asserting that Trump "has taken up the fight of his predecessor."

Utterly disgusting. Like the two year Russia hoax this is nothing but ANOTHER fishing expedition with no basis. Which is exactly what our legal system is supposed to prevent. Tyrannical Democrat appointed fake judges run this country.

Don’t know if Trump can do this, but he needs to do everything he can to withhold these records (if possible) until the supreme court rules.

Trump needs to appeal........ ...with the wicked way of the left...if they saw that personal information what would stop them from leaking the names of people Trump did business with, the left would go after them (like they did Marcy or some store) that had Ivankas products...The left would create, in my opinion, hell for suppliers,merchandisers, any people doing transactions with Trump, etc

POTUS should just ignore it.

I mean there is not one word in the US Constitution that requires a President to submit tax returns. Thus, there can be no impeachable offense as a consequence.

Nadler and his lefty judges are wasting everyone’s time.

Though the House won’t do it, Republicans need to demand the impeachment of this and other Demonicrat-corrupted judges.

The Democrats are writing the NEW RULE BOOK from this point forward on what an opposition party in control of the house can and can not do.

They are too stupid to realize once they open this door, it will in time be used against them.

If the house can demand the tax records of a sitting President, any future house can demand the tax records of any politician.

The Democrats are tuning us into a Banana Republic

Obama appointed judge= the law is whatever he says it is..

I’ve been a litigator for over 25 years. Liberal judges generally do not follow the law.

Same type of abuse happened in Wisconsin. The homes of Walker supporter were raided at the crack of dawn with SWAT teams, all to seize computer hard drives. Meanwhile a Kennedy or any lib with a felony charge against him can negotiate a peaceful surrender.

This is already being investigated by federal investigators in ny. Imho, his personal finances are personal, but they are looking at expenditures and donations regarding the inauguration. Once again, Trump is being open and transparent with documents.p

The senate should subpoena Obama’s College records to ensure proper legislative action.

You are indulging in some wishful thinking. This sort of thing only applies when Democrats do it to Republicans. When Democrats do it, there is no precedent set. Democrats will continue to ignore court rulings, congressional subpoenas etc, just as they always have. Democrats know they can do whatever they want, there are never any repercussions.
