Trump to appeal ruling on financial records

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) After a judge on Monday ruled in favor of a U.S. House of Representatives committee seeking President Donald Trump’s financial records from his accounting firm, Trump told reporters the decision was “crazy” and that it would be appealed.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta in Washington was an early setback to the Trump administration in its legal battle with Congress.

Last Tuesday Mehta heard oral arguments on whether Mazars LLP must comply with a House of Representatives Oversight Committee subpoena.

Mehta said Mazars has seven days to comply with the subpoena.

It was the first time a federal court had waded into the tussle about how far Congress can go in probing Trump and his business affairs.

Trump is refusing to cooperate with a series of investigations on issues ranging from his tax returns and policy decisions to his Washington hotel and his children’s security clearances.
