President Trump has been granted a temporary victory in his effort to stop his financial records from being gained from House Democrats by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
Ginsberg on Friday temporarily blocked a subpoena for President Trump’s financial records issued by a lower court, a report said.
The stay granted by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg will hold the release of President Trump’s records held by Deutsche Bank AG and Capital One Financial Corp until at least Dec. 13, CNBC reported.
The 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled earlier this week that the banks will have to comply with a subpoena issued by House Democrats and turn over the records to the chamber.
The stay issued by Ginsberg on Friday will now go under full review by the Supreme Court. Ginsberg’s decision does not mean the finance records will be permanently hidden from House investigators.
The records requested by the Democrats deal with Trump’s investments and other business transactions by the president and members of his family.
Yet another case involving House subpoenas for President Trump’s records from New York banks also is headed for the Supreme Court, and the justices are likely to prevent the handover of any documents for the time being.
The two court cases involving House subpoenas are separate from the ongoing impeachment inquiry.
