Court sympathetic to House in records fight with Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal appeals court seems inclined to side with a House committee seeking some of President Donald Trump’s financial records of as part of an investigation.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit heard more than two hours of arguments in the case Friday, but the judges gave no indication when they would rule. It seemed that at least two of the judges were inclined to side with the Democratic-led House Committee on Oversight and Reform, which is seeking the records.

The committee in April issued a subpoena for records from Mazars USA. It has provided accounting services to Trump. A lower court previously ordered the records turned over, but Trump called the decision “crazy” and his lawyers appealed.
