WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday said he disagreed with a federal judge who ruled against his attempt to block a House of Representatives committee from seeking his financial records and told reporters he would appeal the decision.

Lawyers for Trump and his company had argued the House Oversight Committee’s demand for financial records from his accounting firm exceeded Congress’s constitutional limits.

U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta also denied Trump’s request to stay his decision pending an appeal.

“It is simply not fathomable that a Constitution that grants Congress the power to remove a President for reasons including criminal behavior would deny Congress the power to investigate him for unlawful conduct—past or present—even without formally opening an impeachment inquiry,” Mehta wrote. “Congress plainly views itself as having sweeping authority to investigate illegal conduct of a President, before and after taking office. This court is not prepared to roll back the tide of history.”

  1. I agree that it must be a Democratic judge. It is wrong for them to demand anything from him prior to his being President. I also feel if he has to turn in his taxes so does everyone else. I would wager most of the Democrats would be in prison for falsifying taxes.

  2. By the sound of this Judges name he must be a muslim liberal put in by OBUMMER but whether or not he or she is This is against Trumps constitutional rights , the congress has no right to financial records number one and what is this going to prove number 2? People for Trump could care less about his financials. We care about how the man is doing as President and we are also concerned about the liberties the congress is taking into his personal affairs. this is abuse of power in my eyes!
