(Worthy News) - House Democrats can demand eight years of President Trump’s tax returns, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday in a decision that sets up a fierce legal battle before the U.S. Supreme Court.
In a terse, one-page decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit upheld an earlier ruling by the same court, denying Mr. Trump’s request for a rehearing by the entire panel.
The decision Wednesday was issued by the court en banc, meaning all of the judges weighed in. It affirmed last month’s 2-1 decision that rejected Mr. Trump’s bid to block the committee from subpoenaing eight years worth of financial records from his accounting firm Mazars USA.
