(Worthy News) - A federal judge on Tuesday stayed House Democrats’ lawsuit over their efforts to obtain President Trump’s tax returns from the IRS until a court decision is issued in a separate case.
Judge Trevor McFadden, a judge in the federal district court in D.C. appointed by Trump, said he won’t issue a ruling in the tax return case until the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issues a ruling in a case where House Democrats are seeking to enforce a subpoena against former White House Counsel Don McGahn.
McFadden’s announcement of a stay in the tax-return case came after he held a telephone conference with the lawyers involved in the case Tuesday afternoon. A notice about the teleconference appeared on the docket for the case only minutes before the call’s start time. McFadden’s reasons for issuing the stay weren’t immediately clear.
