The Supreme Court announced Monday evening that the president's accounting firm does not have to provide tax returns sought by the House Democrats – now issuing a temporary injunction.
The chief judge allowed the Trump administration to put the House administration on the records until the president submits his appeal to the court by December 5.
If the court agrees to hear the case, the injunction will remain in place which prevents the Home Democrats from placing their hands on the documents for their investigator. But if the court refuses to hear the president's challenge, the injunction will expire and the documents may be turned.
“The application for stay with the mandate presented to the Chief Justice and submitted to the Court is granted,” read the order.
The President's legal team is protesting against the rule of the lower court, alongside the House Oversight and Reform Committee, which issued a subpoena in February for eight years of the President's tax returns in a convincing Home Democrats inquiry.
They specifically sought financial records dating back to 2011 from Mazars USA LLP, the accounting body for the president.
Mr Trump's lawyers said that the decision of the appeals court was necessary so that the judges could review a case of the first impression, warning against the implications of the lower court movement if Mr Trump had to turn his personal financial records on this occasion. .
“The revival of drafting dirt on political competitors means that the normal development in the personal life of the presidents is our new ordinary in the time of shared government – irrespective of the party in power. If each committee chair has this unlimited authority, that court should be the person he said, ”Mr Trump's lawyers said in court papers.
The records sought by the House Democrats were to ascertain whether the president had breached any financial campaigning laws.
The candidate came after Mr Trump's former personal solicitor, Michael Cohen, the porn star, Stormy Daniels and the former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, gave money to get silence during the 2016 presidential campaign, without arriving. with signatures dealing with alleged matters with the President going back to 2006.
