President Donald Trump’s battle to stop the release of his financial records to House Democrats is on the fast track after a three-judge appellate panel agreed Thursday to hear arguments in July.

In a two-page order posted by Politico, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals’ judges scheduled arguments July 12 in the case that pits the president’s lawyers against House Democrats who subpoenaed the accounting firm Mazars USA for eight years of Trump’s financial records.

The court also set a series of deadlines spanning June and July for parties to submit filings arguing their positions in the case, The Hill reported.

In the next round of the legal rumble, Trump will go before a panel of judges that includes Obama appointee, Patricia Millett, as well as David Tatel, a Bill Clinton appointee, and Neomi Rao, who joined the D.C. Circuit in March as a Trump appointee, Politico reported. District Judge Amit Mehta, another Obama appointee, ruled in a D.C. court earlier this week to uphold the subpoena to Mazars.

The president took a hit in federal court in New York, however, when a judge on Wednesday night rejected his attempt to halt subpoenas issued to Deutsche Bank and Capital One for the president’s financial records.

The Democrat-majority House Oversight panel’s focus has been trying to corroborate claims made by Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, who earlier this year gave the committee documents purporting to show Trump artificially inflated and deflated the value of his assets for his personal financial benefit.
