Trump Asks Supreme Court to Shield Banking Records for Now

Friday, 06 December 2019 03:22 PM

President Donald Trump and three of his children asked the Supreme Court on Friday to shield records held by Deutsche Bank and Capital One from House Democrats.

The case from New York is similar to two other cases pending before the justices, a subpoena from the House for Trump's financial records and one from the Manhattan district attorney for his tax returns.

The court already has blocked the House from getting the financial records while it considers what to do with the cases. The district attorney has agreed to hold off enforcing his subpoena until the justices act. A decision on whether to hear the cases could come by mid-December.

Trial judges and appellate panels in all three cases have ruled that the records held by the banks and Trump's accounting firm, Mazars USA, must be turned over.

The subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Capital One also seek documents pertaining to three Trump children, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump; the Trump Organization; and other Trump business holdings.

Without a Supreme Court order, the banks would have to begin turning over records to House committees next week.

The request was filed with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who oversees emergency appeals from New York.
