President Donald Trump has appealed a court ruling that ordered his accounting firm to turn over his personal financial records to the U.S. House.
A federal judge ruled Monday that Trump’s longtime accounting firm Mazars must turn over records subpoenaed by House Democrats, finding that it’s “simply not fathomable” that a Congress constitutionally authorized to remove a president does not have the power to investigate him.
Trump filed an appeal Tuesday morning with the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, which is led by Judge Merrick Garland.
