Trump appeals ruling allowing banks to hand his financial records to Congress

Source: Reuters

NEW YORK - U.S. President Donald Trump, three of his children and the Trump Organization on Friday appealed a court order allowing Deutsche Bank AG and Capital One Financial Corp to hand their financial records over to Democratic lawmakers.

They are asking the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan to overrule U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos, who on Wednesday refused to block the banks from responding to subpoenas issued last month by two U.S. House of Representatives committees.

Deutsche Bank, Capital One, the House Financial Services Committee and House Intelligence Committee did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The committees have agreed not to enforce the subpoenas for seven days after Wednesday's ruling.

2. Well this seems pretty friggin' annoying ...

"The committees have agreed not to enforce the subpoenas for seven days after Wednesday's ruling."

WHY THE HELL NOT?

Without stays granted from the Judge for possible (lol) appeals, the Committee should be grabbing EVERYTHING as quickly as possible if you ask me.

Didn't we read yesterday that a couple institutions had already sent the requested docs?

GRAB THAT SHIT, NOW. If you have to give it back later, so be it.

IMHO

4. Exactly! Why would anyone do otherwise? One further thing...

 

I agree 100% with your post, mr_lebowski, with one addition (bolded):

"The committees have agreed not to enforce the subpoenas for seven days after Wednesday's ruling."

WHY THE HELL NOT?

Without stays granted from the Judge for possible (lol) appeals, the Committee should be grabbing EVERYTHING as quickly as possible if you ask me.

Didn't we read yesterday that a couple institutions had already sent the requested docs?

GRAB THAT SHIT, NOW. If you have to give it back later (after making multiple digital and physical copies), so be it.

8. Because the committees need to seem like the reasonable party in court

This makes good, strategical, sense. If they allow the Trump this time to try to appeal, then when they get to SCOTUS they can prove they have made every effort to be reasonable and work with Trump's team to find a path to cooperation without the court having to get involved.

This will make any arguments to higher courts easier for the committees. They won't have appeared to be bratty toddlers like Trump.

They are doing the right thing in letting him exhaust all arguments at the lower courts. That way, the higher courts won't have any reason to remand the case back to the lower courts for further consideration. A little bit of time NOW can save a lot of time later.
