Congress can seek eight years of President Trumpís business records from his accounting firm, a federal appeals court in Washington ruled Friday in one of several legal battles over access to the presidentís financial data.

In a 2-to-1 ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit upheld Congressís broad investigative powers and rejected the presidentís bid to block lawmakers from subpoenaing the documents.

That three-judge panelís ruling is a significant victory for the Democratic-led House, but it will not result in the House obtaining Trumpís tax returns ó at least, not immediately.

The House agreed to hold off on enforcing the subpoenas while Trumpís appeal is pending. Trump could keep it pending for weeks or months by appealing the case to the full D.C. Circuit.

Sorry for misfire.
