Appeals Court: Deutsche Bank Must Turn Over Trump Financial Records to Democrats

The subpoenas were issued months before House Democrats began an inquiry in September into whether there were grounds to impeach Trump over his request to Ukraine to investigate Democratic political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that banking institutions must comply with a House Democrat-issued subpoena for President Donald Trump's financial records. Trump has argued that the subpoenas overreach and are politically motivated.

The Democratic-controlled House Intelligence and Financial Services committees issued the subpoenas in April as part of investigations into alleged foreign influence in US elections. Lawmakers have said the requests are part of a wider investigation into money laundering and foreign influence over US politics.

If the subpoena is enforced and the documents are produced, the records could illuminate the president's business history and personal wealth.

House Democrats, now in the midst of an impeachment inquiry against the president, hope the extensive financial records detail Trump's income, partners, business deals and any potential ties to foreign governments or illegal activity, according to the Times. The panel said that congressional investigations "substantially "overbalance" the privacy interests invaded by disclosure of financial documents".

Trump has sought to keep his financial and tax records private.

Robert Pattinson unsure if Batman is a superhero
In an earlier interview to The New York Times, Pattinson had said, "Batman's not a hero, though". He's not the golden boy, unlike nearly every other comic-book character'.

Trump, who is fighting attempts by Democrats and a NY prosecutor to force him to release eight years of tax returns, sued to stop the banks from complying. The committees could object to those potential exclusions, the court ruled.

Trump broke with a presidential norm during the 2016 contest by refusing to release his tax returns as most presidents have done since the 1970s even though it is not required by law. The Supreme Court last week put the lower court ruling on hold to give Trump time to appeal.

Deutsche Bank declined to comment.

"A court ruling against him, if upheld by the Supreme Court, would be a major turning point", Mimi Rocah, a former federal prosecutor in Manhattan and critic of the president, said in an interview before the ruling.
