Federal appeals court turns down Trump’s attempt to block Democrats from getting his tax returns | Daily Mail Online

President Donald Trump lost a key round Friday in the legal fight over whether members of Congress can get access to his personal and corporate tax returns.In a 2-1 ruling, judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said House Democrats can enforce a subpoena for the documents. The ruling upholds a lower court’s decision, leaving the president’s attorneys with few ways to block his accountants, Mazars LLP, from complying with the House Oversight Committee’s demands.Trump could ask for a new decision from the full D.C. Circuit appeals court. That typical next step would leave him with only the U.S. Supreme Court as a last resort if he loses again.
