President Trump said on Monday he will appeal Judge Mehta’s decision to uphold a Democrat subpoena seeking his financial records from his former accounting Mazars USA.
Trump blasted the decision as a “ridiculous” ruling by “an Obama-appointed judge,” reported The Hill.
“Well we disagree with that ruling. It’s crazy because if you look at it, this never happened to any other president. They’re trying to get a re-do. They’re trying to get what we used to call in school a do-over. If you look, we had no collusion, we had no obstruction, we had no nothing.” Trump said to reporters. “The Democrats were very upset with the Mueller report, as perhaps they should be. But the country was very happy about it. There was never anything like that. And they’re trying to get a redo or a do-over, and you can’t do that. As far as the financials are concerned, we think it’s totally the wrong decision by obviously an Obama-appointed judge. He is a recent Obama-appointed judge.”
“We will appeal it,” Trump said.
U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta upheld a congressional subpoena seeking President Trump’s financial data from his former accounting firm Mazars USA.
Mehta’s ruling means Mazars must comply with a subpoena issued by House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings for eight years of Trump’s financial records.
Judge Mehta pushed back on Trump’s lawyer’s argument that Congress has no authority to investigate whether Trump broke the law before he became president.
Last month, the Democrat-controlled House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings, subpoenaed President Trump’s financial information from Mazars, an accounting firm that once prepared Trump’s financial statements.
Cummings based his subpoena on testimony given from Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, who has been convicted of lying to Congress.
President Trump and the Trump Organization filed a lawsuit last month against Cummings to block a subpoena seeking the President’s financial information.
The Democrats are out of control with their Stalinesque investigations into Trump, his family and his business dealings and the corrupt Obama judges are helping them harass the President.
