Attorneys for President Donald Trump asked the Supreme Court to hear arguments in a case over whether his longtime accounting firm will be required to turn over his financial records to Congress, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow said.
The request, which was made in a filing known as a petition, comes after the top court late last month halted a ruling from the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., which would have required the firm, Mazars USA, to turn over the records, which cover nearly a decade of the president’s personal and business dealings.
UPDATE: President Trump has asked the US Supreme Court to void a subpoena from the House that seeks the president’s financial records from his accounting firm. https://t.co/JfOmR4StFl
