Congressional House Committee has Reached an Agreement with Trump to provide Financial Records
Carolyn Maloney states the agreement includes handing over “critical documents” that will help the panel in its investigation.
A committee of House Representatives claims they have reached an agreement with Donald Trump and Mazars, an accounting firm, to hand over his financial records.
"After numerous court victories, I am pleased that my committee has now reached an agreement to obtain key financial documents that former President Trump fought for years to hide from Congress."
Carolyn Maloney, the Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, said.
A United States appeals court largely upheld a subpoena from congress looking for Trump’s financial records as they claimed some of the requests went too far. The District of Columbia Circuit unanimously ruled that the House committee can obtain the records from a period surrounding Trump’s campaign for president as well as his time as president.
Eight years of accounting records were subpoenaed in April 2019 as part of an investigation into Trump’s “unprecedented conflicts of interest, foreign financial ties, and his self-dealing.” Maloney states the agreement includes handing over “critical documents” that will help the panel in its investigation.
