abilities it's as easy to travel to telluride as it is to vacation there with nonstop flights from eleven major hubs a federal appeals court has ruled that a US House committee can subpoena President Trump's accounting firm for his financial records subpoena issued in April seeks eight years of financial records from the president his real estate companies and other entities trump's lawyers are expected to appeal the ruling joining me now from Washington with more details is Wall Street Journal reporter Brands Kendall Brent this marks a significant victory for congressional Democrats who have been seeking these records ties broadly speaking then this came after testimony from his former lawyer Michael Cohen on Capitol Hill and which Mr Cohen said that that Mr Trump had itself and and Congress the Oversight Committee which issued the Subpoena said look you know we we are investigating president trump's business and financial to seek and demand these these kinds of documents it's worth noting the subpoena was was sent to the accounting firm a third party as opposed directly to the president or has entities attendance of color skydiving and this is yet another example of Renner management trying to turn the page on the golden era earlier this week Nissan named into the possibility of legislation and that it could it could investigate things like this under that power so Brent earlier this week we had another separate but related tell us more about the court's ruling today and what trump's accounting firm is now required a turnover well the big issue in this case was the scope of congressional powers horsemen and then they didn't have the power to investigate in that way the the appeals court today pretty soundly rejected that argument although it was divided ruling and said that this an affair with the president and so this was a grand jury subpoena issued they're seeking similar records from the accounting firm and this is within our powers to do these kinds of things and the trump legal team argued that no it's not because congress here really isn't interested in legend ruling a federal judge here in New York said the president's accounting firm same one must turn over eight years of personal and business tax returns that order is currently on hold whether and how the president is complying with disclosure laws and whether our disclosure laws are in effect working and whether they ought to be updated and they said look this is both inflated and deflated the appearance of his assets to to benefit them at different times and among the things the committee said is look you know we we need to see during appeal from trump's lawyers so how is this case related so the case from Manhattan is specifically looking at possible New York criminal for later in October and we can expect a ruling they're pretty quickly and so then we'll now have chewed appeals court rulings on the fresh air to Renault alliance with Nissan or he didn't say but what forbid is beneath all of this is that cheery borderie was closely the trump legal team sought to have the subpoena block to the judge on Monday in New York rejected that request and the second circuit violations and and part of what the DA there is looking at is alleged payments and reimbursements to adult film star Stormy Daniels who alleged she had aces over the next several months Wall Street Journal reporter Kendall joining us from Washington thank you so much Brent thank you hypoc subpoena wasn't different from types of subpoenas that Congress had sent in the past and that its

entertainment options like zip line courses petting zoos corn mazes and restaurants with ciders lessees and things like that he said that this kind of subpoena could be imported under an impeachment type investigation but that's not what this House Committee had done at the time elation and what Congress is is the lawmaking body and but that you know the the trump argument was that that's not what the committee was doing here that they were effectively trying to be like law similar issues and you know it's it's possible that one of these could go to the Supreme Court here in the next few weeks or months so overall Brentwood this in some context for us taken together Friday afternoon I'm Anne Marie for Relief for the Wall Street Journal thanks for listening today who is worth owning appointed recently by President Trump said look congress has two different kinds of powers its legislative powers in its impeachment powers and treats by the Wall Street Journal's J.
