Ginsburg stays order demanding banks turn over Trump financial records

Lawyers for the president had asked the Supreme Court to block subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Capital One for the president’s financial records. Ginsburg granted their request for a stay, but it expires in one week barring further action from the court.

In the emergency application to the high court, Trump requested a hold be placed on a ruling by a lower court requiring the two banks to hand over his information to the Democratic-controlled House Intelligence and Financial Services committees.

The request came three days after the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that it would not block the congressional subpoenas for Trump’s financial records from Deutsche Bank and Capital One, affirming a lower court ruling and dealing the president a significant legal blow.
