The Supreme Court has issued a temporary stay of an appeals court ruling that granted House Democrats access to President Trump's financial records, Chief Justice John Roberts announced Monday.
Trump's lawyers had appealed the ruling, which was set to go into effect Wednesday.
The subpoena from the House Oversight and Reform Committee will be unenforceable while the Supreme Court decides whether to take up the case or prolong Roberts's administrative stay. The panel is seeking eight years of Trump's financial records from his accounting firm.
Trump's lawyers argue that the committee has no legitimate purpose in seeking the documents.
