President Donald Trump scored a win — a temporary one at least — on Friday against investigations from House Democrats after a federal judge halted Democrats’ subpoenas of the Trump Organization’s financial records.
“Judge Emmet Sullivan made the decision Friday shortly after the appeals court above him said it wanted to hear the emoluments case,” CNN reported. “The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said Friday it should hear the case, about the emoluments clause of the Constitution, before the Democrats collect evidence.
But the court isn’t ready to hear the case just yet. The panel of three judges directed the Justice Department and the lower court on Friday to take more legal steps, because of legal technicalities, before it will hear the case.”
