President Donald Trump’s attorneys have come to an agreement with the House Intelligence and Financial Services Committee. The agreement has the Democrat controlled committee agreeing to not enforce the subpoenas to get the president’s financial records from Deutsche Bank and Capital One for now, CNN reported.

“The parties have reached an agreement regarding compliance with and enforcement of the subpoenas during the pendency of Plaintiff’s appeal,” the document that was submitted to the court read.

Earlier this week, Judge Edgardo Ramos in New York had refused to block the subpoenas, setting off a one-week clock for the Trump team to find a way to prevent extensive financial information from being released. The agreement blocks the subpoenas for now until an appeals court can weigh in.

A federal judge in New York dealt Democrats a blow in a case in which they want to access President Donald Trump’s financial records.

“If this was an ordinary civil case, I would send you guys into a room … until you came out with a reasonable subpoena,” Judge Edgardo Ramos said.

The Southern District of New York judge gave Trump a minor victory when he told the Democrats that their subpoena was too broad but he still sided with the Democrats, Law & Crime reported.

U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of New York Edgardo Ramos on Wednesday ruled that President Donald Trump can’t block the congressional subpoena issued to Deutsche Bank, agreeing with his D.C. colleague’s rationale in the Mazars USA case. Trump, of course, sued both Mazars USA (his accountant) and Deutsche Bank after House Democrats demanded that these entities hand over documents related to Trump’s finances…

Douglas Letter, general counsel for the House of Representatives, argued that it’s about time the American people find out of its president or the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner are beholden to foreign interests and entities.

Notably, Deutsche Bank reps were offered an opportunity to comment, but they opted to sit on the sidelines.

Attorney Richard Roth, founder at partner at the Roth Law Firm, PLLC, previously told Law&Crime why he thinks Deutsche Bank is taking this path.

“While typically a bank does stand behind its customer, there are two reasons why Deutsche Bank is staying silent. The first, and less obvious, is that when a motion is made to quash (or deny) the subpoena, banks generally sit back to allow the parties to fight and await the result,” he said.

“But in this instance, the issues are more serious. Essentially, we have a very public dispute between the legislative and executive branches of government, which no bank wants to takes side in,” he said.

      I totally agree we have the standing and the right to see every single piece of financial documents and tax returns from every democrat and republican that are calling for the Presidents. They have no right to see any personal information from anyone unless they are sentenced with crimes and headed to prison. Trump and his family are not criminals and this is all about getting him out of office and stop him from 2020 election. Any idiot can see this. These corrupt criminals need to be arrested for treason against our POTUS. This is corruption and collusion and treason. Lock them all up and show us theirs.

        Sedition and treason are two different subjects. SEDITION. Conduct which is directed against a government and which tends toward insurrection but does not amount to treason. Treasonous conduct consists of levying war against the United States or of adhering to its enemies, giving them aid and comfort. But they cannot be removed from office unless they it’s a formal vote. They need to be voted out of office and we know how dishonest and corrupt they are to stay in office. I think all voting machine should be taken offline so our votes are not stolen and we need more honest people when Soros and the dem’s start busing in illegals to the polls. Time for voter id’s which cannot be counterfeited.

      Either we have a right to privacy, or we don’t. Per se, there is no right to privacy in the Constitution, but we have the first 10 Amendments, which are Unalienable.

      I totally agreed with you Rae. I pretty sure I know a couple of the ways they get rich but I would love to see their tax returns because we could learn how to stop them from now on. We need to make sure we all show up to vote in 2020. I have a feeling the democrats have been working behind the scenes to get all these illegals ready to vote next year. If that’s the case we are in trouble.

      I would love for him to subpoena Pelosi’s with all the loans her husband took out while she was connected with the banks in congress. Waters and her husband are both crooks. If you haven’t read Secret Empires, you’re missing all the dirt on everyone’s sons and daughters as well as their wives getting filthy rick while mommy or daddy Biden, were in high places in our government.

    why so concerned about trump and his son, they sure never got concerned about clinton and obama…maybe we should see all their banking information and the financial records of their spouses as surely this is the case of the pot calling the kettle black. I for one don’t give a hoot about trumps records

    I believe that we the people have the standing to demand to these courts to end this cherade based on treason, collusion and corruption from the democrats and some republicans. There is no crime except what they have committed against our POTUS and his family. Its beyond time that we demand this treason end. We need to see every single piece of paper with their names attached that include all taxs and financials. I want to see the millions of dollars they have collected through their bribes, threats, pay to play and all things financial. They need to pony it up.

      I agree. We should see the lobbyists who have donated to the congress, and this should include the corporations, I.e., pharmaceutical. Too, we should see the hush fund list of the congress that had sexual victims that were paid by taxpayers.

    Don’t fret, GOD is President Trump’s protector. Look at what they’ve found on Biden & Cummings so far.
    15 They dig a hole to trap others, but they will fall into it themselves. 16 They will get themselves into trouble; the violence they cause will hurt only themselves. Psalms 7:15-16

      I totally agree. God did a miracle in getting Trump elected and He will protect him from these Hyena’s trying to eat him alive in search of a crime.

    I have always said the communist a.k.a. Democrat party has very little brains as they accuse everyone else what they are massively guilty of only on steroids and their wallets being so fat when they came in and broke into Congress and now are so fat they can’t close them, leads me to believe they sold America down the drain and they should be tried for treason!

    A game of chess. They push for records………to keep Trump from releasing information about them. Trump threatens to release information about them………to keep them away from his records.

    I thought a person had the right to keep their tax records private unless there is a crime and the investigators can prove the tax returns would back up other evidence. When did this change? And wouldn’t his private banking records be the same? I am afraid these rulings are opening doors where anyone can go after citizens just because they “think” they might find a crime, or are curious.

    Hmmm

    Congress is consistent. It never fails to act illogically, and occasionally completely irrationally. One thing you can always count on with the US Congress: they will always, always act in a manor contrary to the best interests of America and the American people. And this time, the onus is ALL on the “Democrats”.

  12. DDDearborn

    May 26, 2019 at 6:39 am

    Hmmm

    The headline in this article is intentionally misleading to the point of being dishonest. Trump did not score a “legal victory”. Donald Trump, a rabid, hard line, israel first President, cut a back room deal with the rabid, hard line, israel first Democrats who have a stranglehold on the US Congress. I am sure that the main thrust of Trump’s argument was that if he go bogged down in the legal fallout that sure to follow the release of his records, he won’t have time to start a war with Iran for israel……….

    ‘Banking’ is essentially “Wall Street” as most, in some cases, 90% of these Primary dealers to the Federal Reserve their transactions are betting on Derivatives.. Bank of America example. While Wall Street has a great affinity for Democrats, which means Banks have a great affinity for the party, Dems, that will allow any aberrant Bank behavior in return for a campaign donation,,,, the President is in the best position to inquire into aberrant Bank behavior.
    No Banks want their depositors that use the Banks “Wealth Managers” to feel under scrutiny and with Banks having over a 25 to one risk rate it only requires a small percentage, as little as 5% loss in access to private funds to upset the apple cart of “Leverage”.
    Depositors operating at high levels of Wall Street betting understand where to shuffle money and it is a politically insecurity that tips investing surges, and retreats. Setting a precedence where for any reason a politician can demand records due to a political argument leads to a road risking every depositors wealth in todays Banking structures.. even Dem Cronyism isn’t worth burning down the houses of wealth.

    Maybe we should march on DC demanding that every member of both Congress and the Senate reveal all of their financial records as well! If they can TARGET one person for scrutiny why not everyone? More over how is this not the same as unmasking one American out of Millions?

    according to law, only the irs investigators and auditors enforcement division, can review trump’s tax record. by law irs personal information, is not to be used for any other purpose. it is, considered national defense top secret information. to prevent criminals and spies from obtaining information to undermine american citizens.

    Where Is, J. Edgar Hoover when you need him? He used to have information on all politicians, when they threatened anyone, he had all the, “Dope” on them, he kept all the, “Phony Crooks” in line! It may not have been right but he sure stopped all the crap that the, “Democommies” are pulling on our, President Trump!

    Truman said if you get rich a politician, you are crooked. You are going after a man that already had money. Didn´t need to steal. Doesn´t take salary.Instead of going after people that became millionaires on 179 thousand a year. 180 days , they have done nothing for the the people they represent. People see it for what it is. You ha cried Wolf!! too many times

    I am not at all supporting or opposing President or any. Why President alone? Investigate the financial deals and related asset declaration of all elected people, Reps and Senate, and high officials and bring out each case of how they began and how ended up now, and how they made assets disproportionately, in the course of so-called “Public service.” Let all be investigated instead of never-ending witch-hunt against one citizen..
