Score another one for President Trump.

A judge ruled on Friday to temporarily block Democrats' subpoenas for financial documents concerning the Trump Organization, according to CNN

Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled right after the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals said it wanted to hear the case. According to CNN:

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.

Sullivan should now consider whether the collection of evidence is even needed for the Democrats' lawsuit, the appeals court order said.

The case relates to a lawsuit filed by the Constitutional Accountability Center on behalf of House and Senate Democrats who claim Trump violated the Constitution's Emoluments Clause by making a profit from foreign governments while in office.
