A federal judge in Washington ruled on Monday that President Donald Trump cannot block a House subpoena of his financial records.

President Trump and his business organization had sued to block the subpoena issued in April to Mazars USA, an accountant for the president and Trump Organization.

Amit Mehta, a U.S. District judge, was nominated to his position by President Barack Obama. Is it any wonder he's making this decision in an effort to throw the president under the bus?

House Oversight Committee chair Elijah Cummings’ (D-MD) announcement that he intended to subpoena President Trump’s financial records came two days after the Treasury Department missed a deadline to deliver the president’s tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee chairman.
