President Donald Trump scored another legal victory Friday when a federal judge temporarily blocked congressional Democrats’ subpoenas for financial documents related to the Trump Organization. . .
More from 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.
The case is related to lawsuit filed by the Constitutional Accountability Center on behalf of House and Senate Democrats who allege Trump is violating the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause by profiting from foreign governments while in office. . .
Sullivan’s ruling came a little more than one week after Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals made a similar ruling, blocking a lawsuit from D.C. and Maryland attorneys general that accused the president of violating the Emoluments Clause.
