Joint Statement from Waters and Schiff on Southern District of New York Court Ruling Washington, DC, May 22, 2019 Tags: Department of Justice , International

Following today’s ruling by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York to uphold Congressional authority to access the President’s financial records, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, and Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, released the following statement: 

“We are pleased with Judge Ramos’ decision. Congress’ authority to conduct relevant oversight has been repeatedly challenged by this Administration. The decision made in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York today is a victory for the role of Congress as a co-equal branch of government and for the important work our Committees are doing in protecting and serving the interests of the American public.” https://financialservices.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=403802

BREAKING: For the second time this week, a federal judge just ruled in favor of the House and against President Trump, who sued to stop Deutsche Bank from complying with our subpoena. Two different judges, same conclusion: Trump’s stonewalling is without merit.” (US Congressman Schiff, May 22, 2019, 5:51 pm)
