Washington, Nov 14 : A US court has ruled against President Donald Trump's appeal upholding an earlier ruling that affirmed Congress' investigative authority to seek the President's eight years of financial records.
The latest ruling was the response to Trump's appeal seeking a full-court rehearing of the 2-1 vote cast by the court's three judges last month to reject the president's request to prevent lawmakers from subpoenaing Mazars USA, the accounting firm.
"In light of the well-reasoned dissent, we will seek review at the Supreme Court," Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow said in a statement.
The D.C. Circuit has previously said that Trump's lawyers will have seven days to ask the Supreme Court to intervene in the case, during which the court would put any ruling against the president on hold.
