Court Rejects President's Appeal       11/14 06:45

   A federal appeals court will not take up President Donald Trump's appeal of 
a ruling that his accounting firm must turn over financial records to Congress.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- A federal appeals court will not take up President Donald 
Trump's appeal of a ruling that his accounting firm must turn over financial 
records to Congress.

   The order was handed down Wednesday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 
District of Columbia Circuit.

   It is almost certain that Trump will appeal to the Supreme Court. 

   A three-judge appellate panel rejected Trump's arguments last month after 
the president's lawyers went to court to prevent Mazars USA from turning over 
the records. But Trump petitioned for the full court to reconsider the case.

   The House Committee on Oversight and Reform subpoenaed records from Mazars 
in April.

   They include documents from 2011 to 2018 that the House wants for 
investigation into the president's reporting of his finances and potential 
conflicts of interest.
