  • Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg temporarily blocked a lower court ruling ordering two banks to release U.S. President Donald Trump’s financial records to House Democrats.
  • The emergency filing came after a federal appeals court in New York ruled on Tuesday that Deutsche Bank and Capital One should comply with subpoenas from the House Financial Services and House Intelligence committees seeking information about Trump’s finances.
  • The House subpoenas seek documents including tax returns, evidence of suspicious activity and, in the case of Deutsche Bank, any internal communications regarding Trump and his ties to foreign individuals.
