Court hears appeal in Trump bank subpoenas case

NEW YORK (AP) — A federal appeals court in New York indicated it will take a hard look at the legality of congressional subpoenas seeking President Donald Trump’s banking records.

Three judges on the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel peppered lawyers for the president and Congress for about 90 minutes during a hearing Friday.

The House Financial Services and Intelligence committees had asked Deutsche Bank and Capital One to turn over records related to Trump’s business ventures as they investigate “foreign influence in the U.S. political process.”

Trump is challenging the subpoenas along with three of his children.

One judge said the case seems be the first of its kind.

A lower court judge ruled earlier this year that the subpoenas were legitimate.
