2016 ELECTION/EMOLUMENTS: “The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled Friday that former President Donald Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars USA LLP, must turn over some financial records pertaining to the time period surrounding his 2016 election, as well as his time in the White House, to the Democrat-controlled House Oversight Committee.

The court largely upheld a congressional subpoena for the records, meaning the committee can now obtain documents related to allegations that Trump may have broken the Constitution’s ’emoluments’ clause, which would have prevented him from accepting payments from foreign governments without approval from Congress, or violated other financial disclosure laws.”
