Acting Chairwoman Maloney Issues Statement on Appeals Court Ruling Rejecting President Trump’s Rehearing Request in Mazars Case
Washington, D.C. (Nov. 14, 2019)—Today, Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, the Acting Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, issued the following statement in response to an appeals court ruling denying President Trump a rehearing in a case for his financial records:
"This is another victory for the fundamental principles of the rule of law and separation of powers. Congress has a constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the executive branch, and no one is above the law—not the President, and certainly not his private companies. It has now been seven months since the Oversight Committee asked for these records. It is time for the President to let us do our job and stop blocking Mazars from complying with the Committee’s lawful subpoena."
