New York Southern District Court Judge Edgardo Ramos agreed to pause the House subpoenas of President Donald Trump’s financial records while the President’s team files an expedited appeal, according to the Washington Post.

The request was made jointly by Trump’s lawyers and attorneys for the House committees.

Ramos has also rejected team Trump’s request for a preliminary injunction after his lawyers argued that the records would breach the President’s privacy. The judge said that Trump and his family “are unlikely to succeed on merits of their claims.”

Earlier in May, a different judge shot down team Trump’s effort to block a House committee’s attempt to obtain records from Trump’s accounting firm.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
