WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday said he disagreed with a federal judge who ruled against his attempt to block a House of Representatives committee from seeking his financial records and told reporters he would appeal the decision.

Lawyers for Trump and his company had argued the House Oversight Committee’s demand for financial records from his accounting firm exceeded Congress’s constitutional limits.

U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta also denied Trump’s request to stay his decision pending an appeal.

“It is simply not fathomable that a Constitution that grants Congress the power to remove a President for reasons including criminal behavior would deny Congress the power to investigate him for unlawful conduct—past or present—even without formally opening an impeachment inquiry,” Mehta wrote. “Congress plainly views itself as having sweeping authority to investigate illegal conduct of a President, before and after taking office. This court is not prepared to roll back the tide of history.”

    This leaves every American vulnerable to intrusion without any criminal charge being brought against them. This does not seem Constitutional at all. I thought you had to be charged with a crime to get this kind of information. And no stay while being Appealed.

    If the Presidents records are open to review then every congressman’s records should be open for review too. I would bet they would not stand for that.
