The House Oversight Committee appears to finally be getting its hands on Trump’s financial statements.
It was reported that the two sides agreed on this matter on Thursday.
The scope may be a bit narrower than the Oversight Committee had hoped, but they are finally going to be able to take a peek under the hood.
A filing to the federal appellate court stated, “In light of the panel’s opinion, Plaintiffs, Mazars, and the Committee reached a settlement of this case on August 30, 2022.”
Trump’s legal team, in turn, withdrew its request for a near hearing.
Chairwoman Rep. Carolyn Malone (D.N.Y.) took a victory lap after the filing.
She stated, “After numerous court victories, I am pleased that my Committee has now reached an agreement to obtain key financial documents that former President Trump fought for years to hide from Congress.
“In April 2019, the Oversight Committee issued a lawful subpoena for financial records as part of our investigation into President Trump’s unprecedented conflicts of interest, self-dealing, and foreign financial ties.
“After facing years of delay tactics, the Committee has now reached an agreement with the former President and his accounting firm, Mazars USA, to obtain critical documents.
“These documents will inform the Committee’s efforts to get to the bottom of former President Trump’s egregious conduct and ensure that future presidents do not abuse their position of power for personal gain.”
The agreement’s details remain unknown, and Trump has not made a statement on the matter yet, so we have no idea how he views this agreement.
