A federal judge said he would prevent New York, at least for now, from passing President Trump's tax returns to Congressional Democrats.
Trump's attorneys are trying to prevent the state from releasing the president's tax returns and Congress from acquiring them in New York under a newly passed law.
US. District Judge Carl Nichols, a judge appointed by Trump, said Wednesday he would shortly issue a ruling that New York could argue that the matter should be heard in another court, CNN reported.
"Mr. Trump can not hurt, "Nichols said.
The judge also warned the House Ways and Means Committee attorneys that chairman Richard Neal, a Democrat, should not request Trump's financial documents until he gave his order.
New York has also announced that it will wait seven days for such a request until the jurisdiction issue is resolved.
"I continue to assume that no action will be taken to deny this until I have done so," Nichols said.
