Judge signals swift ruling in Trump lawsuit over Cummings subpoena
By Jacqueline Thomsen - 05/14/19 01:29 PM EDT

A federal judge on Tuesday gave lawyers for President Trump and Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee until the end of the week to make their final arguments on whether the court should uphold a subpoena requesting Trump’s private financial records.

District Judge Amit Mehta, during the first court hearing in D.C. over the subpoena issued by Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) for records from the accounting firm Mazars, said he considers the matter to be “fully exhausted” after hearing arguments from attorneys on both sides.

And he promised to quickly issue a ruling on the matter.

Attorneys for Trump and his businesses argued that the House committee had no standing to issue the subpoena, describing the request for documents as “law enforcement” and going beyond Congress’s authorities.

Elijah's coming and the cards say... a broken heart for him.
Any political party that can't cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Joe Biden deserves to die a slow death.

It won't matter how this judge rules. The ruling will be appealed.

A "swift ruling" means the lower court judge will find for the House Committee, on the basis of the wording in the statute.   It will require an appeal to an appellate court to address the argument that Congress authority is not open-ended and must be exercised in furtherance of a legitimate legislative purpose.

I agree with you, especially since the lower court Judge is an Obastard appointee.  Your last part is an appellate court part for sure.
