Pelosi Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Congressional Oversight
JULY 9, 2020
Washington, D.C – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the consolidated cases of Trump v. Mazars and Trump v. Deutsche Bank, in which the Court asked the lower courts to further develop the record to assess the House’s need for the President’s financial records:
“A careful reading of the Supreme Court rulings related to the President’s financial records is not good news for President Trump.
“The Court has reaffirmed the Congress’s authority to conduct oversight on behalf of the American people, as it asks for further information from the Congress. Congress’s constitutional responsibility to uncover the truth continues, specifically related to the President’s Russia connection that he is hiding.
“The Congress will continue to conduct oversight For The People, upholding the separation of powers that is the genius of our Constitution. We will continue to press our case in the lower courts.”
