WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
LET’S MAKE A DEAL – New York state officials are barred, for now, from releasing President Trump’s state tax returns to House Democrats under an agreement, announced late Thursday, in DC federal court. C. Ryan Barber reports that the deal essentially gives U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols—a former Wilmer Hale partner who joined the bench just a few weeks ago—a bit of time to sort out jurisdictional issues before New York could release the returns and potentially render Trump’s lawsuit moot. Trump’s suit, brought by William Consovoy, confronts New York’s “Trust Act,” which opened a door for Congress to get Trump’s returns. House Dems, though, haven’t made such a request. The case is one of several pending actions that confront the secrecy of Trump’s financial records.
