A federal judge in Washington appeared reluctant Wednesday to dismiss a House lawsuit seeking President Donald Trump’s tax returns, saying he was skeptical of the Justice Department’s arguments that courts lack jurisdiction to resolve disputes between Congress and the president.

U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden of the District of Columbia said there is a “strong line of cases suggesting the House would have standing to bring this type of case.” McFadden, a former Baker McKenzie partner who joined the trial bench in 2017, said he believed he “probably” does have jurisdiction over the interbranch dispute.
