Attorneys for the House are asking a judge in Washington, D.C., to lift a stay he placed on their lawsuit seeking President Donald Trump’s federal tax returns, arguing that Trump’s impeachment lawyers have contradicted Justice Department attorneys over standing issues in the case that the judge has raised concerns about.

U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden of the District of Columbia paused the case earlier this month, noting that a three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit had raised concerns over whether the House could go to court against the executive branch in the lawsuit seeking former White House counsel Don McGahn’s testimony. He said he would make a decision on how to let the tax case proceed after the appellate court panel ruled on the issue of the House’s standing, and he expected the circuit to rule “expeditiously.”
