The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an offer by the Democratically controlled House of Representatives on Monday to speed up its attempt to subpoena President Donald Trump's financial records.
The short order means that the case will not be returned to the lower courts until 25 days after the court's decision of July 9, after which a further analysis of the validity of the subpoenas was required.
The liberal judiciary Sonia Sotomayor would have granted the request.
The House Committees have issued subpoenas requesting Trump's financial documents from Mazars LLP, Deutsche Bank and Capital One.
In an accompanying decision on July 9, the court said a New York prosecutor could request access to Trump-related documents from Mazars, Trump's accountants. Last week, the Supreme Court made an application to speed up the case.
