The US Supreme court has extended its ruling on a lower court ruling that Donald Trump’s accounting firm had to turn over its financial documents to a House Committee.
The decision will remain in effect until the Supreme Court decides whether to hear Trump’s appeal of the lower court’s decision.
President Trump may until December 5 to appeal. However, it is not known whether it will be considered and what the verdict may be.
