A federal judge has tossed out a portion of President Donald Trump’s lawsuit which attempts to block a ruling ordering his tax returned to be released. The Washington, D.C. judge, according to MSNBC, says he does not have jurisdiction to rule in the case, given that the lawsuit pertains to officials in New York State.


The judge who blocked Trump’s attempt was appointed by President Trump himself, CNN reports.

The President is attempting to stop House Democrats from obtaining his tax returns and financial records.
