The Second Circuit Court of Appeals has ordered Deutsche Bank and Capital One to comply with a congressional subpoena to deliver the financial records of President Trump, his children, and his company.

The subpoenas come from the House Intelligence and Financial Services committees as part of their investigation into foreign influence in the 2016 election. In August, a New York district judge declined to block the subpoenas.

Now that a federal appeals court has upheld the decision, Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow says he plans to take it higher:

"We believe the subpoena is invalid as issued. In light of the Second Circuit decision, we are evaluating our next options including seeking review at the Supreme Court of the United States."
