The House Democrats have been told by a federal judge in Washington to wait in line in their push fast-track a lawsuit demanding President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden wrote that it was a complicated matter, adding there are only a “narrow set of cases” that require urgency, according to Reuters.

In July, the Treasury Department and the IRS were sued by The House Ways and Means Committee, which was an attempt to access Trump’s tax returns.

Trump has continuously declined to release his tax returns and wants to block two House committees from getting the records.

Trump has referred to the request for his tax returns as unlawful.

The panel did not indicate the justification for the lawsuit but said it had “multiple oversights and legislative purposes” for seeking to obtain the material.

This includes assessing the IRS’s own evaluation of Trump’s compliance with U.S. tax law.

According to a June memo, the White House Office of Legal Counsel declared that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin did not have to provide the tax documents to the panel, because Neal could make them public.

The document read:

“Allowing a congressional committee to dictate when Treasury must keep tax information confidential and when it must disclose such information would impermissibly intrude on executive power."

In July, New York's Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law allowing lawmakers to obtain Trump’s state tax returns.

The move has been characterized as a "workaround" for anti-Trump Congress after efforts by House Democrats to get the president's federal returns have failed.

With an exception for law enforcement, state tax returns previously had to remain private.

The new bill adds an exception, dictating the state’s Commissioner of the Department of Taxation and Finance has to turn over information if requested by the head of the House Ways and Means Committee, Senate Finance Committee, or Joint Committee on Taxation.
