"During an hour of oral arguments, Patrick Strawbridge, the lead attorney for the president's team, said the subpoenas went beyond Congress' authority and were seeking "exposure expressly for the sake of exposure." Ramos found that argument "unpersuasive," and said the subpoenas were issued for a "legitimate legislative purpose," citing an anti-money laundering bill introduced in the House earlier this year.
Douglas Neal Letter, the lead attorney for the House, said concerns that the records would immediately leak if turned over to the committees were unfounded. He said lawmakers could eventually vote to make them public, but that congressional committees "don't just willy-nilly disclose things."
In a brief moment of levity, Ramos asked Letter, "How far can I go with giving leeway to Congress?" Letter cited Supreme Court precedent to argue the subpoenas fell clearly within Congress' investigative authority, to which Ramos replied, "Well, then, what am I even doing here?"
