Trump Sues To Block Subpoena On Business Financials

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump and his business on Monday sued House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) in a bid to block a congressional subpoena of his financial records.

The lawsuit seeks a court order to prevent Trump’s accounting firm from complying with what his lawyers say is an improper use of subpoena power by congressional Democrats.

“Democrats are singularly obsessed with finding something they can use to damage the President politically,” the filing by Trump claims. Last week, Cummings subpoenaed Mazars, an accounting firm used by Trump.
