Law & Crime reports:
President Donald Trump‘s attorneys filed a memorandum of law on Friday in an effort to block Deutsche Bank and Capital One from complying with subpoenas from the House of Representatives ahead of a May 6 deadline. Attorneys moved for a preliminary injunction to block the “outrageously broad” subpoenas.
They noted that the subpoenas demand, “among other things, records of every single checking-account withdrawal, credit-card swipe, or debit-card purchase—no matter how trivial or small—made by each and every member of the Trump family.” They argued that this was an “outrageously broad” demand.
They also argued that the plaintiffs (Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust, the Trump Organization, inc., the Trump Organization, LLC etc.) “face ‘irreparable harm’ and have a ‘likelihood of success on the merits.’”
