DOJ Asks Court To Block Trump’s Banking Records

Law & Crime reports:

The Department of Justice on Monday filed an amicus curiae brief on behalf of President Donald Trump, in which attorneys for the government argued that congressional subpoenas for the financial records of Trump, his family, and the Trump Organization should not be enforced.

U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos previously ruled that Deutsche Bank and Capital One could turn over the financial documents requested by the House Financial Services and Intelligence committees.

In the brief, DOJ attorneys argued that the congressional subpoenas raised “significant separation of powers issues,” which could have an adverse effect on the operation of the government, particularly for the Executive Branch.
