New York Seeks To Dismiss Trump’s Tax Returns Lawsuit

The Hill reports:

New York officials on Thursday filed a new motion to dismiss President Trump’s legal challenge to the state’s law that allows Congress to request his New York tax returns.

In the new document, the officials argue that Trump’s amended complaint in the case doesn’t change their position that the case shouldn’t take place in Washington, D.C.

“President Trump has spent his career hiding behind lawsuits, and this one is no different,” New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) said in a statement. “The president’s latest complaint is irrelevant, unreasonable, and factually inaccurate, which is why we believe this case deserves to be dismissed or otherwise moved to a New York court.”
