Various Democrat members of Congress thought they were being cute when they subpoenaed President Donald Trump’s financial records. For whatever reason, the group thought that they have a right to see them.
On Monday, President Trump made it clear that he will not willingly surrender such information without a fight. The apex predator took a page out of the Democrat playbook and filed a lawsuit.
Lawyers for President Trump on Monday sued to block a subpoena issued by members of Congress that sought the business magnate’s financial records.
The complaint named Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Democratic chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Peter Kenny, the chief investigative counsel of the House committee, as its plaintiffs.
“We will not allow Congressional Presidential harassment to go unanswered,” said Jay Sekulow, counsel to the president.
The question of why the nosy rosie Democrats actually want to see financial documents that have been audited with no wrongdoing found for years is one that begs to be asked, but will not be answered here. It appears that there is fishing expedition going on, and the Democrats will not be dissuaded.
In the suit on Monday, Trump’s lawyers ask the court to declare the subpoena “invalid and unenforceable.” It also asks for a “permanent injunction quashing Chairman Cummings’ subpoena.”
Trump’s suit also asks for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction prohibiting Mazars from producing the requested information.
In the suit, Trump’s legal team complain that the Democrats have “issued more than 100 subpoenas and requests to anyone with even the most tangential connection to the President.”
“Democrats are using their new control of congressional committees to investigate every aspect of President Trump’s personal finances, businesses, and even his family,” the suit says.
Unfortunately, the motion was assigned to an Obama appointed judge.
