(Washington Examiner) President Trump sued two banks on Monday to stop them from complying with subpoenas sent from the Democrat-led House Intelligence and Financial Services committees.
The federal lawsuit was filed in Manhattan by Trump, three of his children, and the Trump Organization, and targets both Deutsche Bank and Capital One. They allege the subpoenas were intended to “harass” Trump and only serve a political purpose.
“This case involves congressional subpoenas that have no legitimate or lawful purpose,” the lawsuit says. “The subpoenas were issued to harass President Donald J. Trump, to rummage through every aspect of his personal finances, his businesses and the private information of the president and his family, and to ferret about for any material that might be used to cause him political damage. No grounds exist to establish any purpose other than a political one.”
