Trump, businesses sue Oversight chairman to block subpoena for financial records
By Jacqueline Thomsen - 04/22/19 09:32 AM EDT


President Trump and his private business are suing House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) to try and block a subpoena requesting financial records from the president’s accountant.

Cummings issued the request for 10 years of Trump's financial records to Mazars USA, a firm used by the president and his businesses.

“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 lawsuit reads. “Instead of working with the President to pass bipartisan legislation that would actually benefit Americans, House Democrats are singularly obsessed with finding something they can use to damage the President politically.”


This developing report will be updated.

1. Does the pResident not remember Whitewater???

 

That was almost 15 years before Clinton became President. That was what the Starr investigations began with and ended in impeachment over Monica Lewinski. Sorry, but being singularly obsessed with finding something they can use to damage the President politically is allowed. It's been done before, by Republicans. There is precedence.

2. How was Trump not impeached long ago over failure to divest?

I still don't get why the emoluments clause didn't seem to apply to him
