Donald Trump defends himself against the attempt by the Democrats in Congress to gain insight into the finances of the US President.
Lawyers of Donald Trump filed Monday on a lawsuit against the Democrats want to force the release of financial documents.
With their newly won majority in the House of Representatives, the Democrats are forging ahead with several investigations against Trump.
Elijah Cummings, Chairman of the Audit Committee, had requested a company to provide financial records with which Trump and his companies had long worked in accounting.
Cummings exhibited a Subpoena, with which he can force the company Mazars USA under penalty of reprisal for surrender.
Trump’s lawyers argue that this step is inadmissible. They accused the Democrats of conducting a political war against Trump.
Instead of working with the president, they were “obsessed” with finding something that could harm him, according to Monday’s lawsuit. Trump complains accordingly as a private person, not as a president.
