Trump sues to block Democrats’ subpoena
for financial information
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....​
In a statement about Monday’s suit to block the subpoena, Trump lawyers William Consovoy, of Consovoy McCarthy Park PLLC, and Stefan Passantino, of Michael Best & Friedrich LLP said, “The Committee’s attempt to obtain years’ worth of confidential information from their accountants lacks any legitimate legislative purpose, is an abuse of power, and is just another example of overreach by the President’s political opponents. We look forward to vindicating our clients’ rights in this matter.”​

Good luck with that, Trump.
This obvious extention of the witch hunt will surely fail unless the inquisitors can cite a specific crime with evidence. The open ended "we need to go thru everything Trump to find criminal activity that we can use to keep him from winning in 2020" shouldn't get past the first strike. The citation of a suspected crime isn't backed up by evidence, it's a ruse to try and convince the court that they need to paw thru everything Trump to find it. I predict that neither side will stop at anything short of a SCOTUS decision.
