Trump, His Family Sue Deutsche Bank, Capital One to Stop Them From Answering Congressional Subpoenas

President Trump, members of his family, and the Trump Organization have filed a lawsuit against Deutsche Bank and Capital One to stop the banks from answering congressional subpoenas.

According to court documents filed in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York on Monday, the Trump family argues that such subpoenas—part of an extensive House Judiciary Committee investigation into public corruption and obstruction of justice—are meant to “ferret about for any material that might be used to cause [the president] political damage” and that “no grounds exist to establish any purpose other than a political one.”

New of of the suit was first reported by The New York Times.

“We filed this case to protect the privacy rights of the President, his family and their businesses,” Trump’s attorneys reportedly said in a statement on Monday. “The subpoenas issued to Deutsche Bank and Capital One by Chairpersons Schiff and Waters are unlawful and illegitimate. They seek information going back decades from anyone with even a tangential connection to the President, including children minors and spouses.”

“Every citizen should be concerned about this sweeping, lawless, invasion of privacy,” the statement continued. “We look forward to vindicating our clients’ rights in this matter.”

The suit also contends that, on April 17, 2019, attorneys for Deutsche Bank issued a written statement that said the subpoenas seek “‘records and/ or information related to banking activities, including information regarding accounts, financings, and related financial information’ for all named Plaintiffs.’”

A Deutsche Bank spokeswoman told the Times “we remain committed to providing appropriate information to all authorized investigations and will abide by a court order regarding such investigations.”

This story is developing.

The democrat turds in the House have no legitimate reason to see those records, since this latest stupid move by left wing turds is nothing more than a fishing expedition.

The High Court will deny this act of desperation.

If the liberal turds were to prevail, it would be setting a precedent that could come back to bite them.

Nothing, your problem is you are weaponizing Government for your own person political attack when you have no basis whatsoever.  They made up a Russia collusion story, now they want to take the made up story and make up more shit that the President has some shady dealings with Russia in his business.

So lets play this out, any party in power can just make shit up, then rummage through any political opponents taxes, background, finances they feel like because of the shit they made up in the first place.

Chalking tires is a legitimate reference to looking helter-skelter for evidence of a something that may not even have occurred. Deleting responses out of ignorance guaranties a dearth of intelligent discussion, encouraging the scorched earth of a thread.

So why don't post something that I can troll?  Like you're doing here?

I don't see you posting anything intelligent or worth discussing.  

'guaranties a dearth'

Could you translate that into English?

So were Obama's still locked records of his schooling years.

The people have a right to know.

Trump demanded Obama's school records - and as soon as he did so, he immediately threatened his own schools to ensure that his records would never come to light.  Because he knew that fair is fair, and if Obama needed to disclose his, then Trump needed to disclose his.  He's a hypocrite through and through, as well as a pathological liar.
