THE GUARDIAN – Donald Trump, three of his children and seven of his companies have filed a US federal lawsuit against Deutsche Bank and Capital One in an attempt to stop them from complying with subpoenas investigating his financial dealings. Filed late on Monday in a federal court in New York, the lawsuit stated that demands for records by Democrat-controlled house committees have no legitimate or lawful purpose.
The chairs of the House financial services and intelligence committees, Reps. Maxine Waters and Adam Schiff, respectively, said in a joint statement that the lawsuit was “meritless.”
“This lawsuit is not designed to succeed; it is only designed to put off meaningful accountability as long as possible,” they said.
Two weeks ago, Democrat Adam Schiff, the leaker and head of the House Intelligence, and Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, subpoenaed the Trump Family bank records with Deutsche Bank.
