House Democrats denounce Trump suit to block subpoena of financial records as threat to congressional oversight
Attorneys for the Democratic chairman of the House Oversight Committee said in court papers Wednesday that a lawsuit filed by President Trump aimed at blocking a panel subpoena was an attack on constitutional checks and balances and on Congress’s oversight powers. In a 34-page answer to the lawsuit, filed April 22 by Trump against Chairman Elijah E. Cummings and Trump’s accounting firm, lawyers for Cummings (D-Md.) urged a federal judge to reject the president’s request to temporarily block the subpoena while the case proceeds. Ruling for Trump “would directly impede ongoing congressional investigations of national importance and threaten the constitutional system that separates and divides power between the branches of government,” lawyers for the House panel wrote.
