Trump sues banks to block House subpoenas for records
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is suing Deutsche Bank and Capital One in an attempt to block congressional subpoenas for his business records.
The lawsuit by Trump, his sons Donald Jr. and Eric and his daughter Ivanka was filed Monday in federal court in New York. The Trump Organization and the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust are among the other plaintiffs.
Two House committees subpoenaed Deutsche Bank and several other financial institutions earlier this month as part of investigations into Trump's finances. The Trumps want a federal judge to declare the subpoenas unlawful and unenforceable.
The lawsuit also seeks to block the financial institutions from disclosing information and complying with the subpoenas. The banks have not responded to requests for comment.
