The trial is the first case in which Trump has sued to try and stomp the house democrats’ investigations to the president. But the court application is just the first helmet in what is likely to be a war between the House Democrats and Trump, the White House and the President’s company.

Trump and the Trump organization led Monday to stop the House – Chairman of the Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland – from obtaining financial records from Mazars, an accounting firm that Trump used to prepare financial statements. The committee waived the 10-year value of Trump’s financial register after the company requested a so-called “friendly daily allowance”.

On Monday’s court application, Trump’s lawyers accused the House Democrats of being “solely obsessed with finding something they could use to harm the president politically.”

Cummings dismissed the legal complaint as reading “more as political talk points than a justified legal short “and said it contains” a litany ofaccurate information “.

“The chairman has a long history of trying to use baseless trials to attack his opponents, but there is simply no valid legal basis to interfere with this duly authorized daytime congress,” Cummings said. “The White House is committed to unparalleled stonewalling on all fronts and they have refused to produce a single document or witness to the Supervisory Committee throughout the year. “

Trump has argued that Mueller’s report released last week freed him on both investigations into the collusion and obstruction of justice. But the end of Mueller The survey has also kicked the democratic led investigations to Trump, his administration and his company into high gear &#821

1; giving Democrats both a road map and a better sense of which areas are mature for further investigation. has a democrat rna has become the heat of his investigations into the president’s finances, which did not mention anything in the special council’s report.

In addition to the House Supervisory Committee’s lawsuit to Mazars, the House Intelligence and Financial Services panels have brought nine financial institutions as part of a Trump Finance Survey. The President’s personal lawyers have responded by sending letters to the company and the finance department to claim that they would not hand over the information.

A special panel, the House Judiciary Committee, has issued a lawsuit for special councilor Robert Mueller’s unredacted report and underlying evidence, and New York’s chairman Jerry Nadler has said he will go to court to obtain these documents.

And House Ways and Means chairman Richard Neal, who has been requesting six years of the president’s personal and business venture, is ready for a long-term legal battle for the Treasury Treasury’s tax information not complying with the April 23 deadline.

Fighting Congress Authority

 ] Waiting for Mueller, Democrats plowing with probes

Trump The organization’s Consulate General Alan Garten called the day goal for Mazar’s “an unprecedented overreach of the Congress Authority.”

Jennifer Farrington, Marketing Director of Marketing, Mazars USA, confirmed that they had received the trial but declined to comment on the legal proceedings.

“As a company, we will respect this process and will comply with all legal obligations. As with all customers, we are excluded from our professional code of conduct and corporate policy from commenting on requests of this nature,” she said.

Showdowns for information between the legislative and executive branches rarely go to court, but the Democrats have said they can go that way because of administrative stonewalling, which could create a new norm in the time of congressional death.

Trump’s lawyers argued in court that Cummings had no constitutional right to bring Trump’s financial information because

“Since the court of Cumming’s counterpart to Mazars threatens to disclose the plaintiff’s confidential information and lacks a legitimate legislative purpose,” that court has the power to explain it invalid and applying its enforcement “lawsuit says.” Its aim is to reveal the plaintiff’s private financial data for exposure, hoping that it will emerge as democrats can use as a political tool against the president now and in 2020 election. “

Judgment in connection with Cohen document

Cummings issued a court to Mazars last week after the accounting firm requested one to follow the committee’s document request, and also sent a memo to committee members earlier in month, which said he issued the lawsuit because of “big questions about whether the president has been correct in his financial reporting”.

Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen gave the committee three years worth of Trump financial statements, from 2011-2013, Prepared by Mazars, Cohen accused Trump of inflating his net worth in the financial statements while trying to buy the Buffalo Bills football team.

2017, the court case is unusual, but it has been several examples in recent years. Republican led House Intelligence Committee successfully sued their Fusion GPS bank record judgment , the company that employed ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele for the Trump and Russia opposition research document.

And in 2012, the Republican-led House Monitoring Committee sued for information to Fast and Furious, the gunwalking scandal that left a border patrol agent dead. Congress then held attorney Eric Holder in contempt of Congress over the fight. In 2014, a judge ordered the administration to hand over more than 60,000 documents, but the fight for information is still pending at the courts.

The case was slightly different in the sense that Fast and Furious was an example of the congress that condemned the administration for information. In this case, Trump and his company are personally complaining to stop the auditing firm from reversing the information to Congress.
