President Donald Trump today filed a lawsuit against House Oversight and Reform Committee Chair Elijah Cummings to block a subpoena of the president's financial records from an accounting firm, Politico reports. In a new court filing, Trump’s attorneys asked for an order to block Cummings’ subpoena to Mazars USA. The Democratic lawmaker is attempting to obtain eight years of the president’s financial records from Mazars, which had asked the committee for a so-called friendly subpoena so that it could comply with the request.
