Donald Trump slapped Nancy Pelosi with a lawsuit that made her head spin

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are pressing forward with their plans to impeach Donald Trump.

But they just got a rude awakening.

That’s because Donald Trump slapped Pelosi and the Democrats with this lawsuit that will make their heads spin.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings – working at the behest of Nancy Pelosi – fired off a series of subpoenas to financial institutions doing business with Donald Trump.

Cummings and other Democrats want to dig through Trump’s finances in hopes of finding politically embarrassing material they can use as part of their impeachment witch hunt.

But Trump and his legal team are fighting back.

They filed suit to squash the subpoenas, arguing Cummings has no legitimate legislative purpose for wanting them.

The New York Times reports:

President Trump and his businesses, seeking to brush back congressional investigators, sued the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Monday to try to quash a congressional subpoena for their financial records.

The lawsuit, filed in Federal District Court here, argued that the committee’s chairman, Representative Elijah E. Cummings, Democrat of Maryland, had no legitimate legislative reason to subpoena an accounting company tied to the president, so his subpoena should be deemed invalid and unenforceable.

“The Democratic Party, with its newfound control of the U.S. House of Representatives, has declared all-out political war against President Donald J. Trump,” lawyers for the plaintiffs wrote in their complaint. “Subpoenas are their weapon of choice.”

The lawyers are also seeking a court order blocking the accounting company, Mazars USA, from handing over the information, which it says would “expose plaintiffs’ confidential information.”

The House of Representatives cannot just go on wild fishing expeditions.

There has to be a purpose to their oversight.

Committee chairmen don’t get to harass private businesses into divulging confidential financial records just so they can make political hay out of them.

    Yes, I see a pattern but it would be stupid for me to say it. Today, you never know what these elites have decided. certain words are subject to racial slurs. I would suggest that Each of these people have their income records pulled along with their checking and savings accounts. What is good for the goose is good for the gande!!. The only time I have read about such diviciousness,is Stephen King’s horror movies.

    Yes. Jesse Jackson came to CA because a black girl killed. He wanted a riots. Law Enforcement told him to leave. The women had a rap sheet mile long.
    All the Liberals are racial.
    The only reason they want Illegals is votes. Voting fraud in CA the worse.

    Him and his wife are both criminals and deserve to be prosecuted. They’re both now being investigated for a fraudulent scam using money for from a supposed charity and putting it into a for profit company they have which is highly illegal and could send them both to jail. His wife is refusing to let anyone look at the financial records of the charity which are supposed to be available upon demand and is illegal to not show them when asked as is the same law for all charity organizations.
