President Trump and his businesses ask a court to block Congress from obtaining accounting records

Trump seeks to protect financial recordsPresident Donald Trump and his private business filed a federal lawsuit Monday to block the House from obtaining financial records from the company’s longtime accountant.

The 14-page complaint, which reads like a cross between a campaign ad and a traditional lawsuit, accuses House Democrats of having “declared all-out political war” with “subpoenas are their weapon on choice.” It asks a federal court to prevent the Trump Organization's accounting firm, Mazars USA, from being forced to turn over financial records to congressional investigators.

The lawsuit is the latest salvo in a series of investigation that are continuing into Trump and his businesses in the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. That probe ended without a finding that Trump had committed a crime, but federal prosecutors and a half-dozen congressional committees are conducting separate investigations of the president and his business.
