WATCH: Trump blows off threat of Congressional investigation into his finances
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.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said at the time that the subpoenas were part of an investigation “into allegations of potential foreign influence on the U.S. political process.”
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 did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
A German bank being sued by President Donald Trump in his attempt to block congressional subpoenas for his business records says it’s “committed to providing appropriate information.”
Deutsche Bank spokeswoman Kerrie McHugh said Tuesday in a statement, “We remain committed to providing appropriate information to all authorized investigations and will abide by a court order regarding such investigations.”
Capital One hasn’t responded to a request for comment.
