In a complaint filed yesterday, President Trump, his children, and entities related to Trump family businesses sued two financial institutions to prevent them from responding to recent subpoenas issued by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Financial Services Committee. The subpoenas seek banking and financial records related to Trump family businesses; according to the complaint, “the subpoenas were issued to harass President Donald J. Trump, to rummage through every aspect of his personal finances, his business, and the private information of the President and his family, and to ferret about for any material that might be used to cause him political damage.”

The complaint contains a single cause of action for declaratory and injunctive relief to prevent compliance with the subpoenas. The case has been assigned to Judge Ramos.
