New York, NY – On May 22, 2019, the day Trump’s lawyers (Consovoy McCarthy Park) appeared to represent the Trumps and Trump Organization in the Southern District Court of New York, members of the NYC activist group Rise and Resist held a demonstration in front of the U.S. Courthouse in Foley Square to demand the release of Trump’s financial records.
The House Of Representatives requested the information to follow up on allegations of money laundering, bank fraud, and tax fraud
Trump’s lawyers attempted to stop Deutsche Bank and Capital One from complying with “friendly” subpoenas from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Committee on Financial Services.
Filing this lawsuit, to prevent compliance, is part of Trump’s pattern of refusal to comply with requests for information about his finances and his taxes.
He is refusing to recognize the right of the House of Representatives to hold hearings and have oversight.
This is a direct challenge to the checks and balances of branches of the government. We are in a Constitutional crisis and the Congress and the public have a right to know!
