Donald Trump is taking his fight to keep his finances a secret to court. Trump is suing to block a subpoena from the House Oversight Committee to Mazars, an accounting firm Trump uses.

“Democrats are singularly obsessed with finding something they can use to damage the President politically,” according to Trump’s court filing, itself a part of Trump being singularly obsessed with keeping his finances a secret even as he profits from the presidency.

House Oversight Committee Chair Elijah Cummings issued a subpoena to Mazars last week after he had requested Trump’s financial information, and after the firm had indicated it would comply with a subpoena. Cummings informed members of his committee that he was seeking “to determine whether [Trump] has undisclosed conflicts of interest that may impair his ability to make impartial policy decisions, to assess whether he is complying with the Emoluments Clauses of the Constitution, and to review whether he has accurately reported his finances to the Office of Government Ethics and other federal entities.”

If he has done nothing wrong then he shouldn’t have anything to hide

The American judicial and political system is so corrupt that they couldnt even get Al Capone on anything other then Tax Evasion. Not one banker went to jail for the bank fiasco condoned by the US govt under Bush 43 to get America financially solvent after 9-11. Only the minorities and the poor go to jail. Even the few wealthy that go to prison, only go to “country club” like facilities

This POS must have spent more $ on lawyers to cover his evil deeds, than some countries spend on their GDP.
