A lawsuit was filed on behalf of the Trump Organization seeking to block a subpoena issued by Rep. Elijah Cummings. Cummings’s subpoena is requesting financial information from Mazars USA, an accounting firm that has done work for the Trump Organization.
The subpoena demands financial statements and supporting documents from Mazars for Mr. Trump, the Trump Organization, and other entities such as a revocable trust in the president’s name. The time period for the subpoena included calendar years 2011 through 2018. In a memo to committee members announcing his intention to issue the subpoena, Mr. Cummings said financial statements Cohen gave to the committee in 2011, 2012, and 2013 raise “serious questions” about Mr. Trump’s representations of his financial condition.
