Judge rejects Trump effort to block Deutsche Bank subpoena

The investigation is particularly focused on the relationship between Trump and Deutsche Bank, one of the few major banks to continue lending him money after a series of bankruptcies in the 1990s. Headquartered in NY - the business capital of the world - FBN launched in October 2007 and is the leading business network on television, topping CNBC in Business Day viewers for the second consecutive year. The subpoena of Capital One, meanwhile, will yield records on the Trump Organization's hotel business, which Democrats hope to scour for any signs of conflicts of interest that might be informing the president's policies. He said, "It's totally the wrong decision by, obviously, an Obama-appointed judge".

Trump's lawyers had asked Ramos to temporarily block Congress from gaining access to the records.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that she was "very excited" by the outcome.

Representative Maxine Waters, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, told reporters after the lawsuit was filed that Trump had "cast a gauntlet". "Two in one week".

Shortly before Election Day in 2016, Deutsche Bank finalized a $285 million loan to Kushner's real estate company, The Washington Post has previously reported.

An attorney for the House Democrats, Douglas Neal Letter, said the committees have issued "a whole batch of subpoenas. having nothing to do with Trump or his family".

"We now have two opinions". But Cummings said that the two rulings together solidify Congress's right to these documents. "So far, I think the president would be wise to come to the realization that our legitimate areas of inquiry are going to be supported by the courts", Michigan Democrat Representative Dan Kildee told Reuters.

The Trump family lawyers signaled that they will appeal the ruling, but they did not comment after the hearing.

Ramos described the subpoenas as "undeniably broad" but "clearly pertinent".

These subpoenas "do not constitute impermissible law enforcement activities", he said, adding that he believes lawmakers should receive the documents quickly.

Mehta wrote that the House Oversight Committee had "facially valid legislative purposes" for subpoenaing Mazars for records related to Trump and his businesses.

The Democrats began their investigations on the president after gaining control of the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm election and increased the number of probes after special counsel Robert Mueller concluded that Trump had not colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election.

The congressional committees' demands for financial records of the President, his family and their business firms grow, in part, out of congressional testimony by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen that Trump routinely manipulated those records in order to enhance his chances for bank loans or to reduce his tax obligations. At one point, when Trump had trouble paying back a loan for a Chicago tower, Trump sued the bank, saying it had played a role in a broader financial crisis that hurt the project.
