Now, the Trump family is moving to stop a series of subpoenas, from the same House Committee, created to seek information on how and why Deutsche Bank and Capital One continued extending the Trump Corporation lines of credit in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when other financial institutions had clearly blacklisted the company. The panels are led by Reps. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. and Adam Schiff, D-Calif., called the Trump suit "meritless".
In the complaint, Trump, his adult children Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka, and the Trump Organization accused House leaders of pursuing records for no legitimate or lawful goal.
It adds: "No grounds exist to establish any objective other than a political one".
They are hoping a judge will rule the subpoenas filed by the House Intelligence and Financial Services committees are unlawful and not enforceable. Every citizen should be concerned about this sweeping, lawless, invasion of privacy. "We look forward to vindicating our clients' rights in this matter", Trump's attorneys argued. "That is not a basis for quashing a subpoena". This is literally things they're asking for, .[from] any Trump family member from any period of time going back in history.
"That's how subpoena power works - it's about getting information that people would like to be kept private", he said.
"This lawsuit is not created to succeed; it is only created to put off meaningful accountability as long as possible", Waters and Schiff said.
Trump has said that his administration is "fighting all the subpoenas", claiming that Democrats in Congress are incapable of acting as impartial investigators. The lawsuit also seeks to block the financial institutions from disclosing information and complying with the subpoenas. Last week Trump's team sued the accounting firm Mazars USA and House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., in order to likewise thwart attempts to obtain the president's financial records.
The committees are reportedly seeking documents and materials relating to the bank's longstanding relationship with Mr Trump and his family. The outlet alleged that Deutsche Bank's loans to Trump totaled $2 billion, also reporting that Trump could be lying about his net worth and assets. The requests are part of Democratic probes into possible Russian money-laundering.
The congressional lawsuits are more evidence that President Trump is making good on his promise to aggressively fight or stall Democratic investigations into his personal finances and business.
On Monday the president and three of his children filed suit in federal court in NY against Deutsche Bank and Capital One. Although the German lender's investment bank had severed ties with Trump during the financial crisis, after he defaulted on a loan and then sued the bank, its wealth management unit continued to extend him credit. Capital One hasn't responded to a request for comment.
