Trump sues to block subpoenas for business records

(AP) – A German bank being sued by President Donald Trump in his attempt to block congressional subpoenas for his business records says it’s “committed to providing appropriate information.”

Deutsche (DOY’-chuh) Bank spokeswoman Kerrie McHugh said Tuesday in a statement, “We remain committed to providing appropriate information to all authorized investigations and will abide by a court order regarding such investigations.”

Trump is suing Deutsche Bank and Capital One. The lawsuit by Trump, his sons Donald Jr. and Eric and his daughter Ivanka was filed Monday in federal court in New York.

Two House committees subpoenaed Deutsche Bank and several other financial institutions this month as part of investigations into Trump’s finances.

The Trump lawsuit seeks to block the financial institutions from disclosing information and complying with the subpoenas.

Capital One hasn’t responded to a request for comment.
