The subpoena is requesting a wide swath of financial documents and other related materials from Trump, the Trump Organization, the Trump Corporation, Trump’s holdings company, the Trump Foundation, the Trump International Hotel in Washington and his trust.

“We will not allow Congressional Presidential harassment to go unanswered,” Jay Sekulow, personal counsel to the president said in a statement, who added the subpoena “lacks any legitimate legislative purpose, is an abuse of power and is just another example of overreach by the president’s political opponents.”
