From before the 2016 election, Democrats were demanding that Donald Trump produce his tax returns for the past 10 years.
Trump refused and this has Democrats claiming that he has to release them, when in reality, there is NOTHING that says any politician must release their personal tax information.
Believing that Trump has something to hide, some Democrats are trying to use subpoenas to obtain Trump’s financial records.
Trump’s attorneys have now filed a lawsuit to block the subpoenas designed to give his enemies access to his personal financial records.

Fox News – Trump sues to block Democrats’ subpoena for financial information – Lawyers for President Trump on Monday sued to block a subpoena issued by members of Congress that sought the business magnate’s financial records.
The complaint named Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Democratic chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Peter Kenny, the chief investigative counsel of the House committee, as its plaintiffs.
“We will not allow Congressional Presidential harassment to go unanswered,” said Jay Sekulow, counsel to the president.
Earlier this month, Cummings, D-Md., said the committee would subpoena accounting firm Mazars USA LLC for Trump’s financial information. Cummings is seeking annual statements, periodic financial reports and independent auditors reports from Mazars, as well as records of communications with Trump…
The subpoenas to obtain Trump’s financial records is another example of the double-standard hypocrisy that Democrats follow.
Barack Obama hid many of his own personal records and Democrats defended his right to do so.
In fact, Obama never provided the official documents required for someone who is running for the White House. He didn’t produce the fraudulent birth certificate until AFTER he was sworn into office.
Many of Obama’s college and other personal records were sealed to prevent anyone from accessing them to learn about who the real Obama is, and yet the same Democrats who defended Obama are the ones trying to force Trump to release his personal information.
