(Gateway Pundit) – The Democrat-controlled House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings (above left), subpoenaed President Trump’s financial information from Mazars, an accounting firm that once prepared Trump’s financial statements.
Cummings based his subpoena on testimony given from Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, who has been convicted of lying to Congress.
The House Committee is requesting financial data on Trump going back 10 years after Cohen accused Trump of inflating his net worth so he could attempt to purchase the Buffalo Bills NFL team.
Rep. Cummings said in a memo that the subpoena is also based on “corroborating documents” that “raise grave questions about whether the President has been accurate in his financial reporting.”
Other Democrat Committee chairs are also harassing President Trump with Soviet style investigations — Maxine Waters recently subpoenaed Trump’s financial information from Deutsche Bank and House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff issued subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and other financial institutions on Monday as well.
A ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) responded to Elijah Cummings in a memo to the committee for subpoenaing Trump’s financial information.
“This subpoena is a grave abuse of the committee’s authority and a violation of the Chairman’s pledge to the committee,” Jim Jordan wrote. “For these reasons, I reluctantly write to inform the Members of the Committee why I strongly object to Chairman Cummings’s unprecedented subpoena to Mazars and his irresponsible and gravely dangerous course of conduct in a singular obsession of attacking President Trump and his family for political gain.”
Congressman Jim Jordan slammed the Stalinist Democrats on Tuesday and listed the various investigations they launched into the President.
