Subpoenas Issued to Trump Organization in Emoluments Lawsuit

The attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia on Tuesday formally demanded financial records from U.S. President Donald Trump’s businesses as part of their lawsuit alleging his dealings with foreign governments violate anti-corruption clauses of the U.S. Constitution, reports Reuters.

The Trump Organization Inc., the president’s privately owned real estate company, and related corporate entities received the subpoenas, according to Reuters reporter Jan Wolfe.

The report quotes George Brown, a professor at Boston College Law School:

The development “brings us closer to judicially enforced discovery about the Trump empire,” said Brown. “It will probably tell us a lot we don’t know because nobody is going to hide that stuff in the face of a subpoena.”
