Congress Hits New Low With Subpoenas for Trump's Grandkids
While the grandstanding surrounding Attorney General William Barr's appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee was obnoxious, asking him to appear, at least in theory, is a fair request.

The latest stunt by Democrats is not.

Progressives hellbent on impeachment, despite the political reality – much less having a case – don't know when to stop.

You may have heard that the Trump administration is suing both Capital One and Deutsche Bank to fight a subpoena issued by Democrats on the House Financial Services and Intelligence committees for the president’s financial records.

Tellingly, the chairs of the House Financial Services and Intelligence committees are Reps. Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters.

What you might not realize is that this also involves “documents about accounts of the plaintiffs’ children (and in some cases, grandchildren),” according to Trump’s lawyers.

“The committees, the Trumps’ lawyers said, have refused to provide copies of the subpoenas to the Trump family, and their scope was learned from Deustche Bank and Capital One,” Politico reported Monday. “But according to the lawsuit, the committees are seeking ‘all banking and financial records not just concerning the individual plaintiffs, but also their own family members.'”

Trump’s lawsuit makes no bones about where the president’s team stands.

"The House of Representatives is demanding, among other things, records of every single checking withdrawal, credit-card swipe, or debit-card purchase — no matter how trivial or small — made by each and every member of the Trump family," the president's lawyers fired back.
