A tax and accounting firm said on Wednesday that they are ready to send the House Oversight and Reform Committee 10 years of President Donald Trump’s financial records as soon as they receive a subpoena from lawmakers, the panel’s chairman said on Wednesday.
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) told reporters that Mazars USA, a tax and accounting firm, has asked his committee to issue a so-called “friendly” subpoena so that it can formalize the process of complying with the panel’s request, according to Politico.
“They have told us that they will provide the information pretty much when they have a subpoena. And we’ll get them a subpoena,” Cummings told reporters.
The chairman formally requested the documents last month in a letter which referenced aspects of former Trump attorney and fixer Michael Cohen’s testimony before the Oversight Committee in February.
The chairman had asked the firm to turn over the documents by Wednesday.
Republicans have attacked the investigation as an effort to “solely embarrass President Trump and to advance the relentless Democrat attacks upon the Trump administration,” the report said.
