The suit, first reported by The New York Times, alleges that the subpoenas "have no legitimate or lawful purpose" and were issued "to rummage through every aspect of [Trump's] personal finances, his businesses, and the private information of the President and his family, and to ferret about for any material that might be used to cause him political damage."
