The president accused opposition party lawmakers of using their investigations as a strategy for next year’s presidential election.

The House Judiciary Committee has issued a subpoena for former White House counsel Don McGahn, while the House Oversight Committee is moving to hold former White House personnel security director Carl Kline in contempt for failing to appear at a hearing.

A second demand from House Democrats for Trump’s tax returns spanning a six-year period has been defied by the Treasury Department.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin sent a letter Tuesday to the House Ways and Means Committee saying he would give a final response on May 6, noting that the request raises “serious constitutional questions” and his department is continuing to consult with the Justice Department.
