Press Release
The Courts have repeatedly reaffirmed the Congress’s authority to conduct oversight on behalf of the American people, and have specifically recognized that the Committees’ subpoenas of the President’s financial records are valid and enforceable.

As the Courts continue to rule, the President’s plan to cancel military construction projects to pay for his ineffective, wasteful wall is clearly illegal, as he is stealing from appropriated funds, an action that was not authorized by constitutional or statutory authority.
