Boy, is Trump having a bad week or what?

The attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia on Tuesday formally demanded financial records from U.S. President Donald Trump’s businesses as part of their lawsuit alleging his dealings with foreign governments violate anti-corruption clauses of the U.S. Constitution.
The attorneys general issued subpoenas to the Trump Organization Inc, the president’s privately owned real estate company, and related corporate entities.
The flurry of subpoenas came one day after U.S. District Judge Peter Messitte in Greenbelt, Maryland, began the case’s discovery phase, which allows litigants to demand answers to specific questions and production of sensitive documents.
The U.S. Department of Justice, which is defending the president in the litigation, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Keep in mind this is not part of the Mueller probe, and that he probably has had access to these records for months now.
I swear there is not enough popcorn on the planet for all of this.
