President Trump argued in a court document filed late Monday that a federal judge should deny a motion to dismiss his lawsuit challenging New York’s law that allows Congress to request his tax returns.

The New York officials argued in their motion to dismiss that the case should not be heard in federal court in Washington, D.C., and should either be dismissed or heard in federal court in New York. But Trump’s lawyers on Monday argued the New York officials’ motion should either be rejected or should not be ruled on until Congress makes a request for the president’s state tax returns.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The New York Defendants’ motion to dismiss should be denied. It is premature, meritless, and futile,” Trump’s lawyers wrote.

Trump, in his capacity as a private citizen, has filed a lawsuit in an effort to prevent House Democrats from obtaining his New York tax returns. The lawsuit names as defendants the Democratic-led House Ways and Means Committee, committee chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.), committee chief tax counsel Andrew Grossman, New York Attorney General Letitia James and New York tax official Michael Schmidt.
