President Donald Trump’s lawyers have mounted a new effort to keep a Washington, D.C., judge on his lawsuit targeting a New York state law that would allow Congress to access his tax returns, The Hill reports.

Trump’s attorneys from Consovoy McCarthy in an amended complaint filed Monday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia said D.C. “is where the TRUST Act is aimed and where the president’s injury and virtually all of the relevant conduct will occur.”

“For example, the committee will request the president’s tax returns here, New York will send the returns here, the committee will review the returns here, the committee will hold hearings (including testimony from New York officials) about the returns here, the committee will use the returns to draft and consider legislation here, and the committee will decide whether and how to disclose the returns here,” the complaint said.

Trump in mid-July sued New York State officials and the House Ways and Means Committee to try to block congressional Democrats from using the New York law to obtain his state tax returns.
