President Donald Trump's legal team is preparing for multiple new legal fights after the end of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, ABC News reports.
Trump's personal attorney, Jay Sekulow, told ABC News' "The Investigation" podcast that federal investigators in New York are "not done" looking into alleged campaign finance violations involving payments made to a woman claiming to have had an affair with Trump. Sekulow said he is "of the view that that's not going anywhere."
He added Democrats in Congress will fail in their efforts to obtain copies of the president's tax returns, saying they do not have "a legitimate legislative purpose in asking for the tax return."
"What is the investigative purpose for them to have his tax return?" he asked. "They're not investigators."
"What is their legislative purpose in asking for the tax return and how he spent his money?" Sekulow said. "Are they going to pass the Donald Trump Tax Reform Act?"
Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, told ABC News earlier this month the panel has built an "air-tight" legal strategy to obtain Trump's tax returns, and are assuming this will end up in court.
"It will be fought out in the courts, and then possibly the Supreme Court," Pascrell said.
"We knew this would eventually happen,” he added. “They weren't going to simply take the letter and agree to it.”
