California Democrats Reps. Maxine Waters and Adam Schiff, chairs of the House Financial Services Committee and House Intelligence Committee, respectively, plan to launch a joint investigation between the House Intelligence and Financial Services Committees into the German Deutsche Bank, which has had substantial dealings with President Trump, Politico reported. 

The bank also has been scrutinized for potential money laundering violations.

Waters has previously vowed to follow the “Trump money trail” and Schiff told Politico that he believes the two committees — now armed with subpoena power — will be “more effective” working together.

  1. Clearly, Trump has nothing to hide and he will gladly provide open access to all of his and the Trump organizations’ books.

  2. I hope the sweetheart deal that Deutsche Bank got from the Trump family administration to settle the money laundering and funding of virulent wahabbi Saudi terrorist groups is rescinded.

    Also, the bonuses paid by Deutsche bank to sleazy Justin Kennedy for financing the Trump family and the quid pro quo for forcing his father Anthony Kennedy to resign from the Supreme Court should be investigated.

  3. And apparently everyone is fine with the fact that GOP senators voted to lift a ban on a Russian oligarch. NO PROBLEM! Why in God’s name would anyone vote to do this? And not a word, as usual. But we are already hearing about Joe Biden’s taking money for a speech for a representative’s campaign.

    Crack open Deutsche Bank, and a lot of money-laundering Russians will fall out, with significant sums headed to the Trump Organization.
