Democrats sit in the hot seat as they try to cover up their attempted coup. But they keep digging deeper.
As Judge Andrew Napolitano pointed out, Democrats got sloppy in their targeting of President Trump.
As Fox News reported,
On Wednesday, a federal judge in New York ruled that two other banks, Deutsche Bank and Capital One, were required to comply with congressional subpoenas seeking access to Trump’s financial records.
The House Financial Services Committee and the House Intelligence Committee both have requested the documents from Deutsche Bank and Capital One in their investigations of possible “foreign influence in the U.S. political process.”
“We remain committed to providing appropriate information to all authorized investigations and will abide by a court order regarding such investigations,” Deutsche Bank said in a statement to Fox News after the ruling.
Meanwhile, the House Ways and Means Committee is seeking the president’s tax returns, and has issued subpoenas for the files.
Clearly this law is targeted at President Trump.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he would not comply with the subpoena for the president’s tax returns last week. But this week, a confidential draft IRS memo was revealed calling the disclosure “mandatory” unless the president asserts executive privilege over the financial documents.
The Washington Post first reported on the 10-page memo, which does not mention Trump by name. However, it appears to add a new level of pressure to the White House. Mnuchin, though, has maintained that the Democrats’ requests for Trump’s tax returns “lacks a legitimate legislative purpose” and said his department will not “disclose the requested returns and return information.”
Democrats got their wish, and two banks capitulated on Trump’s records. Now what?
Wells Fargo and TD Bank have turned over President Trump’s financial records to the House Financial Services Committee, Fox News confirmed on Thursday, amid a contentious legal battle between the Trump administration and congressional Democrats seeking access to sensitive files.
The committee, led by Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is one of several panels that have issued subpoenas and requests for Trump’s financial files.
Democrats have now seen Trump’s bank records for almost two weeks. Yet we’ve heard nothing.
I hear the ghost of Rachel Maddow’s Trump tax return reveal. We all know how that ended. Understand that Democrats got NOTHING in Trump’s finances, except embarrassment.
