If you thought you’d have to wait for the public release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report to discover details pertaining to Donald Trump’s financial relationship with Deutsche Bank, then you thought wrong. As it turns out, House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters has revealed that, per her request, the bank has begun providing Trump’s banking records to her.
According to The Hill:
“Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that Deutsche Bank has begun cooperating with an investigation into its extensive history with Trump, who borrowed millions of dollars from the bank over several decades.
When asked Tuesday at the Capitol if Deutsche Bank had started to hand over records of it financial relationship with Trump, Waters replied, “Yes.”
The chairwoman also said she was satisfied with Deutsche Bank’s cooperation with the probe and that the Financial Services panel is looking into “everything” regarding Trump’s dealings with the bank.”
Considering Deutsche Bank was once busted by the Feds for having laundered billions of dollars of money between its Moscow and New York City branches, and the fact that it also spent several years loaning large sums of money to Donald Trump around the same timeframe despite his high credit risk, you know there’s bound to be some juicy details in their records. And given the Democrats are now in control of the House, Waters has been able to successfully establish the subpoena power to obtain exactly what she wants.
And now that some of those records are officially in her hands, the upcoming congressional hearings promise to be very entertaining.
