I’m a bit surprised this hasn’t been picked up yet, but maybe it got lost in all the bruhaha over Trump’s disastrous (is there any other kind?) visits to Dayton and El Paso. The Wall St. Journal put up this story this morning, but it’s behind a paywall. Talking Points Memo, however, published their version of it:

Investigators targeting President Trump’s financial and business history may have found a way around the White House’s blocking of congressional subpoenas, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

Banks have been handing over thousands of pages of documents related to business ties between Russians and Trump to congressional committees investigating the President, while other banks have been producing information to New York state investigators probing the Trump org.

One possible clue to how they got around the subpoena suits is the WSJ headline:

   Banks Hand Over Documents on Russians Possibly Linked to Trump  

Some documents are related to Russians who may have had dealings with Mr. Trump, his family or Trump Organization

And by the way, it’s not just Deutsche Bank — though the NY AG has gotten emails, loan agreements and other docs from them.

The banks that have been providing information reportedly include Bank of America, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley, and Wells Fargo.

Although the story broke several hours ago, I don’t think Trump has heard about it yet, as there have been no fires or explosions reported from the vicinity of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Nor has it been picked up by CNN, NYT or WaPo yet. But give them a little time and they should notice.

He is going to go off like a frog in a sock, so get out the most comfortable chair you have, grab a glass of wine, and relax because this is one reaction you won’t want to miss.

However bad any info is, i assume we still have to wait until he’s booted out before any accountability ? That is, a sitting president cannot be indicted.

The only way to really bury the dorkydoofuss is to vote him out of office first.
Then ihe will really have a wall coming down all around him. But there are other things too..no matter how many fell on their swords for him the rat always leaves a trail.

It was on Rachel Maddow last night. I was so excited, I could not sleep for a while, then slept like a baby, with a smile on my face.

What ever happened to this? I am assuming this didnt quite make it to the hands of the Finance Committee and was prevented from happening, as I haven’t heard a word about it anywhere since this article. I was waiting anxiously for evidence of all the corruption to finally be uncovered, and then FINALLY they would have their PROOF to start impeachment.
