Trump sues House Oversight chairman Elijah Cummings over subpoena of financial records

The complaint, filed in federal court in Washington, says the subpoena from Rep. Elijah Cummings “has no legitimate legislative purpose” and accuses Democrats of harassing Drumpf and wielding their new majority in Congress to try to stain the president’s standing.
According to him, the subpoena had no legitimate legislative purpose and served to harass him amid the regained political power in Congress. At least to me, there is a purpose, namely to investigate probable tax evasion cases. There was no real need to hide the tax returns from the public, especially since every sitting president did so in terms of transparency and honesty before the American people.
Interesting, isn't it? The failed businessman trying to hide his tax returns. This screams criminality so loud it's almost ripping my eardrums.
The lawsuit accuses Cummings of failing to consult with Republicans on the panel before issuing the subpoena and says he re

WH adviser Stephen Miller to be told to testify before Senate Democrats

Miller was reportedly the author of the idea of sending foreign detainees to so-called "sanctuary cities" to needle Democratic-governed jurisdictions which have declared they will limit their cooperation with federal authorities seeking to round up and deport immigrants in the country illegally. According to a report in The New York Times, Miller became audibly agitated and frustrated in a conference call with administration officials, angry that so many people seeking refuge in the United States were passing the first legal hurdle of having a "credible fear" of persecution if they were sent back to their home countries. Miller, the Times said, citing others on the call, seemed to want immigration authorities to find a way around the law Congress wrote.

"Steve Miller, who seems to be the boss of everybody on immigration, ought to come before Congress and explain some of these policies," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York, said on CNN's "

HIC Democrats subpoena German lender Deutsche Bank amid Trump investigation

In addition to the Deutsche Bank subpoena, House Democrats subpoenaed other banks — including JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup — seeking information on Russian money laundering. The issuance of the subpoenas was first reported by The New York Times.

“As part of our oversight authority and authorized investigation into allegations of potential foreign influence on the U.S. political process, the House Intelligence Committee today issued subpoenas to multiple financial institutions in coordination with the House Financial Services Committee, including a friendly subpoena to Deutsche Bank, which has been cooperative with the Committees,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the House Intelligence chairman. “We look forward to their continued cooperation and compliance.”

“My colleagues across the aisle continue to politicize the banking industry and set out on partisan fishing expeditions,“ said Rep.

On Cohen's testimony

Now House Democrats plan to use Cohen’s revelations as a blueprint to summon key witnesses and pursue investigative avenues they say their Republican counterparts have ignored. That is likely to trigger a steady flow of public hearings involving those closest to the president as Democrats hunt for more damaging revelations.

As far as I recall, Felix Sater will be the next to testify. We'll see how many more will be subpoenaed in the near future.

Also caught in the midst of those discussions are Donald Jr and Ivanka, two of Drumpf’s children, who Cohen testified were briefed “approximately 10 times” about the project. Donald Jr had previously told the Senate intelligence committee under oath that he was only “peripherally aware” of it, while Ivanka Drumpf claimed ignorance about the plan as recently as last month, stating in an interview she knew “literally almost nothing” about it.

If Drumpf was, in fact, guilty of finance and insurance fraud for lying about his... show more


On Trump's time schedule for the incoming week - less exec. time expected

On the other side in Vietnam, Drumpf will be pursuing a Nobel Peace Prize, convening a second summit and media extravaganza with North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un that will take place despite a lack of genuine progress since their first encounter.

In another sign of the controversy perpetually swirling around this White House, House Democrats will meanwhile vote on Tuesday on a resolution to terminate what they say is Drumpf's "lawless" state of emergency declared to finance his border wall. The move will impose new pressure on Senate Republicans and could eventually draw a presidential veto.

Intimidating witnesses, as Cohen claims the President did, and trying to get a witness to lie to Congress, are offenses that could potentially be investigated in any impeachment proceedings initiated by House Democrats against Drumpf.

HIC chairman Adam Schiff (D - CA) won't stand down if Mueller's team was unable to find evidences of collusion

During an interview on CNN, Schiff discussed at length all the "evidence in plain sight" of collusion he believes there is, but said "it will be up to Mueller to decide if that amounts to criminal conspiracy."

"We're going to have to do our own investigation, and we are. We'll certainly be very interested to learn what Bob Mueller finds. We may have to fight to get that information. Bill Barr has not been willing to commit to provide that report either to the Congress or to the American people. We're going to need to see it," Schiff said on "State of the Union," referring to Drumpf's newly confirmed attorney general.

"You know, I will certainly accept them in this way, Dana. I have great confidence in the special counsel. And if the special counsel represents that he has investigated and not been interfered with and not been able to make a criminal case, then I will believe that he is operating in good faith," Schiff said.... show more

Adam Schiff's HIC announces broad investigation on Trump

Schiff said the investigation would "allow us to investigate any credible allegation that financial interests or other interests are driving decision-making of the President or anyone in the administration."

Schiff said the investigation, which could involve additional congressional committees, would also look at whether Drumpf or his associates have "sought to influence US government policy in service of foreign interests" and any potential obstruction into the various investigations.

Schiff has said that he wanted to send the transcripts to Mueller for review to see whether any other witnesses who appeared before the committee committed perjury. The transcripts are likely to be transmitted by the end of the day, Schiff said.
