US Banks turn over mountains of Trump’s financial data to House of Representatives
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.
Letitia James – New York’s attorney general – has reportedly gotten information about loans to the Trump org, potentially offering a tantalizing view of the notoriously opaque group’s financial makeup.
A joint investigation by the House Financial Services and Intelligence committees hit a roadblock in May after Trump sued to block subpoenas issued to two of his longtime lenders – Deutsche Bank and Capital One. Those subpoenas targeted information on the financial history of Trump himself, that of his immediate family, and of his closely held business entities.
The NY AG is cooperating with the House, sharing EVERY PIECE OF PAPER she has.
Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok sue for having been fired without cause
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is suing the Department of Justice over his 2018 firing, which came just over 24 hours before he planned to retire, alleging the punishment was “politically motivated and retaliatory.”
The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court in Washington.
Meanwhile, former Special Agent Peter Strzok has filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against Attorney General Bill Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray, as well as the Justice Department and FBI, over Strzok’s dismissal from the FBI and the release of Strzok’s text messages with then-FBI employee Lisa Page. The complaint alleges violations of Strzok’s First Amendment and due process rights, as well as a violation of the Privacy Act concerning the release of the text messages.
And the best part is this: The federal judge hearing these two cases is the same judge who is putting Roger Stone in the slammer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Charlottesville Nazis: Job loss, jail . . . and they deserve every bit of it
It’s been two years since neo-Nazis marched with Tiki torches in Charlottesville, Virginia, and a new report from the Anti-Defamation League has found that many of the marchers have not fared well since that fateful weekend in August 2017.
The ADL this week published a “Where Are They Now?” guide to the 2017 Charlottesville demonstrators and found that a good deal of them suffered from various repercussions for their actions, including “imprisonment, job loss, de-platforming — or banning users who violate their terms of service — on social media platforms, travel bans and rejection by friends and family.”
Among those who saw their lives ruined by their participation in the rally are three former active-duty Marines who were discharged by the Marine Corps after they were discovered marching in Charlottesville.
The report also found that more than a dozen “Unite the Right” marchers have since been imprisoned for various crimes, most notable Ohio resident James Alex Fields, Jr., who was convicted of murdering counter-protester Heather Heyer after he plowed his car into a group of people; he was sentenced to life in prison.
