Maxine Waters has one stated goal for the next two years:
Impeach Donald Trump.
And Waters is about to cross a bright red line to make that a reality.
As Chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee, Waters has subpoena power over banks.
And she intends to use that ability to target Donald Trump’s personal finances.
House Democrats are planning to cross one of President Donald Trump’s red lines: investigating his personal finances.
With special counsel Robert Mueller expected to wind up his work soon, Democrats are launching an investigation to discover why Deutsche Bank was willing to lend the Trump Organization money when other banks wouldn’t and whether Russia was involved.
The German bank, which has been under scrutiny for its role in Russian money laundering, lent Trump hundreds of millions of dollars over the years for his property development ventures.
The House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees have been staffing up for their probes into the bank and Trump’s Russia ties.
Democrats on the panels say that with Deutsche Bank they are willing to pursue a key area that Mueller may have avoided — crossing what Trump sees as a “red line” into his personal finances.
Democrats are fixated on the idea that Deutsche Bank and the Trump Organization are tied up in a money laundering scheme that possibly involves the Russian government.
Even Robert Mueller – who has most likely seen Trump’s tax returns – passed on this insane conspiracy theory.
But Democrats are going to chase down every rabbit hole possible in order to get Trump.
Even if they find nothing, they can tie the President up for months in a wild goose chase where the fake news media will surely cover this story in the harshest and most negative light possible.
