Maxine Waters is at the tip of the spear in the Democrats’ efforts to drive President Trump from office.
And after months of banging their heads against the wall in frustration, Waters and her allies saw their fortunes change.
That’s because Maxine Waters scored the one court victory that could lead to Trump’s impeachment.
The Maxine Waters-led Financial Services Committee sued Deutsche Bank and other financial institutions that did business with President Trump so they could gain access to his financial statements.
President Trump’s lawyers sued and during the court hearing to resolve this matter Deutsche Bank refused to answer questions about having possession of Donald Trump’s tax returns.
The judge ordered the bank to answer the question and Deutsche Bank provide written confirmation that they do indeed have some of the President’s tax returns in their records.
President Donald Trump’s longtime bank revealed Tuesday that it has tax records Congress is seeking in its investigation of the president’s finances.
Deutsche Bank said in court papers it has tax returns responsive to a subpoena sent this year, in which Congress asked the bank for a host of documents related to Trump and his family.
Trump has long declined to release his tax returns and wants to block two House committees from getting the records, calling their document requests unlawful.
A federal appeals court ordered Deutsche Bank to say whether or not Trump’s tax returns were in its possession after an attorney for the bank refused to answer that question during a hearing last week.
Democrats believe President Trump’s tax returns are the Rosetta Stone that will unlock a host of financial crimes that will ultimately lead to Donald Trump’s impeachment.
Deutsche Bank’s admission puts the Democrats one step closer to that goal.
