Maxine Waters Prepares to Investigate Donald Trump’s Personal Finances
House Democrats are staffing up with people that have the right expertise to follow each of the investigative threads the respective Committees are pursuing -- including House Financial Services Chair Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA). She recently brought on board an investigator who oversaw the Senate’s probes into Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, and HSBC, and has extensive insight into money laundering issues and international banks and their regulators. The move comes as Waters and Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) have agreed to work together on a probe of Trump’s relationship with Deutsche Bank. Politico reports that Waters will begin her inquiry into the "Trump money trail" with the bank. She also intends to look further into Trump's finances to figure out "whether or not money laundering has been involved and whether or not there are connections with the oligarchs of Russia."
