Senate intel committee probing over 2,000 Trump docs from Treasury Dept. financial crimes unit: report

Published

on

The Senate intelligence committee is combing through a trove of more 2,000 documents regarding the finances of President Donald Trump and his associates, a report by Bloomberg reveals. They received the documents from the Department of Justice’s financial crimes unit.

According to the report, the intelligence committee’s investigation of potential collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia is now “focused sharply” on transactions of the president’s associates, ostensibly to find evidence of payments made to or from Kremlin-backed firms or individuals.

In addition to the more than 2,000 documents they received from the Treasury, Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA) told Bloomberg their investigation is “entering a higher profile phase” as they prepare to interview the president’s associates like his son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner.

In the meantime, the report noted, Democrats in the House have accused both the Treasury and Republicans of stonewalling as they attempt to gather information for their investigation into Trump’s alleged presidential improprieties.

Maddow warns Russia is interfering in the 2020 election in ‘exactly the same way’ as they did in 2016

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Monday warned that Russia and the Republicans are running the "exact same play" against Democrats in 2020 -- and this time will be aided by the United States Justice Department.

"And they are playing it again already for the next election. And some of it is happening just like it did in 2016. And some of it is worse and I think it’s going to be more powerful than it was in 2016. In part because this is a second draft for these guys, right? They ran this play in 2016. They worked out some of the kinks," she explained. "Now they’ll do it again with the benefit of knowing what worked for them and what didn’t work the first time around. It’s a second draft. It’s going to be better and more polished."

Marco Rubio says it was a ‘bad look’ for Trump to pick Doral for G7 — after several days of defending the decision

On Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) admitted that it was a "bad look" for President Donald Trump to call for hosting the next annual G7 summit at the Trump National Doral golf resort in Miami, Florida:

“Obviously you know, given everything that's going on, it was a bad look,” Rubio said of G7 at Doral, though he doubts Trump wanted to make money. “As a Floridian I thought it was great that they were going to come down, especially in June when we don't have as many visitors."

‘You lost’: Internet mocks Trump for cheering on ‘great vote’ — that Republicans lost

Published

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who sits on the House Intelligence Committee accidentally mistook a satirical article with a fake transcript of President Donald Trump's call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25. While Schiff apologized for the error, Trump has called for his immediate impeachment.

Impeachment is outlined in the U.S. Constitution and the section of the founding document gives examples of what they meant by "high crimes and misdemeanors." It does not cite accidentally reading the wrong transcript aloud. Members of Congress cannot be impeached and censure is a toothless resolution that is meaningless.
