Democrats who will soon take control of the House Intelligence Committee are hiring money-laundering and forensic accounting experts to investigate Donald Trump's financial ties to Russia.


Three sources who spoke to the Daily Beast revealed that the panel intends to hire the experts, and one confirmed that Democrats on the committee are doing so "to examine unanswered financial questions about Trump and Russia."

The experts would also work with the panel on all of the topics before the panel, the source told the Beast.

The report noted that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the likely pick to take over the committee, has signaled in the past his interest in investigating Trump's relationship to Germany-based Deutsche Bank.

Deutsche Bank loaned money to Trump at times when other lenders wouldn't, the report noted, and the president may still owe it money.
