Dems seek 10 years of Trump’s financial info — thanks to Michael Cohen’s testimony

Published

on

House Democrats are using former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen’s testimony to justify seeking ten years’ worth of financial information about President Donald Trump.

In a letter sent to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) this week, House Republicans revealed that Democrats had sent document requests to accounting firm Mazars USA LLP about Trump’s finances before he was sworn in as president in 2017.

According to the letter, Democrats are seeking information related to Trump’s failed attempt to purchase the Buffalo Bills football franchise. A bombshell New York Times report from last week claimed that Trump and Cohen together convinced Deutsche Bank to vastly overstate Trump’s personal wealth in financial statements given to the National Football League, which sought assurances that Trump had the kind of financial clout needed to pull off a $1 billion deal.

In their letter to Cummings, House Republicans complained that Democrats were basing their document requests upon the testimony of “convicted perjurer” Cohen, who gave members of Congress details about where to look for potential criminal malfeasance in Trump’s finances.

Read the letter, as posted on Twitter by Politico’s Kyle Cheney, below.

Trump announced that he had issued an executive order on Hong Kong as he predicted decline for the restless city, on which Beijing recently imposed a tough new security law.

Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician and President Donald Trump's onetime nominee for secretary of veterans affairs, has won his bid for the Republican nomination for a solidly red congressional seat in the Texas Panhandle.

With 100% of polling locations reporting, though some mail-in ballots will still need to be counted, Jackson held a lead of 11 percentage points over Josh Winegarner, a veteran agriculture expert and lobbyist. Jackson and Winegarner were competing for a seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Clarendon, who is retiring and held the seat since 1995.
