House Dems hire veteran prosecutor who battled the Russian mob as they ramp up Trump investigations

Published

on

House Democrats have hired a former Manhattan prosecutor that specialized in Russian organized crime for their investigation into President Donald Trump.

The New Yorker‘s Jeffrey Toobin reported Tuesday that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has hired Daniel Goldman, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, to lead the panel’s investigations.

Goldman, Toobin noted, “convicted individuals associated with Russian organized crime of securities fraud and health-care fraud, and convicted leading figures in the Genovese crime family of racketeering and murder.”

The prosecutor’s hiring “comes amid a flurry of investigative activity” by House Democrats, the columnist wrote, noting that Schiff and House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) are coordinating an investigation into Trump’s relationship with Deutsche Bank.

Additionally, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) on Monday revealed that the committee “demanded testimony and documents from eighty-one people and entities close to Trump relating to the issues of obstruction of justice and abuse of power,” Toobin wrote.

“All of these investigations appear to be much closer to the beginnings of their efforts than their ends,” he concluded.
