The chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee revealed what she is investigating by subpoenaing Donald Trump’s records held by Deutsche Bank.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was interviewed on Friday my MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

“The documents that have been subpoenaed, can you sort of broadly describe them?” Hayes asked. “What is the goal here and what are the categories of documents you are seeking.”

“We are absolutely concerned about money laundering,” Waters replied.

But that is not all her committee is investigating.

“We concerned about illicit funds, we are concerned the loans he has gotten from Deutsche bank,” she continued. “No other bank would lend him money and he sued Deutsche Bank at one point, but Deutsche Bank has been lending him and his family huge sums of money and at the time of his election, he owed them about $300 million.”

“And so we want to understand that relationship, we want to understand his relationship to Russia. We want to understand his finances and financing,” she added.

No one can believe this GOP senator’s embarrassing ad is real

Published

Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia is in a tough race to keep her seat, and at least so far, it seems she’s not sending her best.

Her latest ad baffled many observers, prompting some to genuinely question whether the clip was real. It’s production quality and corniness are so over the top and unprofessional, it’s hard to believe it’s from a sitting senator. And the messaging itself is so hamfisted and unsubtle that it’s hard to imagine it’s an appealing ad for voters, even in Republican-leaning Georgia.

The ad starts with a couple sitting on a sofa talking about how conservative Loeffler is. OK. But then it goes off the rails when it literally says that Loeffler is “more conservative than Attila the Hun.” Yes, really. And it only gets worse.
