Deutsche Bank tells federal court it can turn over Trump’s tax returns to House Democrats: report

Published

on

On Tuesday, CNN reported that Deutsche Bank, a longtime creditor of President Donald Trump, has informed a federal judge that it possesses tax returns from the president and can hand them over to House Democrats to comply with their subpoena.

It remains unclear whether the courts will allow this, and if so, at what time it will take place.

House Democrats have sought to obtain Trump’s tax returns for months, as part of their oversight role, in response to concerns that the president has conflicts of interests with his family business. The Trump administration has asserted that there is not a legitimate legislative purpose for this request, and has fought the release of these documents at every turn.

GOP senator flops hard when CNN’s Tapper asks him to name one case where Trump cared about foreign corruption

Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) on Friday furiously tried to deflect when CNN's Jake Tapper asked him to name one instance other than Ukraine where President Donald Trump held up foreign aid to a country because he was concerned it was not fighting corruption.

"Yes, I do actually think he's concerned about corruption and the people of Ukraine," the senator replied.

CNN host Alisyn Camerota seemed visibly stunned on Friday morning as a Republican senator spun an elaborate conspiracy theory about Sen. Chuck Schumer by claiming the impeachment trial of Donald Trump is just a cover for the New York Democrat to make himself Senate majority leader.

Defending President  Trump, Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) complained about having to watch videos of House impeachment hearing witnesses multiple times during the Senate impeachment trial, before turning his ire on Schumer.

"You know, Alisyn, what this is about -- and Chuck Schumer has been out front about it -- this isn't about removing the president. It's about Chuck Schumer trying to become the majority leader in the United States Senate," he accused. "He has targeted specific members of the Senate. He has attacked the Senate, the process, the senators [by] running commercials against them."

Fox News scorched for hiding its top legal analyst during impeachment in scathing CNN segment

Published

on

Fox News' coverage of President Donald Trump's impeachment has failed to meet even the lowest of expectations, and CNN's John Avlon on Friday chided the network for not even meeting the bare minimum requirements for keeping its viewers informed.

Avlon started his segment by recounting how Fox News doesn't even show the impeachment trial unfiltered and instead has its right-wing hosts and guests talk over House Democrats while they present their case.

"None of which comes close to addressing the evidence," he said.

Avlon then hammered the network for the conspicuous absence of Andrew Napolitano, who has for years been its top legal analyst and who has become a fierce critic of the president.
