Washington DC and The Holy Land>Adam Schiff announces sweeping investigation into Trump's finances and Russia
Taco John 08:44 PM 02-08-2019




(CNN)House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced Wednesday a broad investigation his committee would undertake "beyond Russia" into whether President Donald Trump's financial interests are driving his actions.

Schiff said the investigation would "allow us to investigate any credible allegation that financial interests or other interests are driving decision-making of the President or anyone in the administration."

"That pertains to any credible allegations of leverage by the Russians or the Saudis or anyone else," Schiff told reporters after the House Intelligence Committee's first meeting in the new Congress.

In a statement, Schiff said the investigation would include a continued probe into Russia's actions during the 2016 election and contacts between the Russia and Trump's team, as well as an examination of "whether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates."

Schiff said the investigation, which could involve additional congressional committees, would also look at whether Trump or his associates have "sought to influence US government policy in service of foreign interests" and any potential obstruction into the various investigations.

Schiff's announcement is the most detailed look yet into how congressional Democrats will investigate Trump's finances and possible ties to foreign entities, and how Democrats are sure to continue probing Trump and his team well after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation had concluded.
Trump reacted Wednesday to Schiff's announcement by slamming the California Democrat and saying Schiff has "no basis to do that."

"He's just a political hack trying to build a name for himself," Trump said in the Roosevelt Room Wednesday after announcing his new nominee to be World Bank president. "It's called presidential harassment and it is unfortunate."

Trump's comments followed his State of the Union speech Tuesday in which he warned Democrats against undertaking "ridiculous partisan investigations."

Schiff responded to Trump's attack on Twitter, saying: "We're going to do our job and won't be distracted or intimidated by threats or attacks.

Yeah this is definitely warranted since it could be assumed Mueller didn't think to investigate it.

Indeed. A team of 75 investigators will be empowered to "check out" the allegation that Donald Trump cheated when he was 11 years old in the Soap Box Derby by adding one drop too many of lube to his rear wheels......charges are expected ASAP.

And this just in - Yet another investigation has begun after an anonymous source came forward to state that "Donald Trump, and an unnamed "co-conspirator", did, when they were both in Elementary School vandalize the lunch room - stealing two cartons of milk".

This shit will never end.....

I'm not really sure how that works, although there's no guarantee that we'll ever see Mueller's report or that he'll be allowed to finish it.

Don't pretend you're upset about it because you think it is overkill, you're afraid what could come of it. I mean, we know for a fact he's lied about this.
"I've had no dealings with Russia" is a flat-out lie. They were working on potential deals at the very least right up to the election.

I mean, it does take some balls to shout about how unfair an investigation is when the subject has flat-out lied about the matter being investigated.

I'm not afraid of anything. What's obvious is you and Schiff are afraid of what Mueller didn't find. The result of that is Schiff running ongoing investigations for political points. Like Mueller didn't think to investigate this path and Schiff will find something he couldn't.

The entire thing is laughable.

Wait a minute.....This just breaking.....It has been confirmed....an Investigation into Donald Trump and the allegation that, at age 5, he did, attempt to buy a "sno-cone" using Monopoly money - thinking the play money was, indeed, real. If this is true, it would be safe to assume that articles of impeachment will be forthcoming from the Left as early as Monday....stay tuned.

So Mueller is a big pushover, but Schiff is a badass that is going to get things done to the approval of the left. Noted.

Not even a little bit. Zero concerns about a partisan investigation that puts an unhinged gay congressmen in the American spotlight to get his fifteen. Take 20, bud - knock yerself out.

Is he not openly gay? This is news to me if he's not.










If he's not openly gay and living it authentically, that's his choice. It makes no difference to me either way.

You elected a criminal and gave him 2+ years.

Time to come back to reality and face justice.

Enjoy.
