Maxine Waters crossed a red line with an abuse of power that will make your blood boil
Donald Trump warned the Democrats.
But Maxine Waters ignored him.
And she just crossed a bright red line by issuing an ultimatum that will make your blood boil.
Waters – as well as other Democrat Committee Chairmen – are pursuing character assassinations by launching this ridiculous fishing expedition about the President and his banks being involved in Russian money laundering.
The House Intelligence and Financial Services committees, which authorized the subpoenas, were expected to issue additional subpoenas targeting Trump’s finances soon, Democratic aides said.
Democrats are ratcheting up their coordinated investigations into Trump’s business dealings as the Justice Department prepares to release findings from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe on Thursday.
“As part of our oversight authority and authorized investigation into allegations of potential foreign influence on the U.S. political process, the House Intelligence Committee today issued subpoenas to multiple financial institutions in coordination with the House Financial Services Committee, including a friendly subpoena to Deutsche Bank, which has been cooperative with the Committees,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the House Intelligence chairman. “We look forward to their continued cooperation and compliance.”
This is an outrageous abuse of power.
Congressional committees are fact-finding bodies.
They are not criminal investigators.
And they don’t have the right to dig through Donald Trump’s finances just because they think there might be something politically embarrassing in there if their criminal allegations turn out to be fraudulent.
During the Mueller Probe, Trump said the special counsel sifting through his business empire was a red line.
Waters and other Democrats are about to barrel over it and this will lead to political war with the President.
