[Ed. – We needn’t worry about this creating problems for Trump. He’ll survive this too. But the precedent being set for America is a fatal one. The Democrats have signed the death warrant for the current Republic in which they have a secure status. This one, you don’t walk back. One way or another, the only recovery from this lawless abuse of power now is through a reset that has to take down whole institutions. I suspect, given Trump’s record of surviving their onslaughts, that it’s the House Democrats themselves who will collapse before our eyes.]
Wells Fargo and TD Bank have turned over President Trump’s financial records to the House Financial Services Committee, Fox News confirmed on Thursday, amid a contentious legal battle between the Trump administration and congressional Democrats seeking access to sensitive files.
The committee, led by Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is one of several panels that have issued subpoenas and requests for Trump’s financial files.
NBC News first reported that Wells Fargo turned over a few thousand documents to the committee, and TD Bank provided a handful.
The banks are two of the nine financial institutions with which congressional Democrats are seeking cooperation. The push has led to an escalating legal battle on multiple fronts.
