Congress Just Got The Trump Treasury Data It’s Been Waiting For

The House Intelligence Committee has just gotten their hands on valuable data from the Treasury Department relating to Trump’s vast business empire. This data will allow the Committee to investigate any links between Trump’s business holdings and Russia.

Senator Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, also confirmed receipt of the same data from the Treasury Department for his committee in the Senate.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat for the House Intelligence Committee, told CNN:

“While I cannot confirm any briefings or requests made by the House Intelligence Committee, I will say that examining financial records and transactions is absolutely crucial to our investigatory effort.”

The Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) is charged with investigating global money laundering crimes. “The agency collects data from banks around the world and is a critical source in identifying how shell companies move money.”

Both the House and Senate Intelligence Committee’s move to access this data comes as the result of calls from both government officials and the American public to “follow the money” in an effort to identify conflicts of interest between the President and Moscow.

While on the campaign trail, candidate Trump promised to release his tax returns. Since taking office, however, he has refused to do so. He may have successfully evaded any accountability thus far, but Trump’s free ride is coming to an abrupt and decisive end.
