Two committees of the US House of Representatives, controlled by the Democrats, sent subpoenas to a number of banks about the finances of the US President Donald Trump.
According to The New York Times, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff, subpoenas became part of the investigation of the potential impact of foreign countries on political processes in the United States. They were sent to Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup, the newspaper sources said.
According to Adam Schiff, he is interested in whether foreign countries, including Russia, tried to influence Donald Trump, his family or his entourage. Sources of the edition claim that congressmen demanded the documents, concerning money laundering from Russia and other countries of Eastern Europe. Schiff said that he was interested in Trump Organization transactions, in which money could be used from Russia.
The son of the US President and Executive Vice President of Trump Organization Eric Trump called the directed agenda “an unprecedented abuse of power” and “the last attempt of Democrats” to attack the head of state and his family for political gain.
