Maxine Waters Vows Investigations into Trump’s Finances Will Continue
'Yes. We have not stopped,' Democrat rep warns
Democratic House Financial Services Committee Chair Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has warned she is continuing investigations into President Donald Trump’s finances, despite him leaving office.
During an interview on MSNBC’s “Live," Waters said, "we have not stopped."
Host Melvin asked Waters:
“Your committee notably also subpoenaed former President Trump’s financial documents."
"Will the committee’s investigation into his finances continue?”
Waters replied: “Yes. We have not stopped."
"We will continue," she declared.
"We have some subpoenas that we have issued recently," Waters added.
"We will continue our work."
"I’m very pleased that I think we’re going to have excellent cooperation from Deutsche Bank, who have made their own decisions about not dealing with him anymore as many financial institutions have."
"We are going to continue our work.”
Water's remarks come after Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer confirmed that the House Nancy Pelosi's Speaker would deliver articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate on Monday.
"I've spoken to Speaker Pelosi, who informed me that the article would be delivered to the Senate on Monday," Schumer, D-N.Y., said on Friday.
Earlier this week, Pelosi described President Donald Trump as “a stain on our country” as the president gave his farewell address.
“He denigrated, dishonored the Constitution, denigrated our people, degraded our environment from sea to shining sea, God’s gift to us and beyond that."
"He degraded that, and he again dishonored our values, who we are as a democratic country," Pelosi said.
