There’s breaking news out on Thursday that must have Maxine Waters celebrating.
House Democrats just got a hold on thousands of pages of Trump’s financial records.
From Fox News: 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.
On Wednesday, a federal judge in New York ruled that two other banks, Deutsche Bank and Capital One, were required to comply with congressional subpoenas seeking access to Trump’s financial records.
The House Financial Services Committee and the House Intelligence Committee both have requested the documents from Deutsche Bank and Capital One in their investigations of possible “foreign influence in the U.S. political process.” …
Meanwhile, the House Ways and Means Committee is seeking the president’s tax returns, and has issued subpoenas for the files. …
We’ll take to wait to see what these documents reveal.
If Maxine Waters and House Dems were able to get their hands on Trump’s financial records, then it’s only a matter of time before they get his tax returns, too.
