Sounds like the bloodhounds are closing in.
The Senate Commitee requested these records late last month from FinCen, which seems to coincide with the timing of when Trump got really agitated and started itching to fire James Comey. It’s been reported that the FBI was starting to close in on financial information, which prompted Trump’s reaction, and that ultimately may prove more damning personally than election collusion.
“WASHINGTON—A Treasury Department unit that specializes in combating money-laundering will share financial records with an expanding Senate probe into possible ties between Russia and President Donald Trump and his associates, according to people familiar with the matter.
The Senate Intelligence Committee requested the records from Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN, late last month, these people said. The people familiar with the matter didn’t specify the nature of those records.”
The Senate panel requested the records from the Treasury unit, known as FinCEN, late last month, sources told the newspaper. The sources didn’t specify the nature of the records, but one source described the records as critical for the panel reaching a conclusion on whether there was any coordination between Trump associates and Russia during the campaign.
Trump has a history with FinCen as they fined him $10mm for money laundering violations at the Taj Mahal (a history of money laundering!!)
and the unit was renewed in February for another 180 days. Trump could have shut it down and there was speculation he would, but I guess he was too busy golfing
And I’ll just leave this here
And just to add a little more fuel to the fire:
The Justice Department requested bank records of President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort as part of the federal investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to a new report.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the Justice Department requested Manafort’s bank records from Citizen Financial Group Inc. in April. It’s unclear whether that was the only bank that was asked to turn over records, according to the report.
