Judge Refuses to Block Bank Subpoenas Seeking President Trump’s Financial Records

Trump hits back at Democratic claims of 'cover-up'

She called Trump's actions Wednesday "very, very, very strange" and said she was "praying" for the country and the president.

"I'll respond to the president, not staff", Pelosi said. "It just doesn't work that way". But within minutes of Pelosi and Schumer arriving, Trump showed them the door.

After Pelosi accused Trump of engaging in a "cover-up" on Wednesday, noting his blockade of congressional investigations, the president attempted to deflect onto her the lack of progress on an issue he has long claimed to care about intensely.

Despite Trump's comments Wednesday about ceasing work with Democrats until investigations end, Sanders said "Staff-level conversations continue" on raising the US debt limit, a critical piece of legislation that will need to be taken up in the coming months.

A two-year investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russia's interference in the 2016 United States election concluded there was no hard evidence Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow. I'd be really good at that - that's what I do. "So get these phoney investigations over".

Congressmen of the blue party promote the realization of the so-called impeachment of the republican ruler due to his presumed cover-up in the investigation on the presidential elections of 2016. By eighth binding subpoenas of the Congress, miss, do, the President may be guilty of a misdemeanor, that could justify impeachment proceedings, said they even.

She added, in a tone of voice suggesting that Trump, if not Washington as a whole, was on the brink of a breakdown, "I pray for the president of the United States".

It's clearly working. During his speech at the White House to discuss a $16 billion aid package to farmers hurt by the escalating trade war with China, the president raged about Pelosi while insisting he was totally fine.

Donald Trump Engaged In "Cover-Up", Says US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Many Democratic politicians have said the alleged orders from Mr Trump could amount to committing the crime of obstruction. This comes after the House Speaker said "we believe the president of the United States is engaged in a cover up".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders knocked Democrats Thursday for their "lunacy" in thinking they can investigate and legislate with the president at the same time.

Trump noted that it would be impossible to work with Democrats "under these circumstances".

"If you have one branch of government disregard the authority of the other branches of government, you are taking away those checks and balances", Jayapal said.

Trump weighed into that debate again early Thursday in a series of tweets.

And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer declared, "It's clear this was not a spontaneous move on the president's part".

Realistic chances of success would not have been an "Impeachment" against Trump, according to the current state anyway - because deposition of the President of the Senate decides, where trump is the Republicans are in the majority.

Most of his fellow Republicans dismiss the investigations as political assaults ahead of the 2020 election.

The lawyers for the House Financial Services and Intelligence committees say they need access to documents from the banks to investigate possible "foreign influence in the U.S. political process" and money laundering. But twice this week, federal judges have refused to block House subpoenas seeking financial records from both Trump's accounting firm and banks that did business with him. On Wednesday, committee Chairman Adam Schiff said the Justice Department had agreed to supply some of the subpoenaed documents, the first indication of a shift in position by that agency.
