Cohen told Congress that Sekulow encouraged him to give false info to Congress re #Ivanka

judge denied Trump’s bid to quash DEMs’ subpoena for years of his financial recs from his acct’g firm, & declined Trump’s request to stay his order pending their appeal.

Cohen testified publicly in January before the HOC that Sekulow was among Trump's personal lawyers who reviewed & edited his statement to Congress

Mehta's decision is a sweeping repudiation of Trump's claim to be largely immune from congressional investigation.

The Judge’s argument emphasizes lawmakers have the authority to investigate any of Trump's conduct --even from before he takes office.

Brilliant EG points out:

BEFORE THE INAUGURATION: FBI, NSA, FinCen, DNI, & DOJ opened probes into possible covert Kremlin aid to Trump

In 2016 & 2017 Deutsche Bank Staff Saw Suspicious Activity in Trump & Kushner accts & prepped SARS & reported same to DB execs.

Deutsche Bank ignored staff concerns & failed to file the SARS with FINCEN, which reflects the bank’s lax approach to 💰💦 laws

Some of the transactions involved 💰 flowing back & forth w/ overseas entities or individuals, which bank employees considered suspicious

And said it was part of a pattern of the bank’s execs rejecting valid reports to protect relationships with lucrative clients.

Trump Org currently has “no operating accounts with DB.” She did not respond when asked if other Trump entities had accounts.

The Flynn revelations are so important:

Sater said in written remarks to lawmakers that he “provided crucial intelligence information” about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida “before and after the 9/11 attacks.”

Trump boasted he “pointed” out OBL before the 2001 World Trade Center attacks in one of his books

Most of Sater’s cooperation with the gov’t still remains officially secret.

"Trump has weakened NATO, given Russia an increasingly free hand in Syria, minimized sanctions against Russian actors, questioned America’s commitment to protecting Eastern Europe from Russian aggression and defended Putin on the world stage."

RU attacked us. The MR still doesn’t give us the full story.

If not for significant political resistance, he may have provided sanctions relief, recognized RU’s seizure of Crimea, returned RU diplomatic residences & weakened the enforcement of the Magnitsky Act.

📌Trump gained an ally in Putin in his effort to damage HRC, benefited from Russian disinfo, & explored personal financial rewards.

📌Trump clearly crossed a line and can be objectively labeled an agent of a foreign power in the standard definition of the word.

🏆Power of Oversight🏆

Upon carrying out its Constitutional obligations of oversight, it is up to Congress—not Bill Barr and not Robert Mueller—to determine if Trump is fit to be president and whether or not any of his behavior rises to the level of impeachment.


“The conclusion that Congress may apply the obstruction laws to the President’s corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our Constitutional system of checks and balances and the principles that no person is above the law.”

Sounds like an impeachment referral.

The Mueller report paints a very damning portrait of Trump.

It paints a picture of someone who knew RU was interfering, invited that interference, & then did everything in his power to stop the inv’n into that interference.

Barr briefed & had numerous convos w/ WH re MR so they had time to strategize & prep a rebuttal while withholding it from American public.

The delay was necessary so Trump’s lawyers could strategize & prepare the rebuttal & control the narrative ahead of public release.

Nadler is deeply troubled to hear the WH was briefed abt the MR b/4 congress or the American people.
