Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a member of the House Intelligence Committee investigating Russia, said that investigators want to see Trump’s bank records, and they want Steve Bannon to testify about Trump money laundering.
Swalwell said about the bank records on MSNBC’s The Beat With Ari Melber, “We want to see the bank records. We want to understand the financial transactions. A number of people have testified that they’ve used financial entanglements And we know from Donald Trump Jr.’s own mouth, that the Russians were heavily investing. Primarily their investments were coming from Russia… I believe we should follow bank records. I think they would be illuminating for the American people to understand what investments were being made as well as what investments Donald Trump had made in the Russians.”
Rep. Swalwell also said that the investigators want Bannon to testify, “Absolutely, and I hope that the I hope the American people would be able to review his transcript and the transcript of every witness that has come before us.”
Steve Bannon is trying to save his own skin, and would love nothing more than to take out the Trump kids and Jared Kushner along the way. If investigators talk to Steve Bannon, he is giving every signal that he is not going to protect the Trump family. Bannon had to know when he made the comments for the book that investigators were going to want to talk to him. With the very real prospect of Democrats running the investigation in a year, the situation is only going to get worse for Donald Trump.
