Skip to comments.House intelligence chair announces sweeping investigation into Trump's finances and Russia

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced Wednesday a broad investigation his committee would undertake "beyond Russia" into whether President Donald Trump's financial interests are driving his actions.
Schiff said the investigation would "allow us to investigate any credible allegation that financial interests or other interests are driving decision-making of the President or anyone in the administration." "That pertains to any credible allegations of leverage by the Russians or the Saudis or anyone else," Schiff told reporters after the House Intelligence Committee's first meeting in the new Congress. In a statement, Schiff said the investigation would include a continued probe into Russia's actions during the 2016 election and contacts between the Russia and Trump's team, as well as an examination of "whether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates."
Schiff said the investigation, which could involve additional congressional committees, would also look at whether Trump or his associates have "sought to influence US government policy in service of foreign interests" and any potential obstruction into the various investigations.
Schiff's announcement is the most detailed look yet into how congressional Democrats will investigate Trump's finances and possible ties to foreign entities, and how Democrats are sure to continue probing Trump and his team well after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation had concluded.

I guess this means that theres now officially no there, there on the Russia hoax...
What if the GOP members simply boycott the meetings? And the witnesses all take the 5th?
I hope they call Hillary and Bill in to testify.
Adam Schitt living down to his nickname.
The Senate should do parallel investigations of the Democratic leadership and release all relevant government files.
Russia, Russia, Russia is out of gas, they have to make up something else.
“any credible allegation “
Guess that means anything they want to do.
Executive branch should “Unleash the Hounds of War”.
Scorched earth for every Committee chair that goes along with the witch hunt.
Torch them all.
Let’s teach the Democrats what REAL “Resistance” is all about...
Odd, how they are totally disinterested in the Clintons’ finances...................
Sounds like these people really need to be investigating Hillary.
Make the Dems look Bad and they investigate you ,LOL
Thats just another load of Schiff.
Schitt is still sore about the Americans winning in 2016.
Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."
President Trump must have really scared them.
Guess Schiff has no faith in the Mueller investigation.
Seems Schiff himself has a few skeletons that should be looked into...
In a perfect world...
You just know this guy is dirty. Wish someone could prove it.
