Last month, Democrats on the House Financial Services Committee sent Deutsche Bank a letter asking it to reveal information about Donald Trump and Russia.
The Democrats didn’t exactly get the answer they were hoping for.
Now, the bank is finally explaining itself—arguing , basically, that it’s against company policy to share the requested information, even if it could potentially shed light on whether or not the president of the United States is beholden to his comrades in Russia for any particular reason.
and a speech at the Department of Transportation that was light on details and heavy on props, literally.
Instead of simply nominating financial services lawyer Keith Noreika for the job, which would have involved a Senate hearing and approval process that would lay bare all his conflicts of interest, the White House made Noreika the “first deputy” at the O.C.C., which meant that he would be given the top job on an interim basis once Curry was canned.
