Trump Reaches Deal with House Oversight Committee on Financial Records

Donald Trump’s attorneys have reached an agreement with the House Oversight and Reform Committee over its years-long battle to obtain the former president’s financial records.

In 2019, the committee subpoenaed the records as part of a larger investigation to assess if Trump engaged in conflicts of interest, self-dealing, or foreign financial ties. In July three federal judges moved to uphold the 2019 subpoena for the financial records, but with a more narrow scope than Democrats initially sought after.

According to The Washington Examiner:

“After numerous court victories, I am pleased that my Committee has now reached an agreement to obtain key financial documents that former President Trump fought for years to hide from Congress,” Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) said in a statement. “After facing years of delay tactics, the Committee has now reached an agreement with the former President and his accounting firm, Mazars USA, to obtain critical documents. These documents will inform the Committee’s efforts to get to the bottom of former President Trump’s egregious conduct and ensure that future presidents do not abuse their position of power for personal gain.”

The agreement comes after a long-standing legal battle between the committee and Trump, with the former president unsuccessfully attempting to challenge the panel’s subpoena for eight years of financial documents from his accounting firm, Mazars, after his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, accused him of committing fraud while testifying before Congress.

The notice does not affect Democrats on the Ways and Means Committee’s court battle to obtain Trump’s tax returns.

  1. Trump didn’t “fold”, this is a carefully timed release. Congress plays checkers, Trump plays 5 – D chess. This is going to end up making congress look like the crooked idiots they are.

    • Yes indeed: for those who are clever enough to see through and beyond the labyrinth of smoke and mirrors! Sadly, many of the rest of the populace (sheeple or mushrooms on two legs) will simply read the slanted headlines and conclude: ‘Ah yes, so Trump was a crook!’

  2. They are so afraid of Trump that they’ll continue trying to find something, anything, they can pin on him so he can’t run again. What a country we live in!! Remember when we used to be free?a

    • We concur, they are afraid he will expose all their corruptions. Trump got rich from his work and investments, and his enemies got rich from politics on government salary? How did Obama become multimillionaire in 8 years with no business othr than politics? And also Biden, what did they selll?

  3. They are so afraid of Trump that they’ll continue trying to find something, anything, they can pin on him so he can’t run again. What a country we live in!! Remember when we used to be free?

    This is not a repeat. Stop the censoring.

  4. What are they kidding! Not for one second do I believe the Congress is doing this so that “no other future President do not abuse their position of power for personal gain” CAN ANYONE SAY: “HUNTER BIDEN’S LAPTOP FROM HELL” ALONG WITH THE “BIG GUY” ! That’s what Congress should be looking into that’s what was so EGREGIOUS! Vote them out! Flood the polls in person on the day of election!

  5. They are SO concerned about Trump having personal gain from his position, but in the case of the Biden crime family, there is already lots of EVIDENCE of dirty foreign dealings, but there are NO Democrat Congressional subpoenas for Biden’s financial records!! It’s beyond disgusting!
    THIS IS THE SWAMP TRUMP WAS TALKING ABOUT!!!!

  6. These pathetic cowards are stooping to anything to stop our President Trump from holding office again.They are wasting Our Tax Dollars as usual in their witch hunt.Nothing like lying,thieving,communists stealing your election and ruining your country with their failed BS!
    GET OUT AND VOTE PEOPLE..IF YOU HAVE TO CRAWL TO DO IT..DO IT!

  7. I don’t recall all this bull shit over Obamas’ millions. I also don’t recall years of investigations into his sealed records. I don’t believe he was actually a legal president or that anything he signed is legally binding.

  8. I agree 200%. We need our president TRUMP. He was right in everything he did.his personal life is his, not to be torn apart by the idiots in power now. They don’t know what is right for our country only for themselves. We must vote for our excellent president TRUMP.
    Our name is MUD in some countries because if the horrible doings of Biden. It can only get worse if he tries to run again. He’s as crooked as a corkscrew. His family should be in jail for the thievery they have been doing. They are a disgrace to the human race.

  9. Why and how can they continue to do these things?
    OH, they can keep it up, they make Trump more popular with each of the
    witch hunts. They have never done this to other presidents.
    Makes one wonder why they are so afraid of him?????
    If he does decide to run in 2024, and you thought 2020 was corrupt, Communist China
    could learn from 2024.

  10. As we know from the video on YouTube, shouldn’t they be investigating the blackmail by Biden to the President of the Ukraine when he was Vice President? We know that of the $50,000 a month Hunter was getting from the company in question, that 10% went to Joe and 10% to good old Uncke Jim.
    Seems to me that when the evidence is right before them, that an investigation should almost be over ( if it was ever started)

  11. Amazaing the comment to find all Trumps foreign ties, conflict of interests and all I have read about J&H, Hilliary and Bill, Nancy P and others. Guiltless? I guess it takes one to know one. Have they given all their paychecks back to the government? Since they have made so much in their dealings then it is time to give back and made to make all these lawyers right by the harassment that Trump has gone thruQ

  12. All of the above comments are exactly the sentiments I have. Donald Trump will run circles around the dems who absolutely insist he is crooked. And yet the Obamas and the Bidens and the Clintons are so corrupt. He has had a good time stalling all this times and piquing their interest all the more. I hope we are all right and he will have the last laugh. And then turn the tables on the swamp once and for all.
