Capital One Says ‘NO’ to Democrats on Trump Financial Records

The top Democrat Committee leaders requested President Trump’s financial records in the past week, and they’ve now heard a response from Capital One financial.

As reported by, last month three top House of Representatives democrats, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) requested  documentation from Capital One Bank related to the President’s business holdings.

Capital One responded that they are preserving the records but “given the confidentiality obligations we have as a financial institution, including under state and federal law we respectfully request that any production of materials be made pursuant to a subpoena rather than an informal request.”

House Oversight Committee Member Rep. Harley Rouda (D-CA) reacted on the Capital One response saying that it was a reasonable response from that company and that this is now part of an ongoing investigation. “We need to use subpoena power if those are the records that we [Democrats] want to bring in into investigation,” said Rep. Rouda.

The democrats of course are on a fishing expedition. You cannot go looking for a crime, you have to have evidence of a crime, and then put a case together. They are literally bypassing due process altogether.
