The most famous adage in Washington scandals is probably “Follow the money.” Disappointingly, if perhaps not surprisingly, congressional Republicans seem resistant to doing that when it comes to President Donald Trump and the investigation into Russia’s interference into the U.S. political system.
“I don’t see the link at this stage,” Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican leading the House Russia investigation, told CNN. “Deutsche Bank is a German bank – I don’t see the nexus.”
Asked about exploring Russian-Trump business transactions, Conaway was not moved. “I bet every big bank has a Russian customer somewhere,” he said.
