Swalwell: Trump’s ‘Making Foreign Policy Decisions That Are Counter To America’s Moral Leadership in the World’

‘We know he has had Saudi assistance in the past, buying his hotels, bailing him out when he was in bankruptcy and buying a yacht’

RUSH EXCERPT:

SWALWELL: “We’re certainly not in the dark any more because of free press reporting. We have an idea about how alarming this conduct is. But we prioritize what matters. We don’t do things just because we can. We don’t seek to pound the Flesch. We look at what matters to the American people because our national security may be at risk. So the ways and means committee, they’ll be able to get his tax returns. Now, that will also help investigations in the oversight committee, on the Intel committee, on the judiciary Committee. We’re not seeking his tax returns because we have any voyeuristic interest or parlor palace intrigue. It’s really because with the president, we know he has had Saudi assistance in the past, buying his hotels, bailing him out when he was in bankruptcy and buying a yacht. That may instruct just why he’s making foreign policy decisions that are counter to America’s moral leadership in the world.”
