That’s it for me tonight! Here’s what happened Wednesday evening in politics:
- Trump’s accounting firm has agreed to hand over 10 years of the president’s financial documents, if subpoenaed. The House Oversight chairman, Elijah Cummings, promised that one is coming soon.
- Senate Republicans used the ‘nuclear option’ to narrowly push through changes to Senate rules that would allow them to expedite appointees — over the objections from the minority party.
- The President’s tax returns have been officially requested by Richard Neal, a Democrat who heads the ways and means committee. A battle is expected, but Trump acted unconcerned when pressed by reporters.
- After the Guardian exposed financial issues with Stephen Moore, Trump’s new pick for the Federal Reserve, House Democrats are requesting for more information.
- In a new report from The New York Times, anonymously sourced investigators who worked on the Mueller report expressed concerns over how the Trump-appointed attorney general, William Barr, softened their findings.
