Rep. Maxine Waters Calls On Deutsche Bank To Release Information About Trump’s Dealings With Russia: “Reputation For Money Laundering”


Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) tells CNBC why she along with other House Democrats are asking Deutsche Bank for documents related to President Trump's financial accounts.

Fmr. Clinton Campaign Manager Mook: “Reporting” Indicates That Trump Fired Comey To Stop Russia Investigation


Clinton 2016 campaign manager Robby Mook told CNBC Wednesday morning that the news of FBI Director James Comey being fired by President Trump is "disturbing" and "frightening." Mook also cited anonymous "reporting" which calls into question Trump's motives and suggests a cover-up related to Russia. "There were serious question raised about how he handled this, but the same day we find out subpoenas are going out relevant to the Russia investigation into Trump's campaign, he decides to fire the director of the FBI because he claims he is upset about how he handeled Hillary Clinton's emails. It is absurd!" Mook said. "All the reporting indicates this came out of frustration from President Trump about the Russia investigation. This is all 'reporting.' This isn't information I have myself. The president was continually pushing on the FBI to stop looking into Russia…and they wouldn't do that… and that is why Director Comey was let go. I'll be honest with you: I'm stunned with the timing of this," he also said.

George Will: I Have A Feeling That O’Reilly Is Replaceable


George Will delivers commentary on the departure of Bill O'Reillyat FOX News in an appearance on CNBC. "Well, the question is, are they loyal to Bill O'Reilly or are they loyal to the FOX brand itself," Will said of O'Reilly viewers. "When Megyn Kelly left and they put Tucker Carlson in her slot nothing happened. The ratings stayed strong, and the viewers were happy. I have a feeling that Mr. O'Reilly is replaceable. As Charles de Gaulle said, the graveyards are full of indispensable men." You may recall, Bill O'Reilly and George Will entered a feud in late 2015 when the FOX News host called the then-FOX News contributor a "hack." In 2016, O'Reilly said he "destroyed" George Will.

Evelyn Farkas: I Was Concerned About Russian Meddling “Cover-Up” By Trump After The Election


Former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas talked to CNBC to elaborate controversial comments she made in an appearance on Morning Joe about surveillance on the Trump for president campaign. Farkas' remarks, originally made in early March, are making waves this week as accusations of Russian influence on the 2016 U.S. presidential election are being investigated. In an interview with Hugh Hewitt, Trump White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said he would "dig into" her "incredible" statement. "We were having a transition of power from the Obama administration to the Trump administration," Farkas said Thursday. "If indeed there was an investigation ongoing, if indeed there was information the Obama administration had about Russian interference and possible American involvement, I wanted to make sure Congress knew about it." "I was afraid of a cover-up," she added.
