In other news, billionaire Trump friend Jeffrey Epstein has been charged with sex trafficking of minors by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York. Epstein is accused of trafficking girls as young as 14.

Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed a law that could provide Trump's state tax returns to Congress if they request it.

Finally, Duestche Bank is cutting 18,000 jobs, mostly in its investment operations, in a company-wide restructuring.

FRANKFURT/SYDNEY/HONG KONG/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Deutsche Bank laid-off staff from Sydney to New York on Monday as it began 18,000 job cuts in a 7.4 billion euro ($8.3 billion) “reinvention” which will lead to yet another annual loss and knocked its already battered shares.

Germany’s largest lender said on Sunday it would scrap its global equities operations and cut some in fixed income in a retreat from a long-held ambition to make its struggling investment bank, with 38,000 staff, a force on Wall Street.

I don't think it's a coincidence that the investment bank that gave money to Trump is more or less shutting down now.

    I heard this story on NPR yesterday and immediately figured the two actions are not mutually exclusive.

    Put Epstein under the prison.

    Does it even matter anymore? Is there any reason to believe that Trump or any of the sycophantic parasites that work for him will ever be held accountable?
    I know I’m being cynical. I desperately hope I’m wrong.
