Six Republican leaders of congressional committees with a stake in the Russia investigation told CNN that they have no intention of investigating the finances of President Trump or his family. Their statements come as top Democrats have begun to push the issue, calling Trump's potential financial links to Russia a key part of any investigation.

QuoteI don't see the link at this stage. Deutsche Bank is a German bank — I don't see the nexus. ... I bet every big bank has a Russian customer somewhere.
— Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX), leader of the House Russia investigation, to CNN
