House Democrats subpoenaed nine large banks this week in connection with an investigation into President Trump’s financial ties, according to a report.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., on Monday said the subpoenas were related to potential “foreign influence in the U.S. political process,” including whether Russians laundered money through the Trump Organization.

The banks include JPMorgan Chase &Co., Citigroup Inc., Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo & Co., Bank of America, Capital One Financial Group, Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Canada and Toronto-Dominion Bank, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The House Financial Services Committee and House Intelligence Committee have already been in a “productive dialogue” with Deutsche Bank, which has loaned the president and his companies more than $2 billion over the years.

Iran has showcased domestically made fighter jets by flying the aircraft over Tehran during a military parade marking National Army Day.

State TV broadcast footage of the aircraft performing during the parade on Thursday.

The planes include the latest all-Iranian fighter jet, dubbed Kowsar, which in Islamic meaning refers to a river in paradise and is also the title of a chapter in the Muslim holy book, the Quran.

The twin-seated Kowsar — modelled after American F-5 fighter jet — was inaugurated in 2017, when the TV aired images of President Hassan Rouhani briefly sitting in the plane’s cockpit inside a hangar before the ceremony.

The parade also showcased the Saegheh, or “Thunderbolt,” another domestically built fighter plane. Iran’s air force already has U.S.-made and Russian-made Sukhoi aircraft in service.

A German pastor working on Madeira is praising the medics who cared for the survivors of the bus crash on the Portuguese island that killed 29 people.

Ilse Everlien Berardo told German broadcaster n-tv Thursday the survivors she spoke to were “very calm. Of course, they were in a state of shock.”

The bus carrying 55 people, many of them vacationers from Germany, rolled down a steep hillside Wednesday after veering off the road on a bend east of the capital, Funchal, striking at least one house.

Berardo said the “the nurses and doctors were really touching in the way they dealt with the people.”

Berardo said she spoke to one woman who thought she might have lost her partner, adding. “what I can do is hold their hand and show them they’re not alone.”

South Korean police are investigating a 42-year-old man accused of setting his apartment on fire and stabbing neighbors trying to flee, killing five people and injuring 13 others.

The violence Wednesday in the city of Jinju shocked the nation. Prime Minister Lee Nak-yeon criticized police Thursday for what he saw as a failure to properly monitor a person known for past violence and clashes with neighbors.

City police say the suspect aggressively resisted arrest and has a history of mental illness. But they say he has not given a coherent statement on what happened Wednesday.

An illegal immigrant from Mexico got pulled over this week in Ohio with a 15-year-old girl — who turned out to be a child sex slave from New Jersey, according to cops.

Juan Carlos Morales-Pedraza, 33, is accused of abducting the teen in Paterson, NJ, and sexually assaulting her. He was on his way to Chicago when a state trooper stopped him Tuesday on the Ohio Turnpike for a failure to move over violation, cops said.

“During the stop, OSHP says the officer noticed a young female riding with an older male,” tweeted the Ohio State Highway Patrol. “Police say it was also confirmed that the man had forced the girl to perform acts on him and that the girl was being taken to Chicago from New Jersey.”

Morales-Pedraza — who is charged with abduction — was driving a 2013 Nissan Sentra when he got pulled over near Toledo, cops said. Both he and the girl were unable to speak English.

It wasn’t until authorities entered the teen’s information into the police database that they discovered she had been listed as missing. State officials told reporters that Morales-Pedraza had been living in the U.S. illegally and was previously deported. He was still being held Tuesday night at the Lucas County Jail.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was criticized on social media Wednesday over a comment he made about Disney’s $5 million donation to restore the scorched Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

The Walt Disney Company, which was among a handful of corporations that pledged to help rebuild the almost 900-year-old cathedral after it was damaged in a devastating fire earlier this week, announced a $5 million contribution early Wednesday.

Responding to the news a few hours later, Cruz joked whether the cathedral’s restoration will include Disney princesses on the new stained glass.

MACRON’S VOW TO REBUILD NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL WITHIN 5 YEARS UNREALISTIC, SOME EXPERTS SAY

Within hours, thousands on Twitter condemned Cruz for what they regarded as a joke that fell flat.

In announcing their contribution, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger discussed the cathedral’s prominent role in the city’s history.

“Notre-Dame is a beacon of hope and beauty that has defined the heart of Paris and the soul of France for centuries, inspiring awe and reverence for its art and architecture and for its enduring place in human history,” Iger said in the statement. “The Walt Disney Company stands with our friends and neighbors in the community, offering our heartfelt support as well as a $5 million donation for the restoration of this irreplaceable masterpiece.”

Former Rwanda rebel group leader accused of war crimes dies

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Former Rwanda rebel group leader accused of war crimes dies fox-news/world/world-regions/europe fox-news/world/world-regions/africa fox-news/world fnc/world fnc Berlin Associated Press article 766a73d4-a8ad-56d3-ab4f-be3be7021f35

The former head of a Rwandan rebel group has died in Germany while awaiting retrial on war crimes charges, a court says.

Ignace Murwanashyaka, the former president of the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda, was convicted by a Stuttgart court in 2015 of leading a terrorist organization and four counts of being an accessory to war crimes in eastern Congo a decade ago. He was sentenced to 13 years imprisonment, but the verdict was overturned last year and a retrial was pending.

The Stuttgart court said on Wednesday that Murwanashyaka’s health deteriorated suddenly on April 11. He was transferred to a hospital, where he later died. The court declined to provide further details, citing patient confidentiality.

The FDLR’s vice president, Straton Musoni, was given an eight-year sentence for his role in the group. That verdict wasn’t overturned.

Murwanashyaka’s lawyers argued during the trial that he had merely been the group’s political figurehead and hadn’t controlled its military wing.

Prosecutors in Germany, where Murwanashyaka had lived since the 1980s, argued he had issued remotely instructions to FDLR members in Congo by phone, text message and email. The group carried out killings in the Congolese villages of Mianga, Busurungi, Chiriba and Manje in 2009.

The rebel group is made up mostly of Hutu refugees from Rwanda who took shelter in neighboring Congo after the 1994 genocide in which over 800,000 people were killed, most of them ethnic Tutsis but also moderate Hutus.

Ann Coulter says she’d consider vote for Bernie Sanders

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5854120370001_5854117348001-vs Ann Coulter says she’d consider vote for Bernie Sanders Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox news fnc/politics fnc article 232d5e31-ca19-571d-91b7-b0a16ae9f199

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter said she could support Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, in 2020 and even floated the idea of working in his administration if he returned to his earlier stance on immigration.

In a preview clip of PBS’s “Firing Line with Margaret Hoover” released Wednesday, host Margaret Hoover asked Coulter how she viewed the progressive senator. She asked whether she would support him if he campaign on “getting rid of low-skilled workers” to ensure higher wages.

FOX NEWS POLL: TRUMP APPROVAL STEADY SINCE MUELLER PROBE ENDED

“If he went back to his original position, which is the pro-blue-collar position. I mean, it totally makes sense with him,” she said. If he went back to that position, I’d vote for him. I might work for him. I don’t care about the rest of the socialist stuff. Just– can we do something for ordinary Americans?”

Coulter was apparently referencing Sanders’ policy position from 2007 where he opposed an immigration reform bill that he feared would drive down wages for lower-income workers. He co-authored a restrictive immigration amendment with Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-IA. The bill ultimately failed to pass the Senate.

Sanders rejected the idea of having open borders while speaking at a campaign event earlier this month.

“What we need is comprehensive immigration reform. If you open the borders, my God, there’s a lot of poverty in this world, and you’re going to have people from all over the world. And I don’t think that’s something that we can do at this point. Can’t do it. So that is not my position,” Sanders said.

Coulter, who authored the book “In Trump We Trust” ahead of the 2016 election, was an early supporter of Donald Trump but has since become a vocal critic of the president for not keeping his campaign promise of building a wall at the southern border.

Florida great-grandmother, armed with a baseball bat on Sunday taught a 300-pound burglary suspect, who police said tried to break into her car a valuable lesson: Don’t mess with grandma.

Philippine diplomats say they have started evacuating a small group of Filipinos from the Libyan capital after it was hit by a barrage of rocket fire that wounded one Filipino.

Department of Foreign Affairs spokesman Emmanuel Fernandez said Thursday three hospital workers and four students were evacuated by Philippine Embassy personnel from Tripoli to Tunisia, where they are to take flights back home.

Manila’s top diplomat in Tripoli, Elmer Cato, says 13 more Filipinos have sought help and are expected to be flown back home soon.

Cato says that of about 1,000 Filipinos in Tripoli, only 20 have so far asked to be repatriated, including Rolando Torres, who was wounded in the forehead in the rocket fire late Tuesday in the Libyan capital.
