The Massachusetts lawmaker, widely seen as a potential 2020 presidential contender, signed onto a letter with Senator Chris Van Hollen asking Committee Chairman Mike Crapo to open a probe of the bank’s compliance history, “with a focus on its correspondent banking operations and vulnerabilities to money laundering.”

A Senate investigation, which Warren and Van Hollen want to see followed by a report and hearing, could put further pressure on the Frankfurt-based bank, which is also likely to face scrutiny from the House Financial Services Committee next year. Representative Maxine Waters, the California Democrat set to become chairman of the House panel, is planning to probe matters including the company’s ties to President Donald Trump, according to a memo obtained by Bloomberg News.

3. Isn't this the same bank that Justice Kennedy's son worked for? Is there quid pro quo?

It would be great to find out if Kavanaugh got his seat through trickery. Well, maybe not so great for the country.
