Waters has also subpoenaed Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Canada and Toronto-Dominion Bank, and JP Morgan Chase, with Royal Bank of Canada in the process of complying, according to NBC. The committee set a May 6 subpoena deadline for the documents.

While the subpoenas are not public, they reportedly assert the government has the power under the Bank Secrecy Act to access financial information to investigate potential money laundering, according to NBC.

“The potential use of the U.S. financial system for illicit purposes is a very serious concern,” Waters said in April when she issued the subpoenas. “The Financial Services Committee is exploring these matters, including as they may involve the President and his associates, as thoroughly as possible pursuant to its oversight authority, and will follow the facts wherever they may lead us.”
