Re: “Trump talks about issues that most concern us” (Letter to the editor, Eastbaytimes.com, June 12): I have been puzzled as to why some people approve of Donald Trump. I thank the letter-writer for providing a piece of the puzzle. I do agree with her that he talks a lot. However, since he doesn’t accomplish much, I can’t see how he qualifies as a true leader.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, the likely incoming chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told NBC's Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press" Sunday that he wants to obtain President Donald Trump's records with Deutsche Bank because they could expose "a form of compromise" with Russia.Schiff told The New Yorker in a profile published last week that he plans to subpoena information on Trump's transactions with the bank because of the German financial institution's longtime relationship with Trump and its past ties to Russian money laundering. Schiff, who Trump has referred to as "little Adam Schitt," said the answer to whether the president was involved with Russian money laundering could exist in the Deutsche Bank records."Well, the concern about Deutsche Bank is that they have a history of laundering Russian money," Schiff told Todd on Sunday.
