Three House committees want to dive into President Trump’s business financials. Specifically, they want the deets from his accounting firm, Capital One, and Deutsche Bank. Trump and his three oldest children have sued to stop that from happening. We’ll explain the backstory and how judges are weighing in. Meanwhile, a new study says CBD could be the next big thing to treat opioid addictions - specifically heroin. Without creating a new addiction. We’ve got the details. Also on today’s episode: the 100th anniversary of the House of Representatives passing the bill that gave women the right to vote ... and the protesting trend that is taking the UK by milk storm.
