The leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee have sent a request to the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit for any information on President Trump and his top aides, CNN reported Tuesday.

“We’ve made a request, to FinCEN in the Treasury Department, to make sure, not just for example vis-a-vis the president, but just overall our effort to try to follow the intel no matter where it leads,” Sen. Mark Warner (Va.), the panel’s top Democrat, told CNN.

“You get materials that show if there have been, what level of financial ties between, I mean some of the stuff, some of the Trump-related officials, Trump campaign-related officials and other officials and where those dollars flow — not necessarily from Russia.”

The request is part of the panel’s broader investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and any potential ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Warner told CNN that he will block Trump’s nominee for the Treasury Department’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, until the Intelligence panel gets the information it requested.
