Democrats ask for records from Manafort lender who sought Secretary of Army job

The head of The Federal Savings Bank in Chicago was asked to provide records.

Cummings and Lynch questioned whether Calk issued the reported loan in exchange for Manafort's promise to help get Calk appointed as Secretary of the Army.

"The Federal Savings Bank is aware of recent press reports attributed to unnamed ‘sources’ implying that Paul Manafort obtained loans in exchange for a promise of a position in the Trump Administration. Those reports are simply not true," the bank said in a statement Friday. "The Federal Savings Bank has been fully cooperating with the Special Counsel throughout his investigation and will continue to do so."

The Pentagon confirmed that Calk did, in fact, reach out to the Army administrative personnel office “sometime in November of 2016 regarding the confirmation process in general," according to a letter the Pentagon sent Cummings in response to Democrats' inquiry about Calk's communications with defense officials.

“This new information provided by DOD appears to confirm at least part of the underlying allegation, which is that you were actively inquiring with the Pentagon within days of the presidential election about a high-level position that would have required the advice and consent of the Senate,” Cummings and Lynch wrote to Calk in the Thursday letter.

Cummings and Lynch requested all communications between Calk and any member of President Trump’s campaign, the Trump transition team and Pentagon. They also asked for records related to all loans discussed, applied for, reviewed, or granted to Manafort by The Federal Savings Bank.

The members are requesting the aforementioned documents from Calk by April 26.
