Skimm This: Trump’s Finances, CBD, and 'Milkshaking'

May 21, 2019

It’s May 21st. Today, we Skimm’d This:

  • Democrats are looking for the deets on President Trump’s finances … and have issued subpoenas to a couple of banks already. We’ll get into what the Dems are looking for and why you should care.

  • A new study said CBD might be able to treat opioid addiction. While this was a small study, it’s a big step. We’ll explain why.

  • Today is the 100th anniversary of the House of Representatives passing the 19th Amendment. Ballot’s up. Cheers.

  • And finally: Milkshakes are on the rise in the UK … but not in the way you would expect.

theSkimm: 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.
