Treasury officials leaking Trump financial information to the press

CNNA senior Treasury Department official pleaded not guilty in Manhattan federal court Wednesday to charges that she disclosed sensitive financial transaction reports pertaining to multiple entities tied to President Donald Trump and Russia.
The official, Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards, allegedly leaked the documents, known as Suspicious Activity Reports, to a reporter whom CNN has previously identified as working for BuzzFeed News.

For the record, a bank files a "suspicious activity report" on any transaction greater than $10,000 (or multiple lesser transactions that appear to be structured to avoid the reporting threshold). So, basically, this is reporting that Trump has a lot of money and sometimes moves it around.
