Bannon says Mueller will use Jared Kushner’s ‘greasy’ money laundering deals to ‘f*ck Trump’: report

Published

on

In addition to slamming Donald Trump Jr. for having a “treasonous” meeting with Russian officials in 2016, former Trump political strategist Steve Bannon also reportedly believes that special counsel Robert Mueller will use alleged criminal activities by Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner to get to the president.

In an excerpt of journalist Michael Wolff’s new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” published by the Guardian, Bannon says that Mueller’s probe will get to Trump by going after money laundering operations that purportedly run rampant at Trump properties around the world.

“This is all about money laundering,” Bannon reportedly said, according to The Guardian. “Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f*cking Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner… It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”

Bannon went on to say that Kushner’s activities would prove to be particularly problematic for the Trump White House.

“It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner sh*t,” he said. “The Kushner sh*t is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me.”

The revised indictment won't add new defendants or charges but will instead allege that their propaganda campaign interfered more than previously understood with the Federal Election Commission's lawful functions.

Trump official paid president’s campaign $744,000 for experts to pump up her ‘personal brand’: report

Published

on

In April, President Donald Trump's Medicare and Medicaid Administrator Seema Verma faced public backlash after a report detailed a $2.25 million contract she awarded to Republican consultants to bolster her own public image.

But the scandal may have been even worse than that. According to Politico, among the 40 outside contractors hired as part of this contract included "eight former White House, presidential transition and campaign officials for President Donald Trump" — who charged up to $380 per hour for "strategic communications" work and relied on the federal government's convoluted contractor system to conceal what they were doing.
