Deutsche Bank analysts recommended Feds investigate possible Trump and Kushner money-laundering in 2016: report

Published

on

According to a Sunday morning report in the New York Times, analysts employed by Deutsche Bank who specialize in money-laundering recommended the bank notify federal investigators about possible criminal activity in accounts controlled by President Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Those warnings started back in 2016.

The reports states, “The transactions, some of which involved Mr. Trump’s now-defunct foundation, set off alerts in a computer system designed to detect illicit activity, according to five current and former bank employees. Compliance staff members who then reviewed the transactions prepared so-called suspicious activity reports that they believed should be sent to a unit of the Treasury Department that polices financial crimes.”

According to the Times, higher-ups at the bank that was deeply in bed with the two to the tune of billions of dollars in loans rejected their employees’ advice and the federal government was never alerted.

Trump raises prospect of suing everyone involved in Mueller probe in latest crazed ‘WITCH HUNT’ tweet

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Tuesday lashed out once against at former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation -- and raised the prospect of suing everyone involved in it.

Even though the Mueller probe concluded nearly a year ago, the president is apparently still angry that anyone would bother investigating his campaign's multiple contacts with Russian agents who helped him get elected by illegally hacking the emails of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and the Democratic National Committee.

In one tweet, the president made a false claim about Mueller supposedly wanting to be appointed as FBI director under the Trump administration, when in reality, former chief political strategist Steve Bannon testified under oath that Mueller was only willing to give the president advice about selecting the next director.
