Back in early December 2017, news organizations reported that special counsel Robert Mueller was seeking records from the German bank Deutsche Bank related to the president. And then later in December, New York Times reported that prosecuters in New York had subpoenaed the same bank for Kushner’s records, but it was not clear if it was directly related to special counsel Mueller’s investigation into whether the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia. The coincidental timing of the subpoena, however, points to the obvious.
Just last week, another publication, Manager Magazin in Germany, reported that the same bank that is being investigated flagged an account tied to Kushner for “suspicious transactions.” The bank immediately fired back, and cast new light on the alleged reports.
Special Counsel Mueller Is About To Hit Another Dead End
According to The Hill:
German bank Deutsche Bank is pushing back on a report that it flagged an account tied to President Trump’s son-in-law and aide Jared Kushner for “suspicious transactions.”
The bank said in a statement that the report was wrong and that it would take legal action against the reporting, according to Reuters.
If Kushner’s bank account really is being investigated by New York prosecutors as a result of the Russian collusion probe, it appears special counsel Mueller is about to hit another dead end.
Deutsche Bank’s spokesperson is quoted as saying:
“It is wrong to assert that Deutsche Bank supplied the German financial supervisory authority BaFin with a report stating that the real estate investor Jared Kushner or companies or persons associated with him may have channeled suspect funds via Deutsche Bank when executing their transactions. We are taking legal action regarding this reporting.”
Kushner’s spokesperson Chris Taylor has already stated that Kushner’s company has “done nothing wrong” and issued the following statement per The Hill:
“There is no money laundering. There is no Russian connection. There are no improper loans. There are no misrepresentations. Everything has been handled in a normal, professional and commercial manner. … Any story claiming that we have done anything wrong in our dealings with Deutsche Bank is made-up and completely baseless. Importantly, not one news agency even called us before running these crazy allegations.”
With this latest revelation, it appears there aren’t a whole lot of paths left for Mueller to prove there was collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia. The dossier has already been proven to be fake and all of the ties surrounding the publishing of it are far more suspicious than anything seen thus far out of the Trump Campaign investigation.
