In other news, Trump is reportedly planning to sign an executive order of some description that will call for adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census. I expect this will be blocked in court, too.
Meanwhile, inflation in the cost of goods and services increased by the most since January 2018 during the month of June. The cost of clothing, cars, and furniture increased the most.
Finally, Deustche Bank has apparently done business with every piece of shit on the planet. The New York Times reports that the bank had a business relationship with Jeffrey Epstein until May of this year.
In recent years, Mr. Epstein was a client of Deutsche Bank’s private-banking division, which caters to ultrawealthy individuals and families. The bank provided Mr. Epstein with loans and wealth-management accounts, as well as trading services through its investment banking arm, according to two people familiar with the relationship. At one point, compliance officers at Deutsche Bank raised concerns about transactions by Mr. Epstein’s company, because he posed reputational risk to the bank, the people said.
Deutsche Bank managers overruled their concerns, the people said. They noted that there was nothing illegal about the transactions and that Mr. Epstein was a lucrative client.
Managers also overruled employees who raised concerns about Trump.
It's no wonder the bank is cutting 18,000 jobs.
