Trump’s Foreign Bank Gives Up His Records

The German Deutsche Bank has refused to give up Trump's records in the past when they were requested by congressional Democrats, but the bank has now complied with a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller.

From The Guardian:

Deutsche Bank, the German bank that serves as Trump’s biggest lender, was forced to submit documents about its client relationship with the president and some of his family members, who are also Deutsche clients, after Mueller issued the bank with a subpoena for information, according to multiple media reports. The news was first reported by Handelsblatt, the German newspaper.

The revelation makes it clear that Mueller and his team are investigating the president’s finances. Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser, Jared Kushner, is also a client.

As you probably know, Trump has done business with Deutsche Bank for years because American banks refused to do business with him following several bankruptcies that screwed virtually everyone involved in them from the banks themselves to local cities and counties. Trump has been a walking financial disaster for decades.

Deutsche Bank was fined $10 billion for its involvement in a Russian money laundering scheme earlier this year and we know the Trump family receives a lot of capital from Russians thanks to Eric Trump's big mouth.

This is pure speculation on my part, but it's possible Mueller is actually more interested in Jared Kushner's finances than Trump's. We know Kushner has been at the center of numerous shady business deals and he also ran Trump's digital campaign operation.

    Trump will blame Mueller for the Govmint
    Shutdown ordered by Hillary via email from
    her office in Benghazi, and the fuck-heads
    will eat it up after it’s reported on FOX

    At this point, if I were Mueller, I would just pull a paddy wagon up to the North Portico of the White House and empty everyone out into the paddy wagon and “lock them up”. God damned traitors.

    One look at the empty soulless face of Kushner convinced me that he is a sociopath like his father before him. What a great family, he , his wife and his father in law. To think this country has fallen into the hands of these people makes one weep for its future.

    Can’t wait to hear about what’s in these records. The money has always been far more interesting to me than the salacious allegations against Trump.

    I still wanting to know more about that pinging server. We never have had a full telling of what was going on.

    That sound you heard was another shoe dropping.

    Robert Mueller just crossed Donald Trump’s loudly-proclaimed “red line.” Should we expect a flurry of rage-tweets from Trump or will he try to fire Mueller?

        Why is Wonkette no longer offering the “Truck Fump — Truck him right in his ear” t-shirts? I would so buy one right now… Though hm, I also need “It’s Mueller Time” 🙂

      He’ll definitely do the former. And I’d more than expect him to do the latter. Probably about Christmas, when everyone’s attention will be focused on peace on earth, goodwill to men – the stuff the right considers absolute bullshit.

    Ooh, ooh, this is SO exciting! It’ll probably take weeks to unpack, so I’ll try to be patient, but… FINALLY, some insight into all the cash boogering! High-end real estate is apparently the domain of crooks and gangsters generally, and Trump is no exception. Pass the popcorn! I’m SO ready for this!!!
