Kushner Is About To Get Screwed: Federal Prosecutors Subpoena Records From Deutsche Bank
Federal prosecutors in New York have subpoenaed White House adviser Jared Kushner’s Deutsche Bank records, according to The New York Times.
The newspaper reported Friday that prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York subpoenaed the records tied to President Trump’s son-in-law, from the German financial institution over the past few weeks.
It’s unclear what records the prosecutors are pursuing, but “Kushner Companies has taken out hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from Deutsche Bank, tied to Russian oligarchs, over the years,” The Times noted.
Kushner stepped down from his position leading the company to join the Trump administration, but still owns part of the business.
“We are unaware of any inquiry directed at Deutsche Bank from the E.D.N.Y. and have no reason to believe there is one,” a Kushner Companies spokeswoman told the newspaper.
The subpoena appears to be unrelated to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe or to another investigation by the attorney’s office into a visa program used by the Kushner Companies to bring real estate investors into the country, the Times reports.
Deutsche Bank has emerged as a key institution in Mueller’s probe of Russian election interference. Mueller’s team reportedly subpoenaed the bank for information on Trump’s accounts there last month.
