We don’t know what is or is not in the Robert Mueller report when it comes to Donald Trump’s suspicious financial relationship with Deutsche Bank. But as the president and his newly handpicked Attorney General William Barr continue to try to cover up what’s really in the Mueller report, a major development is unfolding.
House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters has revealed that Deutsche Bank has begun cooperating with her demands for Donald Trump’s banking records.
On Tuesday, Waters told reporters that the bank has in fact begun giving her Trump’s records. It’s not difficult to figure out why Deutsche Bank has begun cooperating: Waters has subpoena power, thanks to the new Democratic House majority, and she can force their hand anyway.
This is a major development, based just on what’s already widely publicly known. Deutsche Bank spent several years loaning large amounts of money to Donald Trump, even though he’d become such a bad credit risk that virtually no other bank was willing to touch him.
Deutsche Bank was busted by the Feds for having laundered billions of dollars of money between its Moscow and New York City branches.
If Deutsche Bank wasn’t using these loans as cover for laundering Russian money to Donald Trump in New York City, then this is all one phenomenal coincidence. Now that Maxine Waters has her hands on Trump’s Deutsche Bank records, she’s going to be able to give us definitive answers one way the other in upcoming congressional hearings.
