The entire Trump administration is quickly becoming the subject of multiple criminal investigations.
In addition to investigating whether or not Donald Trump committed obstruction of justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey, a New York Times report published Wednesday revealed that special counsel Robert Mueller is also investigating “money laundering” by Trump associates.
The Times bombshell report was confirmed by a Washington Post article that said in addition to possible obstruction, investigators are also “looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates.”
“A former senior official said Mr. Mueller’s investigation was looking at money laundering by Trump associates,” a source told the Times.
“The suspicion is that any cooperation with Russian officials would most likely have been done in exchange for some kind of financial payoff, and that there would have been an effort to hide the payoffs, most likely by routing them through offshore banking centers.”
The White House declined to comment on the Times report, referring all questions about the criminal investigation to Trump’s personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz.
