Bank Officials Detect ‘Money-Laundering’ Activity In Accounts Controlled By Trump And Kushner

Published

On Sunday, The New York Times reported that Deutsche Bank analysts who specialize in money-laundering recommended the bank notify federal investigators about possible criminal activity detected in accounts controlled by President Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

According to bank officials, suspicious transactions started back in 2016, prompting bank employees to sound the alarm.

“The transactions, some of which involved Mr. Trump’s now-defunct foundation, set off alerts in a computer system designed to detect illicit activity, according to five current and former bank employees. Compliance staff members who then reviewed the transactions prepared so-called suspicious activity reports that they believed should be sent to a unit of the Treasury Department that polices financial crimes,” the report states.

According to the report,  high-ranking officials at the bank who appear to be deeply in bed with Trump and Kushner to the tune of billions of dollars in loans ignored their employees’ advice and the federal government was never alerted, until now.

2nd GOP Senator Busted: Sen. Kelly Loeffler Dumped Millions In Stock After Receiving Coronavirus Briefing

Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) sold millions in stock after receiving a private coronavirus briefing, days before the market plunge, a new report by The Daily Beast revealed on Thursday.

The Georgia Republican is the second senator who has gotten rid of their holdings right as the stock market went bad.

The first was Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), who pocketed $1.6 million after dumping stocks after the briefing.

“The Senate’s newest member sold off seven figures worth of stock holdings in the days and weeks after a private, all-Senators meeting on the novel coronavirus that subsequently hammered U.S. equities,” The Beast reported Thursday.

“Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) reported the first sale of stock jointly owned by her and her husband on January 24, the very day that her committee, the Senate Health Committee, hosted a private, all-Senators briefing from administration officials, including the CDC Director and Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institutes of Health of the United States, on the coronavirus.”

Loeffler tweeted about it at the time.
