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.

Hammer-Wielding Trump Supporter Arrested After Threatening Latino Couple: ‘Get Out Of My Country!’

President Donald Trump has sparked a radical movement led by racism and hatred in America. That being said, this past weekend, a hammer-wielding Trump supporter was arrested after she threatened a Latino couple and told them to go back to their country.

According to KPRC-TV, 60-year-old Constance Lynn Bono was arrested on Sunday after she brought out a hammer and threatened Arturo Corovez and his wife, Dr. Lia Franco.

Bono reportedly told the couple to “go back to Mexico.” The couple is actually from Ecuador.

Dr. Franco has actually been stationed in New Orleans to help take care of COVID-19 patients while she finishes her medical residency.

The couple decided to take a trip to Texas over the weekend to take a break. That’s when they were confronted by the vicious Trump supporter.

They noticed a woman following behind them while driving to a restaurant, and noticed she was displaying a hammer as she drove.

“She stopped behind us,” Cordovez said. “After that she started showing a hammer through the mirror. She was shaking her arm … and cursing at us, I think. I was thinking, what did I do?”

They called 911 and pulled into a gas station, where the woman pulled alongside them and began screaming.

“She said screamed, ‘You Mexicans, get out of my f*cking country, go back to your f*cking country,’” Franco said.

Then the woman got out of her car holding the hammer and made threatening motions before police arrived and took her into custody.

According to the report, Bono was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony with a punishment range of up to 20 years in prison.

If prosecutors believe she was motivated by racism, the charge could be enhanced to a first-degree felony, carrying a possible life sentence.

“I think she needs help, she needs treatment, but that doesn’t justify the fact she needs to follow the laws of her country,” Franco said. “If she broke the laws here, she needs to pay for what she did. But for me as a physician, I think the most important thing is she needs treatment, she needs help.”
