Deutsche Bank Staff Saw Suspicious Activity in Trump and Kushner Accounts

It's a total disgrace!

Quote:
Anti-money laundering specialists at Deutsche Bank recommended in 2016 and 2017 that multiple transactions involving legal entities controlled by Donald J. Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, be reported to a federal financial-crimes watchdog.

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.

But executives at Deutsche Bank, which has lent billions of dollars to the Trump and Kushner companies, rejected their employees’ advice. The reports were never filed with the government.

When he became president, he owed Deutsche Bank well over $300 million. That made the German institution Mr. Trump’s biggest creditor — and put the bank in a bind.

Senior executives worried that if they took a tough stance with Mr. Trump’s accounts — for example, by demanding payment of a delinquent loan — they could provoke the president’s wrath. On the other hand, if they didn’t do anything, the bank could be perceived as cutting a lucrative break for Mr. Trump, whose administration wields regulatory and law enforcement power over the bank.

This is why we look for financial disclosures from political leaders.

No, the IRS isn't going to look for influence-peddling, quid pro quo, or the like.  They are looking for tax cheating.

THIS is a case where a bank is altering policy to appeal to a politician, and where that politicians may have altered policy to secure favors from that bank.  DID he?  Don't know.  That's why we investigate.

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but that is not how the law works...you don't start with a theory and launch an investigation....the gov't can't haphazardly investigate you just to "find out" - there has to be a complaint filed, an indictment, a charge, due process...

I recall something about innocent until proven guilty...

these collusion charges against trump, that now seem to have been based on fraudulent, uncorroborated documents funded by a rival political party, should be what gives you pause.

So no investigations can happen until charges are filed?  Probable cause is off the table?  Does that apply to everyone, or just Trump?  That's a nifty catch-22.  You can't file charges without evidence, and you can't gather evidence without filing charges...

that's law 101...

civil is a much lower threshold...but criminal you need to have reasonable, credible, corroborated evidence a crime was committed to be indicted then charged...see 4th amendment.

We are talking about gathering evidence, not issuing indictments

I see the failing NYTimes is still providing fap material for the unwashed leftist loons on here.

  

Because it's just a clever, pithy saying based on comedy show talking points shortcutting logic and reason and making the issue worse. ~ Queshank
