Breitbart: Special Counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed bank records for President Donald Trump and the Trump family from Deutsche Bank, expanding and extending the Russia investigation beyond its mandate and predicted timeline.
Reuters reported Tuesday:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has asked Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) to share data on accounts held by U.S. President Donald Trump and his family, a person close to the matter said on Tuesday.
Germany’s largest bank received a subpoena from Mueller several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, the person added, confirming a report by German daily Handelsblatt published on Tuesday.
Deutsche Bank rejected demands in June by U.S. House Democrats to provide details of Trump’s finances, citing privacy laws.
The subpoena is likely aimed at determining whether money for various Trump family business ventures — including those of Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner — came from Russian sources.
The Special Counsel will likely be looking for any payments that appear to come from the Russian government, or any evidence of money-laundering that might have happened through real estate transactions possibly unrelated to the 2016 presidential campaign.
The bank subpoena is the latest sign that the Special Counsel is casting a wide net, potentially going far beyond the original investigation into Russian interference in the election and and searching for any past wrongdoing by the president, his family, his aides, and his associates. read more
SNIP: Now it’s just harassment. Trump had been publicly tormenting the Bush and 0bama administrations long before 2016, so I’m supposed to believe Trump’s businesses and bank records were never ever looked at before 2016 by either administration, plus the IRS? If there was anything, it would have been found already. Meanwhile, more anti-Trump emails of FBI agents are being discovered and soon to be made public. What are the chances Mueller wrote a few himself?
