Nope. Nothing to see here, I’m sure.
Ok. Maybe something, but we don’t know exactly what. Given all that’s going on with the Russia probe and special counsel Robert Mueller’s deep dive into potential money laundering, this could definitely catch his attention.
A Deutsche Bank account linked to Trump son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner has been flagged for what they’re calling “suspicious transactions.”
Officials at the German bank told Manager Magazin, as reported by English-language outlets, that a review of company accounts related to the Kushner family was sent to a German bank regulator for further investigation. Information may also be released to special counsel Robert Mueller‘s federal probe.
So here’s what we do know.
In December, officials with the U.S. attorney’s office in the Eastern District of New York had subpoenaed the bank for records related to Kushner.
That wasn’t necessarily related to Mueller’s probe.
What we don’t know is what is meant by “suspicious transaction.” It may not be connected to Kushner directly.
Kushner’s attorney, Abbe Lowell isn’t responding to inquiries, at this time.
So will Mueller pick this up? He has reportedly been looking at Trump’s transactions with the bank. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone if the next thing we hear is that Mueller is on the case.
