Deutsche Bank looking at 'suspicious' Kushner transactions


This story was reported overnight in the German press, but was picked up this morning by the NY Daily News:

Deutsche Bank is looking at evidence that companies related to Jared Kushner may have moved "suspicious" money through the German lender, according to a report.

The bank has informed a national finance supervisor about the transactions and will also inform Special Counsel Robert Muellerís investigation into alleged Russian election meddling, Manager Magazin, part of the Der Spiegel group, reported Friday.

Reports about Muellerís interactions with the German bank first appeared in December, when German newspaper Handelsblatt said that he had subpoenaed information from the institution that has offices in New York but is based in Frankfurt.

Don't worry about the shithole stuff. He doesn't really mean it. They never do:



Actually, he meant it.

That was written in 1922. It took him a while to employ his anti-semitism "effectively" for political purposes. But he got it done.

JUST IN: Trump hosting $100k-per-couple inauguration anniversary gala at Mar-a-Lago



President Trump is expected to celebrate the first anniversary of his inauguration this weekend with a party at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, according to Bloomberg News.

Tickets for the event, which will be held Saturday night, begin at $100,000 a pair, which pays for dinner and a photo with Trump. Attendees can pay $250,000 to participate in a roundtable with Trump.

Bloomberg reports that the event is being jointly hosted by Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel and billionaire casino mogul Steve Wynn, and proceeds from the event will benefit Trumpís presidential campaign and the RNC.

Trump personally made decision to limit Bannon testimony: report

President Trump reportedly ordered that former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon limit his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.

Trump's decision came after receiving advice from Uttam Dhillon, a deputy White House counsel, Foreign Policy reports.
Dhillon reportedly thought the administration could have legitimate executive privilege claims in the situation, sources told Foreign Policy. But Dhillon also found the administration doesn't have legitimate executive privilege claims to limit the testimony of Bannon and other officials from giving information to special counsel Robert Mueller.


Foreign Policy's findings come after it was reported earlier this week that an attorney for Bannon relayed questions to the White House in real time while his client was testifying before the House Intelligence Committee.

The Associated Press reported that Bannon's attorney, Bill Burck, was communicating with the White House counsel's office via phone to check on whether it would allow Bannon to answer certain questions.
