Deutsche Bank investigating long time banker friend of Trump/Kushner.

The Bum in Chiefs favorite bank, Deutsche bank has begun an investigation into Trump/Kushner for the  banker friends purchase of a condo partly owned by Kushner.

 

The connection emerged in personal financial disclosures filed recently by Kushner and wife Ivanka Trump, who hold jobs as White House senior advisers.

Banker Rosemary Vrablic and two colleagues purchased an apartment on Park Avenue in Manhattan for about $1.5 million in 2013 from Bergel 715 Associates, The New York Times first reported Sunday. It was sold two years later for $1.85 million.

 

The first daughter and Kushner received $1 million to $5 million from Bergel 715 in 2019, according to the couple’s required financial disclosures, which they filed Friday. It was the first time Bergel had appeared in their filings.

 

 

A source familiar with the business arrangement told The Times that Kushner owns a stake in Bergel, and did so when Vrablic purchased the condo. But the income reported from Bergel was not linked to the banker’s purchase, according to the source.

 

 

The Deutsche Bank investigation will determine if Vrablic acted improperly by purchasing the condo, according to The Hill. It’s typically against policy at banks for employees to do business — other than banking — with clients to avoid conflicts of interest, the Times noted.

 

“The bank will closely examine the information that came to light on Friday and the [facts] from 2013,” bank spokesman Daniel Hunter said in a statement after learning of the Kushner connection to the condo.

Kushner and Donald Trump were clients of Vrablic when the banker bought the condo. Kushner introduced his father-in-law to her in 2011 when Trump was having a hard time finding a bank that would loan him money after his repeated bankruptcies and loan defaults, including one to Deutsche Bank, the Times noted.

 

 

Deutsche Bank is Trump's biggest creditor, and has loaned Trump some $2 billion since 1998, with about $350 million dollars in loans still outstanding. Deutsche is also well known for its money laundering properties very possibly with Trump as well as Russia.

Do you think this has anything to do with Trump hiding his tax returns from the American public?

All I care at this point is when Jan comes, everything comes out in the wash and he is finally held accountable for all the wrongdoings he has finally been caught doing and CAN BE Prosecuted.
He will find Mr. Trump is an ordinary citizen just like everyone else, except he has to worry a lot more about all his bad dealings now.
We may not ever see his taxes, but I sure hope New York State does. Hopefully, they are able to finally see exactly if and what business he has done with all his friends in Foreign Countries.

of course! The DA in SDNY was able to get access to his records from Deustche Bank which came out yesterday. IF those records are ever to come out, I think the likely hood that Trump is a felon is rather high. Possibly a really good reason tow ant to try to stay President, as he could be the first indicted President in our history.

from a story on yahoo on this topic:

The U.S. Department of Justice last year launched another probe into bank compliance with regulations to prevent money laundering. The investigation included a review of suspicious activity, including some linked to Kushner, sources told the Times. Amid the probe the president’s Trump Organization was reportedly pressing to postpone its bank loan payments.

The sticky situation underscored the unique power of Trump as president to maneuver a deal for his business, particularly with a bank under investigation by his own administration.

David Enrich, a Times business reporter who recently wrote a book on Deutsche Bank, “Dark Towers,” told NPR that the bank has been “worried” about a situation like this.

Hmmmm, the bank has been worried about a situation like this. Well I can see why! A sleazy bank who has sleezy clients! OOOPS!!!!!

I read Dark Towers and this bank purposefully created "a situation like this".  They've just been caught and persons will be indicted like falling dominoes as the investigations unravel their sleazy/dark financial manipulations.

Enrich details how the rump family, beginning with JarJar & Princess and ultimately rumple himself, "GROOMED"  Rosemary Vrablic.  It's quite disgusting and so is this bankers ability to be wowed by all the glitz, glamour, power and connections provided for her....if only she found ways to appease rump greed.  She did, over and over again for many years.

'Dark Towers' explains a lot.  Let's hope the long financial tentacles of Deutsche Bank doesn't keep all of the truth from coming out and 'all of the king's men' from falling, along with tRump and some of his family members.

Interesting. Is the bank trying to do the right thing, and clean up it’s act. Or if it’s under investigation, is it looking for folks to throw under the bus. 
As of yet they have not had to release any of trump’s financial information, have they?

Honored Social Butterfly

to my knowledge not yet William, probably tied up in the courts which is what Trump wants for SOME reason.

Tom, I think it’s to push it past the election...and that brings up another premise...when trump loses the election, 

how many charges, and indictments will he be subject to...another tsunami!
