In case you missed the latest issue of Manager Magazin, a German business and financial publication, check this out: Deutsche Bank, a major German financial institution, just might have proof that Jared Kushner—White House advisor, Trump’s son-in-law, and frequent target of the ongoing investigation into Russian influence on the 2016 presidential election—may have made some highly suspicious money transfers.
That information is so sketchy that Deutsche Bank turned it over to the German government’s Federal Financial Supervisory Authority for Germany. According to Manager, that information will then go to special counsel Robert Mueller, as per the subpoena the prophetic Mueller requested last year. (It’s like he knows Kushner isn’t clean, and knew it already!)
This represents a turning point in the Mueller case, and the case against Trump and his closeness to Russian meddling. Not only does it focus on where the money went—a much more concrete and damning thing than people “talking,” but it confirms something Steve Bannon was quoted as saying in Michael Wolff’s incendiary Fire and Fury, a look at the Trump White House: “This is all about money laundering.”
People on Twitter were not surprised, but they were amused in an “I told you so” kind of way.
