Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: Senate Democrats Want Federal Reserve to Probe Trump, Kushner’s Deutsche Bank Relationship

.

Senate Democrats requested Thursday for the Federal Reserve to open an investigation into the relationship between Deutsche Bank, President Donald Trump and his son-in-law, senior adviser Jared Kushner.

The lawmakers want the federal banking agency to probe whether Deutsche Bank may have violated anti-money laundering laws, according to a letter sent by the Democrats to Federal Reserve Board Chairman Jerome Powell and New York Federal Reserve President John Williams, over a report that the German-based financial institution ignored suspicious activity alerts associated with the accounts of Trump and Kushner.

“Only by conducting a thorough review of the full range of this activity can we better understand what happened in these cases,” they wrote. “What practices, procedures, or personnel may need to be changed at the bank; and what regulators should do to ensure the Federal Reserve’s ability effectively to monitor compliance with Anti- Money Laundering laws.”

The Democratic lawmakers who penned the letter were all members of the Senate Banking Committee. They included ranking member Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, Jack Reed of Rhode Island, Bob Menendez of New Jersey, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada and Tina Smith of Minnesota.

Deutsche Bank executives ignored suspicious activity reports compiled by anti-money-laundering specialists who were wary of certain transactions associated with the accounts of Kushner and Trump, according to a New York Times report last month.

Trump is a longtime borrower from Deutsche Bank, an institution of which has found itself embroiled in numerous financial wrongdoings in recent years. They include a $10 billion Russian money-laundering scheme that in 2017 resulted in a more than $600 million fine from the U.S. government, which was preceded by a $7.2 billion settlement in 2016 for the role Deutsche Bank played in selling mortgages that contributed to the housing market crash of the late-2000s.

Tammy McFadden, a former Deutsche Bank employee and longtime anti-money laundering specialist, told The Times that one of the suspicious activities with Kushner’s accounts included a transaction to Russian individuals. Bank managers in New York reportedly felt the concerns were not warranted to require the suspicious activity be submitted to the government.

“In light of these most recent press accounts, and Deutsche Bank’s extensive history of violations, which have prompted huge penalties for the bank,” the senators wrote to the Federal Reserve leaders, “we urge you to undertake a thorough evaluation of the Bank’s compliance with Bank Secrecy Act and Anti- Money Laundering regulations with respect to the Trump and Kushner-related activities identified by Deutsche Bank compliance staff as suspicious.”

The senators also requested whether the Federal Reserve has met with the whistleblowers, how many other suspicious activity reports were “quashed” by bank officials, whether the bank was required to undergo an internal audit, if any of the suspicious activities were from Russian transactions and, based on Deutsche Bank’s history of wrongdoing, what “plans do regulators have for reforming Deutsche Bank’s management?”

A spokesperson for Kushner said in a statement that, “Any allegations regarding Deutsche Bank’s relationship with Kushner Companies which involved money laundering is completely made up and totally false.”

The White House did not respond to Newsweek’s request for comment.

Trump addressed the allegations that were laid out in The Times report last month by tweeting that the outlet and “others of the Fake News Media, keep writing phony stories about how I didn’t use many banks because they didn’t want to do business with me.”

“WRONG!” the president continued. “It is because I didn’t need money. Very old fashioned, but true. When you don’t need or want money, you don’t need or want banks. Banks have always been available to me, they want to make money.”

In a legal victory last month, a federal judge ruled that Deutsche Bank and Capital One, another financial institution with deep ties to the president, could comply with a congressional subpoena from House Democrats to turn over years’ worth of Trump’s personal and business finances. Trump had filed a lawsuit seeking to block such an effort. He has appealed the judge’s ruling.

This story was updated to include comment from a Kushner spokesperson.

Mystery company no longer facing Mueller subpoena

Michael_Novakhov shared this story .

The mystery company that fought a subpoena in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation appears to be facing less pressure even as prosecutors continue investigating, according to unsealed court records.

A federal judge stopped fining the company in February when it turned over almost 1,000 pages of documents to the special counsel. In April, the judge ruled the company, which refused to comply with Mueller’s subpoena last year, was no longer in contempt.

Judge Beryl Howell previously fined the company $50,000 a day beginning Jan. 15 for its failure to comply with the subpoena.

It’s not clear if the company actually paid any fines.

The company, owned by a foreign government, said it had “gone to great lengths to find and voluntarily produce documents responsive to the subpoena.”

Mueller and the prosecutors who took over the case pressed for more documents, asking the judge to increase the daily fines up to $300,000 in recent months.

“The government is not currently confident that [REDACTED NAME] has fully complied,” prosecutors said in the court filings.

But the company was adamant that it handed over everything it had. The unnamed company “even retraced its steps … to make sure that nothing fell through the cracks,” it said. “What more could the Special Counsel want?”

The name of the company and the country that owns it has been kept secret and the documents unsealed Friday have extensive redactions.

However, the documents revealed the information needed from the company was part of an ongoing investigation that began before Mueller’s investigation.

House Judiciary Committee invites John Dean for first hearing on Mueller report

Michael_Novakhov shared this story .

One of the key congressional panels leading the charge with ongoing probes into the Trump administration is set to hold a series of hearings on the findings laid out in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report. The nearly two-year long probe into the president’s ties to Moscow came to an official close last week after Mueller announced his resignation from the Department of Justice and subsequent closure of the special counsel’s office.

The House Judiciary Committee will hold the hearings beginning next week, Chairman Jerry Nadler announced Monday. The first hearing will feature testimony by John Dean, the former White House counsel whose bombshell testimony during Watergate paved the way for President Nixon’s resignation.

“These hearings will allow us to examine the findings laid out in Mueller’s report so that we can work to protect the rule of law and protect future elections through consideration of legislative and other remedies,” Nadler said. “Given the threat posed by the President’s alleged misconduct, our first hearing will focus on President Trump’s most overt acts of obstruction. In the coming weeks, other hearings will focus on other important aspects of the Mueller report.”

The hearings come after Mueller, in his first public statement about his Russia probe, explained that his team of investigators did not explicitly exonerate Mr. Trump, and instead offered reasoning why his office never considered indicting him for obstruction of justice.

“As set forth in the report, after the investigation, if we had confidence that the president did not clearly commit a crime, we would have said so,” he said at the Justice Department last week.

Despite Congress’ multiple appeals to the special counsel to testify in-person on the nearly 400-page long Russia report, Mueller indicated he would prefer not to testify before Congress, as many Democrats had hoped.

“Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report. It contains our findings and analysis, and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself,” Mueller said. “The report is my testimony. I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress.”

The panel has already held two public hearings into the president’s alleged crimes, as well as Democrats’ ongoing concerns over possible abuse of executive authority. Over the course of the panel’s Russia probe, numerous administration officials have successfully dodged congressional subpoenas to appear before the body, claiming executive privilege.

The first hearing in the series, entitled “Lessons from the Mueller Report: Presidential Obstruction and Other Crimes,” will take place on June 10 and feature testimony from Dean, former U.S. attorneys and legal experts.

Rebecca Kaplan contributed to this report.
