Once a respected banking institution, Deutsche Bank is under investigation regarding the possible laundering of billions of dollars for Russian oligarchs. It has already paid millions of dollars in fines, and that amount will likely grow.
Donald Trump has received loans from Deutsche Bank. Democrats are requesting information from the bank’s Executive Director, John Cryan, about those loans, and if they are tied to Russia in any manner.
“Congress remains in the dark on whether loans Deutsche Bank made to President Trump were guaranteed by the Russian government, or were in any way connected to Russia,” the Democrats wrote. “It is critical that you provide this committee with the information necessary to assess the scope, findings and conclusions of your internal reviews.”
Trump refuses to reveal his tax returns. Is this the reason Trump refuses to follow the tradition begun under Richard Nixon’s presidency and followed by every president since that time with the exception of Trump? Common sense tells us that he is hiding something. Trump business and his illegitimate presidency cannot exist if the truth is exposed.
There is no doubt that Trump has Russian connections. The only question remaining is how deep do they go? Some have even suggested that Trump is or was on Vladimir Putin’s payroll.
We know that he has been in contact with Russian oligarchs for a minimum of four years. We also know that Trump communicates frequently with Putin. His daughter’s clothing line is manufactured in Russia. It has been proven that most of his close supporters have relationships with Russians. His son-in-law, Jared Kushner met with the leader of a Russian bank which is under investigation, and to which sanctions have been imposed.
If only a small percentage of the information from the news agencies is proven, it will be more than enough to force Trump to resign or face impeachment.
There is hope for America on the horizon.
