Democrats are coming at President Trump from every angle.
They are launching investigation after investigation in hopes of finding something they can use to impeach Donald Trump.
And this one Democrat may have found the smoking gun Robert Mueller has been looking for.
Democrats are convinced that the Russia investigation runs through Deutsche Bank.
They claim Deutsche Bank is involved in money laundering for the Russians, and that Russians laundered money through Trump’s real estate empire through the bank.
But now New York Attorney General Letitia James is subpoenaing Deutsche Bank to get her hands on their financial records.
Fox News reports:
The New York attorney general’s office on Monday handed subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank for records involving Trump’s failed bid to buy the Buffalo Bills and other business dealings with the Trump Organization, according to a report.
The inquiry, spearheaded by the recently-elected Letitia James, was prompted by the congressional testimony of Trump’s ex-attorney Michal Cohen, who alleged that Trump deliberately inflated his assets when applying for loans from Deutsche Bank, the New York Times reported, citing a person who was briefed on the subpoenas.
The request to Deutsche Bank sought records on loans, mortgages, lines of credit, and financial transactions related to several Trump properties as well as his attempt to buy the NFL’s Buffalo Bills in 2014, the report said. The subpoena also requested records from the New Jersey-based Investors Bank on Trump Park Avenue, which the bank reportedly backed.
This conspiracy theory about Trump and Deutsche Bank bubbled up again because of Michael Cohen’s testimony.
Cohen claimed that Trump engaged in fraud by inflating the worth of his assets on loan applications with Deutsche Bank to buy the NFL’s Buffalo Bills.
Now Democrats are using that thin reed to rekindle their baseless conspiracy theory about Trump working with the Russians and hiding the money in Deutsche Bank.
