What does it mean that Trump's personal banking information has been handed over to Robert Mueller?

He has previously said that any attempt to investigate his personal business dealings would go beyond Mueller’s investigative mandate and would represent a “violation”.

So now what?

It's not just his, it's his family's too!

They're looking to see where the money came from and where it went.

Does he understand that he doesn’t set the terms of an investigation against him? That’s the whole point of an independent counsel.

Otherwise he’d just glance down, ruffle his own tie s little, and then say, “nope, no wrongdoing here. Case closed.”

This is huge. I've been waiting for this since the beginning. Deutsche Bank has already paid the Justice Department 10 BILLION Dollars in penalties for laundering Russian money, so they're dirty as all Hell. You connect Trump to their schemes and he goes down.

Also, don't forget that Kushner did a quickie loan with them right before the election for almost $300 million, so who knows where that leads, and Wilbur Ross, our Sec of Commerce is up to his eyeballs in all this as well. If I had to bet, Ross will be the next person Mueller flips.

[quote] R35: So basically it's like what everyone's been saying all along.... ultimately it will come down to when they follow the money.

I think there is a reason for this. It’s simply because “money” is mathematical. It is neither created nor destroyed, so to speak, it just gets transferred from one to another. Also, we have long established rules as to what is legal and not legal to do with money. And, greed is a motive that everyone can understand. So, it is easier to identify when someone does something illegal with money.

It’s harder to assess whether someone actually peed on a bed on purpose and on demand and why and so forth, I’d imagine.

At one of Trump’s rallies, his subjects had waited in line and then, in their seats, a long time before he finally spoke. Then he starts doing that stream of consciousness thing he did on the campaign trail, and he adds “Isn’t this better than talking policy? Policy is boring, this is much better”, and the crowd roared its approval. So they were “entertained”, but not informed. Trump then added that he didn’t want to talk policy so they could all “get the heck out of there”, and the audience roared its approval. It was like the rallly was cutting into their recess period, and they were in middle school.

I thought it was really disrespectful to his audience but clearly they were too stupid to appreciate that. It’s nice that some Deplorables have bumper stickers on their cars so they can be more easily identified for what they are.

R69, I'm guessing Jared, who has an American/Israeli dual citizenship, is trying to go to Israel. Who knows if Ivanka will go with him or want to stay by the Dear Fuhrer's side until the end in the bunker. If Eva Braun could do it, so could Ivanka. Of course Melania is heading for the hills with her latest boytoy.

I have a feeling that Putin, if he understands anything at all, realizes Trump is not going to be able to do much, if anything, more for him and is ready to pull the plug. As soon as it becomes apparent that Trump's money is confiscated, he won't want to help him get a Russian hotel or even let him in the country probably. Too messy. So he'll just cut him loose to flounder on his own. Trump is probably counting on living the high life in Russia with a dacha and a never-ending stream of thirteen year old Russian hookers. The reality is probably a lot worse, someplace in some third world country that will take him for a few million.

The fact that all these people are waiting until the last minute is what interests me. What are they waiting for? Jared is next, he should be gone already. Wearing a wire and standing close to Daddy Dearest?

R79 is right - the Republican leadership will not do the right thing under any circumstances.

Pretty sure that Pence lying about what he knew - on tv - in front of the nation - will be his downfall. And who knows what other stuff will be dug up by mueller’s team during their nvestigstions - suspect pence is in it up to his eyebrows. He knew what was happening at the very least - even if he wasn’t an active part of it - but he chose to look the other way for his own personal gain.

also think it won’t just be money laundering that gets trump and company. There’ll be some dodgy tax evasion stuff as well. Lots of failure to comply with securities regulations. And dealing with foreign people and powers under US sanctions. Take your pick! The last one might especially useful for dealing with daddy’s little princess, as she’ll claim to have no knowledge or agency in the day to day financial machinations. And probably didn’t. But she sure as shit dealt with people she shouldn’t have! It’s clearly documented.

And once on their way - did they all fall for the honey trap that’d been set for the them? Or did some of them realise it was all a set-up - or were warned that it was?

I think someone quoted it up in the thread, some news person asked him if it would be a red line or something, and he said it would. Trump didn't say it unprompted at that time though. He may have later if he felt emboldened.

[quote] What will Fox News and their basket of deplorables say when Trump goes to jail?

They will say it is unfair because Hillary did worse and she isn't in jail, because their response to everything is BUT Hillary.

[quote] A source with knowledge of the investigation tells @FoxNews that there has been no subpoena from Robert Mueller's office sent to Deutsche Bank asking for information on @realDonaldTrump finances

But I thought Fox and the deplorables didn't approve of unnamed sources.

Fixed.

On MSNBC, they just said that Gen Flynn's agreement to provide information included an agreement to provide information to state prosecutors along with Federal prosecutors. That means Mueller is looking to that in case Trump pardons anyone, because Trump can't pardon for a state crime.

Thank you R134 -- I did think that went without saying, though.

Oops, many apologies r137 I meant that for r138.

R135, I've said this many times and I'll say it again: Schneiderman is the key. He's ready to pounce if and when Trump makes any move against Mueller. I guarantee Trump's team has been made aware that Schneiderman is standing down from taking action against cosa nostra Trump so long as Mueller goes about unimpeded.

Schneiderman has already gone up against Trump, so he knows what he's dealing with. He went after him for the Trump University scam and got a $25 million settlement. Trump tried filing complaints against Schneidrman and failed miserably. Schneiderman is now in the middle of pursuing a case of identity theft by deplorables who used real people's accounts to post fake anti net-neutrality comments to the FCC (and crashed their server), even though the FCC WON'T COOPERATE.

Mueller and Schneiderman are working in tandem. Schneiderman is the reason Mueller can proceed as aggressively as he has been so far.

Jay Sekulow is saying no subpoena was issued to Deutsche Bank, saying the bank told him this, but the bank itself hasn't released anything, which I think is pretty telling.

And I can't imagine every single respectable news source would have run with this story if it was just idle conjecture. Reuters and BBC especially wouldn't have fallen for an unsubstantiated source making this claim.

[quote]German business paper Handelsblatt first reported the subpoena, confirmed by Reuters through an anonymous source close to the matter. Both reports said Mueller issued the subpoena several weeks ago. Handelsblatt said the subpoena requested information on the bank's dealings with the Trumps, where Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter, and her husband, Jared Kushner, are also clients. Deutsche Bank spokesman Charlie Olivier told Newsweek the bank declined to comment on the matter.

No, actually it wasn't. Every major news source has confirmed it. Trump doesn't "win" anything.

[quote]Reuters and BBC especially wouldn't have fallen for an unsubstantiated source making this claim.

Nor would the Wall Street Journal. And it makes sense: there is no way that Mueller is going to ignore the financial data and, assuming that's the case, of course he's going to go to Deutsche Bank.

Would/will Mueller have jurisdiction for the “bank” in Syria that Putin & his Oligarchs use as a personal ATM & money laundering front?

One of the things I’d most like to know about is the bizarre “holiday” Jared & Ivanka took to Croatia in the sweltering off-season, in the middle of the campaign, & two weeks after having a baby..... to meet Wendy Fucking Deng!?!?!

I have always believed it is one of the shadiest pieces of this shady-shit-puzzle.

There are days when I can feel myself literally stewing in my own rage at what is happening to our country.

Robert Mueller is the ONLY thing standing between these soulless monsters & The United States as we know it.

[quote] Robert Mueller is the ONLY thing standing between these soulless monsters & The United States as we know it.

That's sad and alarming. We really need an opposition party not a collusion party that the Democratic Party essentially is.

And yes, I found that Croatia holiday puzzling too.

by Anonymousreply 14812/05/2017

Same here regarding the Croatia trip. It made no sense at all.

Wendi Deng was close to Putin at that time and there were rumors about them being a couple, which was odd, because it has been rumored for years that Putin is married to Alina Kabaeva. I never believed the Deng/Putin romance storyline.

by Anonymousreply 14912/05/2017

Does anyone believe Vladimir Putin would let a marriage to one woman get in the way of a romance with another?

by Anonymousreply 15012/05/2017

Bloomberg reporter just confirmed on Ari Melber's show that he stands by his reporting on the bank. Also FYI - Jay Sekulow, is Trumps make believe TV lawyer. He has no experience in this kind of law. (He prosecutes mostly the God cases, where Christians feel they are discriminated). Also if your bank gets a subpoena for your records, there is no way they are going to let you know the specfiics.

Isn't it Cyprus where all the shady banks are?

Mueller has the Cyprus banking information. Sent people over this fall for that.

I only hope that this means that his fall from grace will be even more dramatically spectacular...it’s the only way a man that ugly could give me a woody!

by Anonymousreply 156Last Thursday at 5:24 AM

R147 & R149 I totally agree. Two weeks after having a baby and in the middle of a presidential election, you and your husband who is a major component of the campaign don't go off on a holiday in Croatia with Putin's girlfriend just to unwind and have some girl time. Something was definitely up with that. Money changing hands, information relayed to Putin - something. Hopefully, the CIA had Wendy Deng under surveillance as she was fucking with Putin and Tony Blair and old man Murdock. What a whore.

Wendy Deng's Poontang

by Anonymousreply 158Last Thursday at 9:04 PM

I don't get it, what is so special about Wendi Deng?

by Anonymousreply 159Last Friday at 12:03 AM

Wendi Deng allegedly acts as a go-between, R159.

by Anonymousreply 160Last Friday at 12:07 AM

If Trump has to testify in Summer Zervos' defamation suit, he will lie that he didn't grope and grind on her. And perjury is an impeachable offense.

Other accusers will testify. He may be impeached for lying about sexual assault.

Oh the irony, after dragging Bill Clinton's accusers to a Presidential debate!

Can we start a GoFundMe for Miss Summer Z?

by Anonymousreply 161Last Friday at 4:53 AM

R159 Apparently, she has the sexual appetite of a horny male teenager. She is also supposedly highly skilled at blowjobs and has trained her pussy muscles to do amazing things. Her VeeJayJay has certainly got her out of China and into the beds of some major world powers.

Wasn’t that Trump grandchild two months old and not two weeks? Still the rest of it part of the Russian collusion.

I find the Wendi Deng appeal mysterious as well

by Anonymousreply 164Last Friday at 12:49 PM

I think Chinese women are very opportunistic and extremely submissive at the same time. They don't talk back but at every opportunity they grab the money.

Deng looked like Murdoch just ordered a cheap mail order bride via some shady online service when they married. I think Chinese people love the wealth of western countries and the luxuries but they have very little use for western values like democracy, liberalism, freedom of expression, gender equality, enlightenment or gay rights.
