closevideo Adam Schiff agrees, Russia investigation
California democratic REP Adam Schiff, the incoming House Intelligence Committee Chairman, charged Sunday that President Trump’s financial records with Deutsche Bank and Russia reveal could be “a form of compromise,” which “must be made known.”
Days after he told The New Yorker that the Deutsche Bank was an “obvious place” to do when he starts boards, the requirements in the next month, the ship suggested that it had to be a reason that the German banks are giant, was willing to work with the Trump organization.
“The concern about the Deutsche Bank you have a history, the money-laundering of Russian money,” the ship said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
He continued: “they paid hundreds of millions of dollars in fines to the state of New York, because of money laundering Russian money. And this is, apparently, a bank that was willing to do business with the Trump organization. Now is this just a coincidence?”
Last month, the Frankfurt lender, was raided as part of a long money-laundering probe in connection with the Panama-papers, the information, the disclosure of millions of documents, such as the world’s richest politicians and business leaders their money to hide.

The episode had no obvious connection with the White house, or trump, but it made the headlines in the US, as the Deutsche Bank, the Trump organization lent considerable sums of money in the past.
“Who is the principle financier of the Trump organization for the last 20 years? Deutsche Bank,” Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano said earlier this month. “Well, I don’t know if there is a connection. Do you know the means by which the American state lawyers were able to contact their colleagues across the pond, and a warrant served. All of these things kept under wraps until we get it.”
He added: “The President himself, should think very. Not for his son or son-in-law, so much for yourself.”
In the year 2017, the regulatory authorities in the United States and the United Kingdom to Laundry fined Deutsche Bank $ 700 million for the operation with the widely used and “known” vulnerabilities in the anti-money-screening practices-weaknesses that according to reports, more than a year later, potentially allows the bank’s customers to withdraw the control over their identity and the source of their wealth.
At a conference in 2008, Donald Trump, Jr, allegedly remarked, “In terms of high-end product flow in the US, the make Russians have a quite disproportionate to a lot of our assets cross-section. … Say, in Dubai, and certainly with our project in SoHo, and everywhere in New York. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”
“What do we do, what the President said to his sons, and said, you don’t need to deal with US banks, because they have all the money they needed from Russia, or a disproportionate share of their asssets come from Russia?” Ship asked. “If the a form of compromise, it must be made known.”
Special Counsel Robert Mueller was reportedly also subpoeaned at the end of last year for records, with Trump and Deutsche Bank.
Trump has mocked-section ship as “Little Adam” and again denounced Russia’s probe as a “witch hunt.”
Although the former trump was convicted of campaign-Chairman Paul Manafort earlier this year in the Miller sample on multiple bank fraud charges, the bank applications and work abroad, none are dug out of the financial misconduct, Muller was with the agreement of the trump campaign with Russian officials.
