Several months ago, there was a flurry of articles in magazines that detailed very questionable financial practises (mostly about money laundering) by the Trump organization. Russian oligarchs were at the heart of most of the tales, and mostly about them having huge gobs of money that they "stole" and had to legitimize some way. Trump was more than obliging and worked his deals. In the middle of all of this, Deutsche bank was an institution that money passed through to give appearances of legitimacy. Every link in the chain of dirty money made out: the oligarchs got theirs by having dirt become clean, the bank got its billions in cuts from the money that passed through (in and out), and Trump got his cut. This article is but one of many that narrated this scenario. What is happening now, is that the Special Prosecutor has submitted a subpoena to Deutsche Bank for the financial records as they pertain to Trump and the movement of money. Don't forget that Trump got his ass into a pickle because he stiffed contractors, lawyers, banks, and other creditors along his nefarious path of his business ways, to the point that the only bank that would lend him money is Deutsche Bank of Germany. It is this connection with the Russians and Deutsche Bank that Trump because the Chump, and he is on the hook to all of them. The alleged collusion between the Russians and the 2016 election is what Robert Mueller is investigating, and the intersection of all these nasty players is what could bring Trump down....or will bring him down.
