Over there course of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the alleged Trump-Kremlin conspiracy things have taken some fairly odd turns.
The entire idea that Donald Trump is some sort of Russian operative is bizarre and foolish enough, but that hasn’t stopped the liberal “resistance” to the President from concocting theory after theory as to why the businessman-turned-Commander in Chief is somehow ready for impeachment.
For what it’s worth, Robert Mueller has seemed willing to indulge the left in these wild goose chases as well, traveling down some of the narrower, (and flimsier), paths offered to him. Now, with the Michael Flynn plea deal demonstrating the true desperation of the entire Special Counsel investigation, Mueller is being forced to look even further into the void to find something to keep his paychecks coming.
“Mueller issued a subpoena to Germany’s largest lender several weeks ago, forcing the bank to submit documents on its relationship with Trump and his family, according to a person briefed on the matter, who asked not to be identified because the action has not been announced.
“’Deutsche Bank always cooperates with investigating authorities in all countries,’ the lender said in a statement to Bloomberg Tuesday, declining to provide additional information.
“Deutsche Bank for months has rebuffed calls by Democratic lawmakers to provide more transparency over the roughly $300 million Trump owed to the bank for his real estate dealings prior to becoming president. Representative Maxine Waters of California and other Democrats have asked whether the bank’s loans to Trump, made years before he ran for president, were in any way connected to Russia. The bank previously rejectedthose demands, saying sharing client data would be illegal unless it received a formal request to do so. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.”
Personal financial records were a sore spot for the democrats during the election of 2016 after Donald Trump decided against releasing his vast tax history to the public.
This prompted criticism from democratic lawmakers over what they perceived was some sort of hidden information, and leftist pundit Rachel Maddow even conducted an egregious publicity stunt around her possession of Trump’s “tax returns” – an event that turned out to be nothing more than a few pages of previously understood information being revealed after a lengthy monologue that ensure that the viewing public would get to the first commercial break before seeing exactly what sort of ruse of occurring.
