“A report out of the New York Times which alleges President Donald Trump and his top adviser Jared Kushner were laundering money to Russian individuals has been shot down by a Kushner Companies spokeswoman who says the failing publication “continues to create dots that just don’t connect.”
(INTELLIHUB) — A far left fake news report out of the New York Times which purports Deutsche Bank accounts connected to Donald Trump and Jared Kushner owned companies were flagged for “suspicious transactions” and potential “money laundering” activities has been shot down by a Kushner Companies spokeswoman who called the so-called news “completely made up.”
Kushner Companies spokeswoman Karen Zabarski said in a statement: “Any allegations regarding Deutsche Bank’s relationship with Kushner Companies which involved money laundering is completely made up and false. The New York Times continues to create dots that just don’t connect.”
Author of the New York Times piece titled Deutsche Bank Staff Saw Suspicious Activity in Trump and Kushner Accounts David Enrich appeared on MSNBC via phone on Sunday where he was given a platform to spread what appears to be nothing but lies regarding the sitting president and his senior advisor.
“… starting in 2016 and going on into 2017 a number of transactions at various Trump accounts and Kushner accounts at Deutsche Bank… were flagged by the bank’s computers anti-money laundering systems,” Enrich explained. “And when employees went to take a closer look and reviewed the records and investigated the transactions they concluded based on what they had seen that these were suspicious transactions that should be reported to the federal government division that pursues financial crimes.”
Additionally, Enrich reported that money was leaving Kushner’s account and “was going to Russian individuals.”
The blowhard went on to say that bank employees who reported the suspicious activity were ultimately “overruled” eventually “fired” from the bank months later.
Deutsche Bank responded with the following statement: “We have increased our anti-financial crime staff and enhanced our controls in recent years… At no time was an investigator prevented from escalating activity identified as potentially suspicious. The suggestion that anyone was reassigned or fired in an effort to quash concerns relating to any client is categorically false.”
Needless to say, President Trump joined in the action, Tweeting the following in a five-part Tweet on Monday:
The Failing New York Times (it will pass away when I leave office in 6 years), and others of the Fake News Media, keep writing phony stories about how I didn’t use many banks because they didn’t want to do business with me. WRONG! It is because I didn’t need money. Very old … fashioned, but true. When you don’t need or want money, you don’t need or want banks. Banks have always been available to me, they want to make money. Fake Media only says this to disparage, and always uses unnamed sources (because their sources don’t even exist)… The Mainstream Media has never been as corrupt and deranged as it is today. FAKE NEWS is actually the biggest story of all and is the true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE! That’s why they refuse to cover the REAL Russia Hoax. But the American people are wise to what is going on… Now the new big story is that Trump made a lot of money and buys everything for cash, he doesn’t need banks. But where did he get all of that cash? Could it be Russia? No, I built a great business and don’t need banks, but if I did they would be there…and DeutscheBank… was very good and highly professional to deal with – and if for any reason I didn’t like them, I would have gone elsewhere….there was always plenty of money around and banks to choose from. They would be very happy to take my money. Fake News!
