It is not difficult to understand how such speculations began. Deutsche Bank has been active in Russia for a long time. She works with Kremlin-bound companies and washes money for wealthy Russians.
Mr. Trump has a history in Russia. He staged there once the Miss Universe Pageant and sold a mansion for $ 95 million to a Russian billionaire. During the 2016 campaign, Mr. Trump's company wanted to build a tower in Moscow with the help of a Russian bank, VTB, which has long been associated with Deutsche Bank.
And of course, Russia got involved in the presidential elections, which are to be carried out in favor of Trump.
Many current and former executives of Deutsche Bank, including those with direct knowledge of the loans, indicated that the loans granted since 2011 were financially attractive to the bank because Mr. Trump had agreed to personally acquire a majority of them In other words, if Deutsche Bank were to default, it would be able to confiscate its personal assets, including tens of millions of dollars, which it held in bank accounts.
Nonetheless, Deutsche Bank's internal files will most likely contain additional information about at least some dealings with Russia – though not necessarily with Mr. Trump himself.
The investigators of the Congress have summoned all documents regarding suspicious activity that the bank has committed Mr. Trump's accounts, his company, or his family members, including Jared Kushner, Mr. Trumps, have found son-in-law and counselor. In 2016, Tammy McFadden, a former bank anti-money laundering compliance officer, suspected transactions involving Mr. Kushner as potentially suspicious.
In these transactions money flowed to Russian individuals, and the files of Deutsche Bank are almost certainly more information.
