President Trump’s initial response to the appointment of special prosecutor Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion with Russia. . “I am f . . . up, this is the end of my presidency” is the reaction of a man consumed with guilt. It is a pity Mueller didn’t continue his investigation to uncover the missing pieces of the puzzle. But the chickens may be coming home to roost with Trump’s efforts to block revelation of his shady dealings with Deutsche Bank.  

By inflating the value of his assets he was able to commit massive bank fraud obtaining credit from US banks for decades. But following their refusal to advance additional credit, Trump sought help from Deutsche Bank who advanced him $2B allegedly from Russian oligarchs’ laundered money in a high stakes quid pro quo for political favors orchestrated by the wily Vladimir Putin. In 2016 Trump jnr. admitted “we see a lot of money pouring in from Russia from Trump Organization properties.” Jared Kushner seems to be following in the footsteps of his father-in-law’s seeking Saudi money to stop the hemorrhaging of his businesses teetering on bankruptcy using a top security clearance to facilitate his dubious activities. 

Let us hope Congress discharge their oversight duties under Article 1 of the US Constitution, issue subpoenas, follow the money to get to the bottom of the monstrous malfeasance, self-dealing and criminal abrogation’s of duty of this President and his family.
