Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) explained why Trump is freaking over the special counsel looking at his finances. The entire Trump Organization, meaning the Trump family could have been laundering money for Russia.
Rep. Schiff said, “First the President is clearly worried that Bob Mueller will be looking into allegations, for example, that the Russians may have laundered money through the Trump Organization. That is really something, in my opinion, he needs to look at because what concerns me the most, is anything that can be held over the President’s head that could influence U.S. policy, that would be among most powerful form of kompromat. I think it’s something plainly the President is very concerned about but clearly within the scope of Mueller’s investigation.”
The reason why Trump gets jittery anytime someone goes near his finances is that there are some dark and potential criminal secrets there. The kind of criminal secrets that wouldn’t just take down Donald Trump, but also his sons Don Jr., and Eric, his daughter Ivanka, and his son in law Jared Kushner. If Trump’s secrets are ever exposed, there is a possibility that it will destroy his business and wreck his wealth.
If the family has been laundering money for the Russians, the officials of the Trump Organization could face criminal charges. Those officials are Trump and his kids. As investigators are following the money, they are finding more trails and threads, which is why the investigation is taking so long, but also why there is a good chance that it will expose this president and his family’s financial dealings with Russia.
