Jared Kushner’s Companies Have Been Subpoenaed By The IRS
Published on Feb 19, 2018
According to a new report in Bloomberg, the companies owned by Jared Kushner and his family have been subpoenaed by the IRS for information regarding their lenders and investments. While details about the investigation are relatively scarce, one thing that is known is that this has nothing to do with the special prosecutor’s investigation into the Trump administration, so Kushner now has a whole new world of problems to deal with.

Manafort Feeling Heat Over $40M of ‘Suspicious’ Transactions

President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort has come under renewed scrutiny after federal law-enforcement officials reportedly identified $40 million in “suspicious transactions” to and from his companies, according to BuzzFeed News. The sum is more than double the amount cited in the charges when Manafort was indicted for money laundering last October. Between 2004 and 2014, eight different banks are said to have filed 23 “suspicious activity reports,” which detail claims that Manafort received huge sums from banks in tax havens such as Cyprus, Kyrgyzstan, and St. Vincent—and there are suspicious-activity reports dating all the way up to 2016. Manafort’s longtime business partner Rick Gates reportedly intends to testify against Manafort after reaching a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller. Manafort pleaded not guilty to all charges in last October’s indictment.

Mueller Is Looking Into Kushner’s Foreign Funding

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has reportedly has been looking into Jared Kushner’s efforts to secure foreign funding during the presidential transition, according to CNN. That is an indication, CNN reports, that Mueller is investigating Kushner’s ties beyond Russia to secure funding for his 666 Fifth Avenue real-estate venture—including countries like China and Qatar. According to a CNN source, the investigation has not yet contacted Kushner Companies or interviewed anyone at the company. Kushner divested from the 666 Fifth Avenue project in early 2017. Kushner had bought the property in 2007 for $1.8 billion and had been struggling to shoulder the debt of the building in subsequent years.

Don Jr: The Presidency Is Hurting My Family’s Profits [Hey dude, it's easy! Tell your dad to resign and go back to his businesses!] super grin
Trump’s eldest said the idea the family profits from the presidency is “nonsense.”

Donald Trump Jr. has dismissed claims that his family is profiteering from his father’s presidency as “nonsense,” saying that it’s actually harming his ability to make the best deals. (*) On a trip to India to charm potential buyers of luxury Trump properties, the eldest of the president’s children said that when critics talk about “profiteering from the presidency and all this nonsense” they’re actually forgetting “the opportunity cost of the deals that we were not able to do.” According to the Associated Press, he added: “It’s sort of a shame. Because we put on all these impositions on ourselves and essentially got no credit for actually doing that... for doing the right thing.” Trump Jr. has drawn criticism on his trip to India for buying prominent ad space in Indian newspapers offering a “conversation and dinner” with him, with the tagline: “Trump has arrived. Have you?”

Quote:
@siobhanheanue
“Trump has arrived. Have you?” Presidential sprog splashed across the Saturday papers in India 🇮🇳, which is home to more Trump businesses than anywhere else outside the US. Flogging apartments. But don’t worry, the presidency is not being monetized.

He's really taking us for idiots. Being the prez's relatives have helped their businesses immensely, domestically and world wide. Who does he think he's fooling? Rolling Eyes

(*) Poor babies... As if any businessman or woman wasn't eager to do business with the Prez of the US, and visiting dignitaries weren't staying at Trump hotels at cut-throat prices...

This is the first indication that Mueller is exploring Kushner's discussions with potential non-Russian foreign investors, including in China.

Latest Mueller indictment spells trouble for bankers, too
Jake Pearson and Jeff Horwitz, Associated Press•February 24, 2018

NEW YORK (AP) -- Recently filed federal charges against President Donald Trump's ex-campaign chairman Paul Manafort could also pose legal and regulatory risks for the banks that loaned him millions of dollars against his New York real estate in recent years.

The most serious exposure may be for a Rhode Island-based bank that employed a "conspirator" in Manafort's scheme to obtain a loan he couldn't afford, according to the 32-count new indictment unsealed this week.

Dubbed "Lender B" in court papers, Citizens Bank not only lent Manafort $3.4 million based off of fraudulent documents but, in another case, appeared to help Manafort avoid being caught by sending back a crudely falsified financial statement that had been sent to them from a Manafort associate, according to federal prosecutors.

"Looks Dr'd," the unnamed banker allegedly wrote. "Can't someone just do a clean excel doc and pdf to me??"

Peter Lugcht, a bank spokesman, declined to acknowledge that Citizens was "Lender B" or answer questions about whether Citizens had reported the alleged loan application fabrications to the government. He also wouldn't say whether it still employed the person identified as a conspirator.

The Associated Press identified "Lender B" and other unidentified banks referenced in court papers by cross-referencing loan amounts and dates described in the indictment with publicly available property records in New York City.

Experts told the AP the bank's behavior as described in the indictment will cause problems for it beyond a possible loss on its loan, drawing scrutiny from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

"I would expect the OCC upon reading this indictment or news accounts of the indictment to immediately launch an investigation of what went on," said Kevin Handly, a banking lawyer and former senior attorney for the Federal Reserve Board.

Details of Manafort's banking habits were laid bare in the court papers filed this week by Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor investigating Russian ties to Trump. Manafort has pleaded not guilty to money laundering and other charges.

His longtime deputy, Rick Gates, who was similarly charged with banking violations, tax evasion, unregistered lobbying and other crimes, pleaded guilty Friday and will be cooperating with Mueller's probe.

Along with the prospect that one of Citizens' employees allegedly aided an attempt to commit loan fraud, the details in the indictment indicate the bank failed to heed the results of its basic due diligence, eventually lending Manafort $3.4 million despite twice having reason to be wary of Manafort's creditworthiness, prosecutors said.

In the first case, Citizens noticed that Manafort failed to disclose loans on other properties in New York in his application for a $3.4 million loan, using a condo in Manhattan's trendy SoHo neighborhood as collateral.

That's when Manafort asked Gates to find an insurance broker to hand over an old insurance report that didn't list one of the loans, making it appear as if he didn't have as much debt as he did, according to the indictment.

"Good job on the insurance issues," Manafort wrote to Gates, the court papers show.

In a second instance, Citizens was apparently unwilling to loan Manafort money after noticing $1.5 million on his balance sheet from another account. But the bank's concern was apparently mollified after Manafort and Gates asked their tax accountant to send the bank a back-dated document falsely stating the $1.5 million had been forgiven, court papers show.

In the case involving the "conspirator" at Citizens, it doesn't appear the bank made the $5.5 million loan that Manafort had sought for a property in Brooklyn. In that case, according to court papers, "another conspirator on Manafort's behalf" sent the bank a fake profit-and-loss statement. The person wasn't identified in court papers.

Handly said that bank regulators would likely want to know why a bank hadn't caught on to such a ruse.

"That they could make a loan thinking they had the collateral in place is a failing of the bank's internal operating procedures and controls," he said. "Ordinary due diligence should have uncovered that."

Manafort has properties in Florida, Virginia, Manhattan, Brooklyn and New York's Long Island.

He was represented on multiple real estate transactions named in the indictment by New Jersey lawyer Bruce Baldinger, property records show.

Baldinger was reprimanded by the New Jersey Supreme Court in 2008 for violating attorney conflict-of-interest rules and again in 2013 by the New York for not reporting his past disciplinary history, according to records. He didn't return messages seeking comment.
