Trump’s former right-hand radical Steve Bannon stunned the nation this morning when he predicted Donald Trump Jr. was in serious trouble for his “treasonous” meeting with a Russian lawyer – but the young Trump wasn’t the only spoiled and tremendously stupid scion thrown under the bus this morning.
In an interview with journalist Michael Wolff, who is preparing the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at the Trump administration in his book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Bannon revealed that “greasy” Jared Kushner is the key to unraveling the Trump administration – and that money laundering is going to see him follow his greasy father into prison.
“This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to f*cking Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr, and Jared Kushner… It’s as plain as a hair on your face.
“It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner sh*t. The Kushner sh*t is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me.”
Deutsche Bank has lent hundreds of millions of dollars to both the Kushner and Trump businesses, which is why their records were subpoenaed by the Mueller investigation last month. Mueller’s team has already indicted former campaign chairman Paul Manafort for years of money laundering crimes; it would appear that more are on the horizon.
While Steve Bannon insists he will not be a witness for the prosecution, his remarks indicate that he knows something that he’s not telling – and Special Counsel Mueller would likely like to know what it is, and a federal subpoena doesn’t care if you’d like to share your secrets or not.
“They’re sitting on a beach trying to stop a Category Five [hurricane]” says Bannon of the Trump team.
It will be gratifying indeed to see these self-entitled jackals turn on each other and sell each other out before they are all swept away by Hurricane Mueller.
