Even Democrats are starting to turn on Robert Mueller.
Apparently unhappy with the special counsel’s lack of evidence, California Rep. Adam Schiff, the current chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is now putting together his own investigation into President Donald Trump.
Not Happy with Results
Schiff is a conspiracy theorist — and nothing more.
For the next two years, the one thing you can count on is Schiff wasting millions of taxpayer dollars chasing these wild accusations against President Trump. In this case, he wants to know why Trump has not been linked to money laundering.
According to Schiff, since Trump secured loans from Deutsche Bank AG, he must be guilty of money laundering.
Furthermore, since Mueller has not tied Trump to any money laundering, Schiff believes the attorney general’s office has been putting the clamps on Mueller and not allowing him to investigate this specific issue.
Deutsche Bank Problems
In 2017, Deutsche Bank AG found itself paying some extremely heavy fines for banking practices involving some of its Russian accounts. Schiff believes Trump was involved in that mess — and is now starting an investigation to prove it.
“If the special counsel hasn’t subpoenaed Deutsche Bank, he can’t be doing much of a money-laundering investigation,” Schiff said.
But if regulators already investigated the bank and found them guilty in 2017, why did they not turn up any evidence of money laundering pointing to Trump at that time?
The only thing Schiff has to go on here is that Deutsche Bank was willing to loan money to Trump after his casinos faced financial difficulties in the 1990s, leading to several bankruptcies. Because of that, Schiff apparently believes the Russians got their claws into him and involved Trump in a money laundering scheme.
If that were true, Schiff believes, the Russians meddled in the election to get “their guy” into office to further their own agenda against the United States.
In essence, Schiff is accusing the president of treason.
This is just a wild goose chase and obvious obstructionist behavior by one of the leading Democrats in office.
Sadly, the American people are going to be the ones that pay the price to prove his conspiracy theories wrong.
