'Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win'

As irony would have it I'm at the part in the book where they are talking about Trump & Deutsche Bank. Ironic because yesterdays lead story was Mueller subpoenaing Deutsche Bank for Trumps & Kuschner's banks records.

In July Trump told the NYT, 'Trump said that Mueller would be crossing a red line if he investigated the Trump family finances broadly, and in such a case Trump reserved the option to fire Mueller.'

As an aside the mechanics of international money laundering is byzantine. Its easy to see how actors can hide and launder money with the aid of accoutants, tax experts, and banks. Trump isn't even a major player in NY real estate scene and yet he has something like 500 smaller companies where money has passed through.

Your average DA simply doesn't have the resources to look into businesses structured like that.
