Maxine Waters spread a disgusting Fake News story while on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes. “Well, Deutsche Bank emerges as extremely important because they’re known to be a money-laundering bank. They have been fined over $600 million between the U.K. and the United States for money laundering,” said Waters.
“They do not have the kind of operation in the bank that would keep up with what is going on and we can follow what is going on. But they have been known to basically get around the kind of controls that they should have,” said Waters.
“In addition to that, they’re the only bank really that will lend money to Donald Trump. Donald Trump has sued them. They have sued him back. But yet they continue to lend him large sums of money. Donald Trump owes them $300 million. $170 million of that for the Trump Hotel that they have to finance in Washington, D.C,” said Waters.
However, there is a huge problem with Maxine’s statement. Sarah Sanders explained the issue when a reporter asked her a similar question. “Look, I think it’s important to note and hopefully you guys have seen this statement that Jay Sekulow, a member of the president’s legal team, has put out within the last hour,” said Sanders.
“That they confirmed that the news reports that the special counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the president are completely false, no subpoena has been issued or received, we’ve confirmed this with the bank and other sources,” said Sanders.
