Mueller Expands Probe to Trump Business Transactions

July 21, 2017

-1x-1The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trumpcampaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe.

FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development in New York with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008, the person said.

The investigation also has absorbed a money-laundering probe begun by federal prosecutors in New York into Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

John Dowd, one of Trump’s lawyers, said on Thursday that he was unaware of the inquiry into Trump’s businesses by the two-months-old investigation and considered it beyond the scope of what Special Counsel Robert Mueller should be examining.

    Expanding his investigation to Trump’s businesses before running for president has nothing to do with this hacking investigation or the focus of this investigation. There are few CEO’s I have met or Millionaires, I have met a few in my lifetime and travels who did not travel extensively and have contacts from all over the world. I myself have known people from all over the world, China, Russia, Japan, England, Sweden, Ireland, everywhere.

    Trump needs to turn the tables and investigate Mueller, his contacts through the years and all the lawyers, Democrats he has brought in, then they will have to stand down due to, my guess compromising positions they have held.

    Seems they have run into a dead end and they are building a road.

    Isn’t Mueller suppose to be investigating the firing of Comey? Mueller is now looking into Trumps business transactions for what? There is a conflict of interest here, Mueller is best friends with Comey therefore should not be involved with this case. Mueller has hired hand full of lawyers to his investigating team who all have worked for the democrats and one of them was the Clintons personnel Attorney. Now is this bias or what and not to mention the millions of dollars of the tax payers money the democrats are spending and will most likely turn into billions for a witch hunt.

    Mueller should be fired by Trump. I thought his task was to look into the Demo’s craze about the Russians. Mueller’s efforts are a sham to find something on Trump which should not be allowed to happened.

  • Louisiana Lady says:

    One of the strong reasons that Jeff Sessions needs to be publicly called upon to do his job. Mueller and the witch hunt have gotten totally out of hand.

  • Humble Servant says:

    I don’t condone illegal means of getting to the White House but I am a little concerned the DNC has spent soooo much of our tax payer dollars trying to find a connection with Trump and the Russians. When Obama was elected and his bogus birth certificate came out NO ONE would lift a figure to prove it was not bogus. I think the DNC will do whatever it can to besmirch Trump but to what end? We ALL know the DNC is a bunch of Chicago gangsters running a mafia like organization so what are you trying to do? You have just about stepped in enough dung that your own liberal sane people won’t get close to you. This leaves you the group of crazies. You have already started to elect these crazies into the party, why? Because no one else wants to associate with you any more.

      I hate to break this to you but it’s the republicans spending the money not the DNC. This is a republican show and it is important to follow the money. Trump & Company have good reason to try to stop congress and the special prosecutor from looking to deep into the money because they know it will nail them. It’s no secret that Trump has been playing the game with Russian money for years. No bank in the US will lend him a dime. The money trail is going to be a problem. As far as the money the republicans are spending, they spent $8 million to discover a BJ.

        The real money problem has to do with the Clinton Foundation not the money the trail on President Trump.

        1. bobnstuff says:

          I see you bought in on that one. So far the Clinton Foundation has passed it’s audits with no problem and non of the money ended up in the Clinton’s bank account unlike Trumps Foundation that he used to settle lawsuits against him and illegally donate to friends campaigns. Trump has a history of playing fast and loose with other peoples money, check the court records.

    Can You Say WITCH HUNT??????This is to the point of Ridiculous.Shut this thing down.It’s just a waste of time and money.There are many more important things that need to be done to MAGA.Lets get on with it.

  • JC says:

    Mueller is wasting the taxpayer’s money with this witch hunt—he needs to be shut down and if Sessions won’t do it we need a new attorney general

    1. Rodzzz says:

      Mueller and his good friend Comey should be thrown in jail. Yes, we need an attorney general who’s not scared to do his job. I was happy to see Jeff Sessions selected but I’m now having second thoughts. He turned out to be a big disappointment.
