“It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit,” Bannon is quoted as saying in the Fire and Fury book. “The Kushner shit is greasy. They’re going to go right through that.” Bannon also told Wolff that a June 2016 meeting between Manafort, Trump Jr., and Kushner with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower was “treasonous.”

That means they were most likely backed by a personal guarantee of Donald Trump. Deutsche Bank owns Trump/Kushner — and now Mueller has the bank running scared. It is all coming out...
