Treasury Department Gives Access to Investigators of Data Tying Trump to Russian Money Laundering

The Treasury Department has officially now given House Investigators access to FinCen data that is rumored to show connections between Donald Trump and Russian money laundering.

Both the Senate and House committes have also requested information about President Donald Trump and his top aides from a financial intelligence unit in the Treasury Department that imposed a $10 million civil penalty on Trump Taj Mahal in 2015 for multiple violations of anti-money laundering laws.

“While I cannot confirm any briefings or requests made by the House Intelligence Committee, I will say that examining financial records and transactions is absolutely crucial to our investigatory effort,” Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Russia investigation, told CNN on Thursday.

Fired US Attorney Preet Bharara has been persuing Russian Money Laundering allegations, including the theory that Russian Mobsters (many of them associated with former FSB Leaders) had used New York Real Estate, and the Trump Tower to hide money.
