Abbe Lowell joins Jared Kushner's legal team

Deutsche Bank is one of the few banks that is still willing to lend to the president, whose businesses have filed for bankruptcy six times.

The loan came as the German bank was in the midst of negotiating settlements with the U.S. Justice Department over a mortgage fraud case, and with NY state regulators on charges related to an apparent Russian money-laundering scheme.

Trump appears to be trying to redefine what it means to collude or obstruct as he pushes back against an investigation into interactions that members of Trump's team may have had with Russian officials during the campaign and transition. Separately, Kushner and his mother have a personal line of credit worth up to $25 million from Deutsche Bank, the Post notes.

Jared Kusher reportedly has a new attorney on his personal legal team - Abbe Lowell, considered one of the premiere white collar criminal defense lawyers in the country.

Deutsche Bank in January reached a $7.2 billion settlement with the Department of Justice over misleading investors on its sale of mortgage-backed securities. But when the DOJ tapped ex-FBI director and WilmerHale partner Robert Mueller to take. But my larger point is that this story illustrates just how Herculean of a task Mueller has been given.

Kushner purchased the four retail floors of the building for a reported $296 million in October 2015 from the family of an Uzbek-born Israeli billionaire named Lev Leviev, who is a vocal admirer of Russian President Vladimir Putin and once aspired to work with Trump on real estate deals in Moscow.

That's no guarantee in a world where Trump's wrongdoing is obvious, but it becomes even more hard to imagine in a world of tenuous ties and transactions that can be hard to weave into an easy-to-understand narrative, if one exists at all.
