Deutsche Bank on Monday denied a New York Times report that said the company's anti-money laundering specialists had flagged several transactions involving accounts controlled by President Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as suspicious in 2016 and 2017, only to have executives ignore their reports. "At no time was an investigator prevented from escalating activity identified as potentially suspicious," the bank said in a statement. The report said multiple transactions, some involving Trump's now-shuttered foundation, set off alerts in a computer system that detects potentially illegal activity. Employees reportedly forwarded information to the Treasury Department unit covering financial crimes. They were reportedly overruled by executives at the private banking division. House Democrats have subpoenaed Trump's records from Deutsche Bank, and Trump has sued to stop them.
