Title: Trump Administration Waives Punishment For Convicted Banks, Including Deutsche — Which Trump Owes Millions

The Trump administration has waived part of the punishment for five megabanks whose affiliates were convicted and fined for manipulating global interest rates. One of the Trump administration waivers was granted to Deutsche Bank — which is owed at least $130 million by President Donald Trump and his business empire, and has also been fined for its role in a Russian money laundering scheme.

The waivers were issued in a little-noticed announcement published in the Federal Register during the Christmas holiday week. They come less than two years after then-candidate Trump promised “I'm not going to let Wall Street get away with murder.”

Under laws designed to protect retirement savings, financial firms whose affiliates have been convicted of violating securities statutes are effectively barred from the lucrative business of managing those savings. However, that punishment can be avoided if the firms manage to secure a special exemption from the U.S. Department of Labor, allowing them to keep their status as “qualified professional asset managers.”

In late 2016, the Obama administration extended temporary one-year waivers to five banks — Citigroup, JPMorgan, Barclays, UBS and Deutsche Bank. Late last month, the Trump administration issued new, longer waivers for those same banks, granting Citigroup, JPMorgan, and Barclays five-year exemptions. UBS and Deutsche Bank received three-year exemptions.

In the year leading up to the new waiver for Deustche Bank, Trump’s financial relationship with the firm has prompted allegations of a conflict of interest. The bank has not only sought the Labor Department waiver from the administration, it has also faced Justice Department scrutiny and five separate government-appointed independent monitors. Meanwhile, the New York Times recently reported that federal prosecutors subpoenaed Deutsche for “bank records about entities associated with the family company of Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser.”

All of these interactions with the Trump administration and the federal government are transpiring as Deutsche serves as a key creditor for the president’s businesses.

Trump owes the German bank at least $130 million in loans, according to the president’s most recent financial disclosure form. Sources have told the Financial Times the total amount of money Trump owes Deutsche is likely around $300 million. The president’s relationship with the bank dates back to the late 1990s, when it was the one major Wall Street bank willing to extend him credit after a series of bankruptcies. In 2016, the Wall Street Journal reported Trump and his companies have received at least $2.5 billion in loans from Deutsche Bank and co-lenders since 1998.

The relationship has had problems. After the financial crash, Trump defaulted on a $640 million loan from the bank. Deutsche brought Trump to court, and the famously litigious real estate mogul countersued for $3 billion in damages, claiming the financial crisis was a “force majeure” event that Deutsche Bank helped create. But the rift was short-lived: the parties settled, the loan was repaid, and Deutsche was soon lending to Trump again.

In December, Bloomberg and others reported the bank had turned over financial records to special prosecutor Robert Mueller after his office subpoenaed the records as part of his investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. Trump’s lawyers have called that reporting inaccurate.

“We have confirmed that the news reports that the Special Counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the President are false,” Trump attorney Jay Sekulow said in a statement. “No subpoena has been issued or received. We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources.”

Less than three weeks later, the New York Times reported federal prosecutors had subpoenaed Deutsche Bank records related to White House senior adviser and Trump son-in-law Kushner and his vast business holdings. There is no evidence those subpoenas were related to Mueller’s investigation.

The subpoenas come less than a year after Deutsche Bank was fined $425 million by New York State for laundering $10 billion out of Russia.

All five of the banks granted waivers from the Obama and Trump administration were fined for their involvement in the LIBOR  scandal that led to $9 billion worth of fines from regulators around the world. Deutsche Bank has paid $3.5 billion for its role in the scandal, more than any other bank. The scandal involved illegally manipulating the London Interbank Offered Rate or LIBOR, which is used to set the cost of borrowing for a variety of financial transactions.

In 2015, Deutsche Bank pled guilty in the U.S. to wire fraud for its role in the scandal. Less than two years later, in the final hours of the Obama administration, Deutsche Bank agreed to a $7.2 billion settlement with the Justice Department for misleading investors in mortgage-backed securities between 2006 and 2007.

Bullshit on the “little-noticed” announcement. This notification published in the Federal Register is the normal source for notification and there was nothing special about it so as to make it necessary to have 50-foot inflatable King Kong atop the Empire State Building with loud speakers, radio microphones or TV cameras sounding out a clarion call. There are literally hundreds, and maybe even thousands, of reporters who scour the Federal Register constantly throughout the day and nothing ever goes unnoticed....this so OBVIOUSLY did not. There was no intent to try and make it go unnoticed. It was posted during Christmas time....because that was when it happened.
Does this count as another broken campaign promise, or is it just Trump just "refining his stance"?
This counts for NOTHING....the action is insignificant. Well, this does count as yet another trashy yellow journalism article you have once again become a party to with the sole purpose of attempting to defame and discredit Trump.
Trump Administration Waives Punishment For Convicted Banks, Including Deutsche — Which Trump Owes Millions
The title is a nefarious lie making it sound flagrantly wicked and impious as though the convicted banks are getting away with No punishments when in fact the banks have collectively paid billions....BILLIONS....of dollars as punishment prescribe by law.

There is NO waiver of punishment. The waivers are for a specific thing necessary to benefit millions of ordinary folks and their retirement plans.

BTW....the Trump administration struck a tougher posture than did the Obama administration on two of the banks, Deutsche Bank and UBS.

Lying Gatlin! Obama only gave them all a 1 year extension. Trump gave those two banks 3 year extensions. He gave the other three banks 5 year extensions. Trump is very much the weakling banker lackey. Sad to say, but that worthless Kenyan is tougher and more pro-American than el Donaldo.

This is posted in the article, and also I quoted Obama's 1 year extension in my post #1. Read the truth, if you can handle it, blind liar.

THAT PORTION IS TRUE. BUT …

The headline is a lie and the article is misleading yellow journalism by presenting only partial facts….just enough facts to dupe the you ignorant bastards who have nothing in mind except to discredit Trump.

The main question the article neglected to answer was WHAT were the waivers for? Only the retirement funds, right? The secondary question is why were the waivers required and granted?

The second thing not mentioned was that the extended temporary one-year waiver was only part of the Obama plan….the second part of Obama’s plan was to extend an IMPORTANT and NECESSARY portion of waivers to all banks by another five years. Trump knows the banks HAD to have the extension to save pension funds for MILLIONS of people. He extended the waiver on the retirement plans for the same reason Obama was going to have to for another five years. It is IMPOSSIBLE to liquidate BILLIONS and BILLIONS and BILLIONS of dollars in MILLIONS and MILLIONS of retire plans. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DO SO. The banks still had to pay the fines and Deutsche Bank paid the most….$3.5 Billion. Deutsche Band and UBS only got a three-year waiver on the retirement instead of the five-year waiver on the retirement plans the other received. WHY? That is not stated anywhere.

You obviously don’t know enough about the situation to intelligently discuss it. The only thing you do is take a couple of sentences out of the misleading article….quote them, and believe them because that’s ALL the information the article presents to you.

REMEMBER, the key questions: The waivers were not blanket waivers from PUNISHMENT as the article suggests….what were the waivers for and why were they absolutely necessary?

If you want to discuss that, then “I’m Your Huckleberry.” If you don’t have enough information to intelligently discuss what is actually going on with the waivers….then go learn about them and get back to me.

#21. To: Gatlin, evading the law and penalties, verdict (#12)

Without waivers, criminal convictions for market manipulation would have disqualified banks’ asset-management units under U.S. law.

Then the assets should have been turned over to a more trustworthy and law abiding Bank/Management Firm, not what Obama and Trump are doing which is evading the lawful verdict and penalties.

Obama is a scofflaw, and by following in his footsteps Trump is too. He's had ample time for his financial officials to turn the accounts over to a responsible bank, and his administration has done nothing. Upping the number of years just adds insult to injury.

Trump needs to fire some employees and get some people in there who can and will do the job of forcing these sleazy banks into compliance with the law. Lock 'em up!

Trump Administration Waives Punishment For Convicted Banks ...
That is a LIE.

The waivers DID NOT exclude PUNISHMENT for convicted banks....they WERE CONVICTED and they paid their fines as prescribed by law. That was their punishment and there was NO waiver to that PUNISHMENT.

All that happened with the waivers was that:

The U.S. Labor Department issued waivers to the asset-management units of Citigroup and four other banks, allowing them to continue to manage corporate retirement plans.
The U.S. Labor department simply could not have caused those banks to liquidate BILLIONS upon BILLIONS of dollars in retirement funds assets without causing catastrophic results in the stock market, the U.S. dollar and runs on banks the likes which have never seen before in history.

You need to stop grabbing some headline you agree with and busting your ass to post the story on LF.

The only one lying here is you, Obama apologist. Trump needs to get his administration to come down on these outlaw banks like a ton of bricks!

You yourself quoted that they're disqualified from asset management under the law. They're not allowed to manage assets due to a conviction. The only reason they're getting away with it now is because of Obama, and now Trump's exemption extensions.

Why are you backing Obama and convicted criminal Banks? You're nutz! How much stock do you own in these criminal outfits, more than George Soros?

It has been done already. The banks were convicted and fined BILLIONS of dollars. That was “A TON OF BRICKS” to the banks....losing money to fines.

The banks running the retirement funds had NOTHING to do with the crime the banks were convicted of. The headline is a BIG LIE.

The Trump administration did NOT waive punishment for convicted banks.
The waiver is simply to allow the banks to continue administering the retirement funds, something the U.S. Labor Department has been looking into since May 20,2015, after the Security Exchange Commission granted a series of waivers to the banks allowing them to continue their usual securities business, after they agreed to plead guilty to criminal charges.

The U.S. Labor Department, the Security Exchange Commission and many....many....others can see the definitively positive reasons to let these banks continue to own and actively run the retirement funds. It has NOTHING to do with their convictions and it has NOTHING to do with PUNISHMENT.

What is there about this that you simply fail to understand?

The headline is a BOLD FACE LIE and the article is PURELY AN ANTI-TRUMP HIT PIECE which is trying to make much to do about nothing. Prohibiting the banks from running the retirement accounts for millions of people would solve nothing and only be punishing those people depending on the proper functioning of those retirement accounts for their daily living.

You are blinded by your extreme hatred for Trump and unable to think rationally....not that you have been.

Spend your time on something important....stop wasting it on trying to defend a LIE.

This Is Who George Soros Trusts to Oversee His $25 Billion Family Office .

George Soros tapped Dawn Fitzpatrick from UBS Asset Management to oversee his $25 billion family office, replacing Ted Burdick a year after he stepped into the role, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Fitzpatrick, 46, was global head of equities, multi-asset investing and the O’Connor hedge fund unit at UBS Group AG’s money management arm. She’ll be the first woman to hold the CIO role at Soros Fund Management, which is among the largest family offices in the U.S.

In late 2016, the Obama administration extended temporary one-year waivers to five banks — Citigroup, JPMorgan, Barclays, UBS and Deutsche Bank. Late last month, the Trump administration issued new, longer waivers for those same banks, granting Citigroup, JPMorgan, and Barclays five-year exemptions.

So shouldn't the headline be, "Trump Administration Extends Obama Administration Waivers"?
