Mueller Reportedly Crosses Trump “Red Line” Of Probing Business Transactions

RobertSMueller-072017-lt.jpg

FOREX INVESTORS  Mueller Reportedly Crosses Trump Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly expanded his investigation of alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign to include President Donald Trump’s business transactions.

A report from Bloomberg citing a person familiar with the probe said Mueller is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates.

The report comes a day after Trump suggested in an interview with the New York Times that Mueller would be crossing a “red line” by looking into his and his family’s finances.

“I would say yes,” Trump said when asked if Mueller’s investigation would cross a “red line” if it expanded to look at his family’s finances. “I think that’s a violation. Look, this is about Russia.”



Mueller Reportedly Crosses Trump

 

The Times noted Trump never said he would order the Justice Department to fire Mueller, nor would he outline circumstances under which he might do so.

The person told Bloomberg investigators are looking at Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008.

Trump lawyer John Dowd said he was unaware of the expansion of the investigation but argued the transactions mentioned are well beyond the mandate of the special counsel.

Bloomberg said the investigation partly stems from a wide-ranging money-laundering probe launched by then-Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who was fired by Trump in March.Like up on FACEBOOK

Australia Business Confidence | Data | Chart | Calendar

FOREX INVESTORS Australian business conditions  The NAB business confidence index in Australia went up to 9 in June of 2017 from 7 in a month earlier. The business conditions rose the most to the level around pre-global financial crisis at 15 (from 11 in May) and well above the long-run average of 5. By component, profitability (15 from 10) and trading conditions/sales (21 from 15) drove most of the increase, which is an indication that demand is seeing a much needed improvement. Meantime, employment conditions were steady at solid levels (7). Confidence levels were currently positive for all industries – even in mining where conditions had turned down – but the magnitude varied. “We continue to be pleasantly surprised by just how upbeat the business sector is, given the context of a fairly beleaguered household sector that has been weighed down by limited wages growth and record levels of debt,” said Alan Oster, NAB’s Chief economist. Business Confidence in Australia averaged 5.80 from 1997 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 20 in April of 2002 and a record low of -30 in October of 2008.
