Steve Bannon, along with the founders of Fusion GPS, seem to believe the Trump kids have engaged in criminal activity.

According to Michael Wolff's book, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon seems to believe that Donald Trump, Jr., and the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner could do prison time for money laundering.

Bannon made the assertions during interviews for Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

“You realize where this is going,” Bannon is quoted as saying. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to fucking Trump goes right through [former Trump campaign manager] Paul Manafort, Don Jr. and Jared Kushner. It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”

Bannon added, "It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit. The Kushner shit is greasy. They’re going to go right through that."

Adding credibility to Bannon's words are the founders of Fusion GPS, who penned an op-ed Tuesday setting the record straight about the Steele dossier encouraging investigators to "look into the bank records of Deutsche Bank and others that were funding Mr. Trump's businesses."

Fusion GPS co-founders Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch wrote that they “found widespread evidence that Mr. Trump and his organization had worked with a wide array of dubious Russians in arrangements that often raised questions about money laundering.”

Deutsche Bank has loaned billions of dollars to Trump, and he owes the bank about $300 million, according to Bloomberg.
