The Senate Intelligence Committee has requested information about President Donald Trump and his top aides from a financial intelligence unit in the Treasury Department that imposed a $10 million civil penalty on Trump Taj Mahal in 2015 for multiple violations of anti-money laundering laws.
The committee wants to see any information relevant to its Russia investigation the Treasury agency has gathered, including evidence that might include possible money laundering, according to a committee aide who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Also at issue: to what extent, if at all, people close to Vladimir Putin have invested in Trump's real estate empire.
The request, made in recent weeks, comes as part of the Senate's investigation into whether Trump associates colluded with the Russian effort to interfere in the election.
The FBI is also investigating that issue, but that probe is now under a cloud after Trump fired FBI director James Comey. A former senior Treasury official said that agency would have the authority to demand from any bank with a U. branch, including foreign banks, relevant records of transactions by Trump, his family members or his associates.
White House spokesman Michael Short said the president is confident the investigation will exonerate his campaign."There’s a process, and that process is moving forward, and we’re confident that once it's complete everyone will again see that there is no 'there,' there when it comes to alleged collusion."Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (Fin CEN) has assisted in the ongoing FBI counter intelligence investigation into Trump administration ties with Russia, multiple U. Fin CEN also maintains databases of reports of suspicious and cash transactions.

His remaining stake was wiped out when the company was acquired in 2014 by billionaire financier and Trump advisor Carl Icahn, who shut down the casino in October.
Fin CEN imposed a $10 million civil penalty in 2015 against Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort for "willful and repeated violations of the Bank Secrecy Act," and ordered the casino to conduct "periodic external audits to examine its anti-money laundering" compliance program and "provide those audit reports to Fin CEN," according to a Treasury Department statement announcing the penalty.
