A $285 million loan that Deutsche Bank issued to one of Jared Kushner’s family companies just a month before Election Day has raised the eyebrows of federal prosecutors.

Brooklyn-based prosecutors requested record related to the loan, which provided Kushner Cos., a real estate company, $74 million more than what was paid for the property, the Washington Post reports

Calling it a “routine” transaction, a spokesman for the firm said the company is cooperating with federal officials.

In October 2016, the company entered into a refinancing deal connected to the 2015 purchase of four primarily empty retail floors of the former New York Times.

Kushner, the son-in-law of Trump, was simultaneously running the company while helping lead the campaign.

Federal investigators are trying to determine how the California couple that opened fire at a holiday party obtained a $28,500 that may have financed their massacre, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Syed Rizwan Farook earned about $50,000 a year as a health inspector for San Bernardino County, and his wife was a stay-at-h0me home.

Just weeks before the massacre, they received a $28,500 loan from an online lender, Prosper Marketplace, which acts “as a middleman matching borrowers and investors who fund their loans,” the Los Angeles Times wrote.

A terror group would “be competing with all these funds to get that loan, and they’d have no certainty of who the borrower was,” said Bryce Mason, who has invested in Prosper loans and is chief investment officer of Direct Lending Investments, a La Cañada Flintridge hedge fund.

Former Boston Cop Admits to Lying to FBI During Drug Investigation

By Steve Neavling

A veteran Boston police officer who lied to the FBI is resigning as part of a plea agreement that would prevent him from going to jail, the Boston Herald reports.

David Michael Fitzgerald, 49, admitted making false statements to the FBI on April 27 while agents investigated a street-level drug dealer. They discovered that Fitzgerald made cash loans to the drug dealer.

“Fitzgerald falsely stated to the FBI special agents were investigating that (1) the purposed of his earlier meeting that day with the Associate was simply social in nature and (2) he had never loaned money to the Associate,” court documents state. Fitzgerald has known the drug dealer and bookmaker since 2006, the filings state.

Fitzgerald’s attorney said his client is a good man who made a bad mistake.

“He was a very well respected police officer,” the attorney, Kenneth Anderson, said. “He’s a great guy who had a lapse of judgment and made a mistake.”

FBI Has Criminal Records on Roughly 1 of 3 Americans, Causing Headaches for Those Never Charged

By Steve Neavling

The FBI’s enormous criminal database includes records of about one out of every three American adults, Gizmodo reports.

The FBI has criminal records on more than 77.7 million Americans, and the bureau is adding between 10,000 and 12,000 new people a day.

The arrest records can be problematic because they don’t typically describe whether the person was convicted or just accused.

The records are often used for employment, loans and housing.

New York Times

In 2007, while he was New Jersey’s ranking federal prosecutor, Christopher J. Christie – now the Republican candidate for governor – lent one of his top aides $46,000. But he failed to report the loan as required under federal and state ethics rules.

The aide, Michele A. Brown, borrowed the money from Mr. Christie while he was United States attorney for New Jersey and she was his executive assistant and counsel, according to mortgage records in Morris County, N.J.

Ms. Brown was promoted to first assistant United States attorney after Mr. Christie resigned last December to begin his campaign for governor.
