BREAKING: Former bank executive’s son secretly helped FBI’s investigation, aided Adam Schiff against Trump [PHOTOS]
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
The son of a now-deceased Deutsche Bank executive has helped the FBI with probes related to the bank, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
Val Broeksmit, the son of senior executive Bill Broeksmit, reportedly had a trove of bank documents and spoke to the law enforcement agency following his father’s suicide.
The article goes on to state the following:
Deutsche Bank is facing scrutiny over its dealings with President Trump and his family. The House Intelligence and Financial Services committees have subpoenaed Deutsche Bank records relating to Trump.
The New York Times report, titled, “Me and My Whistleblower,” begins with the following:
One sunny Wednesday in February, a gangly man in a sports jacket and a partly unbuttoned paisley shirt walked into the Los Angeles field office of the F.B.I. At the reception desk, he gave his name — Val Broeksmit — and began to pace anxiously in the lobby.
Mr. Broeksmit couldn’t believe he was voluntarily meeting with the F.B.I. An unemployed rock musician with a history of opioid abuse and credit card theft, not to mention a dalliance with North Korea-linked hackers, he was accustomed to shunning if not fearing law enforcement. But two investigators had flown from the bureau’s New York office specifically to speak with him, and Mr. Broeksmit had found their invitation too seductive to resist. Now the agents arrived in the lobby and escorted him upstairs.
Meet the #DeutscheBank whistleblower, @BikiniRobotArmy, who inherited a top executive’s hard drive, a treasure trove of sketchy information. Complicated and conflicted as many whistleblowers are. https://t.co/YBlQTPsPY5 https://t.co/HFKVyjvRzB

The Times also reports that Fusion GPS latched on to Broeksmit, dumping $1,000 into his PayPal account on Jan. 26, 2017.
The money was from Glenn R. Simpson, a former journalist who ran a research company called Fusion GPS. Weeks earlier, it had rocketed to notoriety as the source of the so-called Steele Dossier — a report by a former intelligence agent containing salacious allegations against Mr. Trump. Mr. Simpson was searching for more dirt and, Mr. Broeksmit told me, he agreed to pay $10,000 for the Deutsche materials. (Mr. Simpson declined to be interviewed.)
Two days later the two met in the U.S. Virgin Islands and “began combing for material on Mr. Trump, Russia and Robert Mercer, a top Trump donor.”
The NY Times report states that Broeksmit then moved to Los Angeles “to drum up Hollywood interest in his life story.” And there, he was connected to Rep. Adam Schiff:
Early this year, a producer invited him to a dinner party. Among the guests was Moby, the electronic music legend, who told me he was impressed by Mr. Broeksmit’s exploits and existential sadness. Moby arranged an introduction to his friend Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, which had recently opened an investigation into Deutsche Bank’s relationship with Mr. Trump.
Early this year, @thelittleidiot heard about Val’s trove of files and connected him with @RepAdamSchiff. The @HouseIntel committee then subpoenaed Val this summer as part of its @realDonaldTrump–@DeutscheBank investigation. pic.twitter.com/NlND1uo33x

Inside newsrooms and investigative bodies around the world, one whistle-blower’s secret documents have become something of an open secret. “And so are the psychological strings that come attached. I pulled them more than anyone,” writes @davidenrich. https://t.co/34TaOHRDXq
