NEW YORK (AP) -- Recently filed federal charges against President Donald Trump's ex-campaign chairman Paul Manafort could also pose legal and regulatory risks for the banks that loaned him millions of dollars against his New York real estate in recent years.
The most serious exposure may be for a Rhode Island-based bank that employed a "conspirator" in Manafort's scheme to obtain a loan he couldn't afford, according to the 32-count new indictment unsealed this week.
Dubbed "Lender B" in court papers, Citizens Bank not only lent Manafort $3.4 million based off of fraudulent documents but, in another case, appeared to help Manafort avoid being caught by sending back a crudely falsified financial statement that had been sent to them from a Manafort associate, according to federal prosecutors.
"Looks Dr'd," the unnamed banker allegedly wrote. "Can't someone just do a clean excel doc and pdf to me??"

Mueller has got to be shut down. Trump, wake up!
What are you waiting for, President Trump?
Mueller says he doesn’t believe the valuation.
So tell me Mr. Attorney...what’s a house worth? Some book you look that up in?
Mueller’s a Democrat. Only idiots like that believe that value can be assigned by a bureaucrat, like Prevailing Wage tables.
The bank can believe what they want to. That’s why they have appraisers. If they go with the risk, it’s their business. Trying to impose pricing is a typical Communist misunderstanding of market value.
It’s worth whatever you can get for it.
Doesn’t this sound like WhiteWater?
LOL. Bankers in trouble. That’s hilarious. A fine, possibly, too small to even deter future malfeasance. Geez, what country does the author think this is?
This Noob is just a ray of sunshine!
And Mueller has jurisdiction for any of this, how?
Another “ham sandwich” bites the dust. Hey Muel! Any news on the Russki “collusion” thingy yet or was that just a bunch of “Democrat” bull**** to get you and the unemployed Clintoon lawyers a government job?
The law says prosecutors have discretion, so selective prosecution is perfectly legal.
I thought this whole mueller “special” council was to determine if President Trump colluded with the russians?
A year has passed, and mueller and his minions have come up with approximately jack/shit as far as President Trump is concerned.
Probably because there is no “there” there.
This whole circus witch hunt needs to be shut down NOW. Who gives a crap about what the socialist-democrats and their CNN attack dogs say.
Shitcan mueller, the FBI, the DOJ, and start from scratch.
They’re ALL dirty, they’re ALL in on it, and the only collusion going on is with the MSM, the socialist-democrats, the McConnell RINO party, and all of their lackeys attempting to foment a coup d’ etat against a duly elected sitting President.
One way to shut it down is to pardon both of them the same way Clinton pardoned his drug trafficing brother, Susan McDougal,Porta Rican terrorists, and multi-million dollar pal , donor, and tax cheat Marc Rich
Who is following the money that ran through the Clinton foundation. Talk about massive corruption... Paul Manafort does not even amount to peanuts compared to that.
The original investigations intent was to show collaboration between Mr. Trump and the Russians. Now its the banks? This guy doesn’t have a clue of what he’s looking for. A loose cannon.
