A 6.28 N.Y. Times article by Adam Liptak and Maggie Haberman lays out a very close relatonship between President Trump, retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and Kennedy’s adult son, Justin. The Times piece reports that the younger Kennedy was apparently more responsible than any other party for saving the Trump family’s business during a particularly rough period following the ’08 crash.

Quote: “The younger Mr. Kennedy spent more than a decade at Deutsche Bank, eventually rising to become the bank’s global head of real estate capital markets, and he worked closely with Mr. Trump when he was a real estate developer, according to two people with knowledge of his role. During Mr. Kennedy’s tenure, Deutsche Bank became Mr. Trump’s most important lender, dispensing well over $1 billion in loans to him for the renovation and construction of skyscrapers in New York and Chicago at a time other mainstream banks were wary of doing business with him because of his troubled business history.”
