From Daily Caller:
The documents consist of interview notes, handwritten statements and FBI reports compiled during the bureau’s investigation, which occurred between 1972 and 1974.
The FBI’s investigation centered on allegations that the Trump Management Company, which was owned by Trump’s father, Fred, discriminated against applicants for apartment rentals based on their race.
There was no finding of fault against the Trump company.
The company settled with the Justice Department by agreeing to rent to more minority applicants in 1975.
But the timing of the release of documents suggesting that President Donald Trump’s father and/or the company had been investigated over allegedly racist renting practices is interesting, coming right at the time where the intel community appears to be leaking things to harm the Trump administration.
The FBI records Twitter account seemed to play no favorites during the election, releasing documents both about Fred Trump and about Bill Clinton.
