AP: Probe finds evidence of bank boss’ romance with top aide
MIAMI (AP) — Investigators say they found evidence a former Trump official who heads Latin America’s biggest development bank carried on a romantic relationship with his chief of staff. The Associated Press obtained a confidential report by a law firm hired by the Inter-American Development Bank’s board triggered by an anonymous complaint of misconduct against its president, Mauricio Claver-Carone. Investigators say it is reasonable to conclude the relationship existed since at least 2019, when both held senior positions on the National Security Council. Exhibit A is a “contract” the two purportedly drew up on the back of a restaurant place mat in which they outlined a timeline to divorce their spouses and get married. The report says Claver-Carone denies having the relationship.
