Deutsche Bank Records Said to Be Subpoenaed by Mueller

  • Deutsche Bank has been one of the few major banks willing to regularly lend to Donald Trump

Sekulow told CBS News' Major Garrett that Trump's legal team confirmed with sources at Deutsche Bank that the reports indicating Mueller's team requested Trump's bank records were false.

"Trump lawyer John Dowd said the information was passed to Trump by White House counsel Donald McGahn, who had been warned about Flynn's statement to the vice president by a senior Justice Department official".

Mueller's investigation - which is looking into alleged Russian interference into last year's US election and whether Trump's winning campaign assisted in those efforts - appears to be entering a new phase.

Mr Trump has repeatedly denied any financial connections with Russian Federation. He said that they have confirmed it with the bank itself and "other sources".

Deutsche Bank, which has loaned the Trump organisation hundreds of millions of dollars for real estate ventures, said it would not comment on any of its clients. Representative Maxine Waters of California and other Democrats have asked whether the bank's loans to Trump, made years before he ran for president, were in any way connected to Russian Federation.

Mueller incorporated several active investigations within the Justice Department including those of Trump campaign contacts with Russian Federation, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's business activities and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Deutsche Bank had been one of Trump's most reliable lenders. In July, he told the New York Times such an action would amount to crossing a red line.

According to The New York Times , Russian officials had threatened a boycott if they were barred from the Olympics . The IOC also suspended the Russian Olympic Committee until at least the closing ceremony in South Korea .

Many media outlets included the denial from Trump's attorney in their reports, but the idea of his bank being subpoenaed for his financial records makes for far juicier headlines.

"Trump was aware of the issue a couple of weeks before a conversation with then-FBI Director James B. Comey in which Comey said the president asked him if he could be lenient while investigating Flynn, whom Trump had just fired for misleading Pence about the nature of his conversations with the Russian", the Post said.

But until Mueller opts to bring his investigation into the public eye, we're unlikely to know for sure whether he's made a decision to cast his net so broadly.
