Trump's Lawyer Denies Reports Mueller Subpoenaed Deutsche Bank Financial Records

A person familiar with Mueller's investigation told the news agency Reuters on Tuesday that Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from the USA special counsel several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, confirming a report by German daily Handelsblatt published on the same day.

Bloomberg reported Tuesday that Mueller issued a subpoena to Deutsche Bank for the information weeks ago.

He confirmed the bank in question was Deutsche Bank.

In June, Deutsche Bank already rejected demands by US House Democrats to provide details of Trump's finances, saying sharing client data would be illegal unless it received a formal request to do so.

Mueller's inquiry into alleged Russian election meddling and potential Team Trump involvement in it has moved closer to the President's inner circle since the indictment and guilty plea of disgraced National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

In May, five Democratic members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan asking the bank to turn in any records relating to Trump's accounts and any ties to Russian Federation.

On Tuesday morning, Bloomberg reported that special counsel Robert Mueller was taking a look at President Donald Trump's finances.

U.S. trade deficit rises to $48.7 billion on record imports
On the other hand, the Commerce Department said the value of exports edged down by less than a tenth of a % to USD195.9 billion. Historically speaking, the USA imports more good than it exports, but runs a modest trade surplus for services.

In an interview this past July Trump told The New York Times that Mueller would cross a red line if he examined his or his family's finances. Russian Federation has denied United States intelligence agencies' conclusion that it meddled in the campaign and Trump has said there was no collusion with Moscow.

The relatively light charges against the former general suggest that he is cooperating in the investigation, which Trump has called a witch hunt.

When approached about the Dowd comment, the person familiar with the matter reiterated that the bank had received a subpoena.

Interested in Russia Investigation?

Deutsche Bank has been one of the few major banks willing to regularly lend to Trump, who alienated large banks in NY with his past financial troubles.

Deutsche Bank has also come under scrutiny for activities in the same world it shares with Trump, real estate investment.

Mr Trump had liabilities of at least $US130 million ($171 million) to Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, a unit of the German bank, according to a federal financial disclosure form released in June by the US Office of Government Ethics. Above, a Deutsche Bank building in London.
