Conflicting Reports Emerge About Subpoena for Deutsche Bank in Trump-Russia Investigation

Deutsche Bank subpoenaed to provide Trump accounts' data

Special counsel Robert Mueller's office says more than $6.7 million has been spent as part of his investigation into Russian election interference and possible coordination with associates of President Donald Trump.

In February, The Guardian reported Deutsche Bank reviewed Trump's accounts to see if there were any "suspicious connections" to Russian Federation but didn't find any links.

But despite multiple United States media outlets reporting that Mr Mueller's investigation had expanded to include Mr Trump's personal financial records, one of the President's lawyers said that was not the case.

Handelsblatt reported that the subpoena arrived "a few weeks ago", and that the most important files relevant to the request have already been sent to Mueller's team.

Although limited in detail, the spending report offers the first insight into the scope and scale of Mueller's investigation, which has resulted so far in criminal charges against four people who worked on Trump's presidential campaign.

In July, Trump said in an interview with the New York Times that if Mueller examined his family's finances beyond any relationship with Russian Federation he'd consider it "a violation".


In a statement, the bank said it cooperates with official investigators but would not discuss individual cases. It was the first time Mr. Trump had said anything other than Mr. Flynn was sacked for lying to Mr. Pence.

Before Trump became president, the bank loaned the Trump Organization hundreds of millions of dollars for various real estate projects.

The day before Mr. Trump tweeted: "I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

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. That figure includes a $170-million loan Trump took out to finish a hotel in Washington. Mueller's investigation had expanded to examine a broad range of transactions involving the president's businesses, including dealings by his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, a person familiar with the probe told Bloomberg News after the publication of the Times interview. Those trades are being investigated in multiple probes in the USA and Europe.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated Sekulow's denial of the reporting during a press briefing Tuesday afternoon.
