Mueller subpoenas Deutsche Bank over loans to Trump

Mueller subpoenas Deutsche Bank over loans to Trump

Deutsche Bank told Bloomberg it "always cooperates with investigating authorities in all countries".

Trump's relationship with Deutsche Bank stretches back some two decades and the roughly $300 million he owes to the bank represents almost half of his outstanding debt, according to a July 2016 analysis compiled by Bloomberg news agency.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was said to have subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for the release of Trump's medical records.

The special counsel has over a dozen lawyers working for his office. No subpoena has been issued or received. "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources".

The story, which broke at Final Call press time December 4, drew more fire for an embattled president and besieged White House facing legal scrutiny.

"We have confirmed that the news reports that the special counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the president are false", Sekulow said in a statement.

Mr Mueller is investigating claims of collusion between Mr Trump and Russian Federation.

Deutsche Bank has loaned the Trump organization an estimated $300 million for its real estate dealings prior to Donald Trump becoming president.

A string of bankruptcies at his hotel and casino businesses during the 1990s made most of Wall Street wary of extending him credit.

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.

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow tried to sway the presidential election in favour of Mr Trump.

Deutsche Bank had been one of Trump's most reliable lenders.

VEB, as well as the Russian Agricultural Bank and Gazprombank, did not immediately reply to emailed requests for comment.

Deutsche Bank is not the only Trump-related business interest that is attracting the attention of investigators. We have official confirmation that the Trump finances subpoena was never sent, and we even know why.

Interested in Russia Investigation?

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".

The CNN and Post reports followed weekend tweets that sparked questions about what the president knew about Mr. Flynn's truthfulness, any contacts with the Russians and when the president knew it. Mr. Flynn was a fixture on the Trump campaign trail. And it claimed none of them were "persuasive".

Deutsche Bank countersued and the two sides eventually settled.
