Mueller subpoenas Deutsche Bank over loans to Trump

Director Defends FBI After Trump Says Bureau Is in 'Tatters'

A lawyer for U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Deutsche Bank has not received any subpoena for financial records relating to the president or his family as part of the special counsel's Russian Federation probe. The Guardian reported in July that executives at the bank were anticipating they would receive a formal demand for banking records about the president and had already established informal contacts with Mueller's investigators.

Mr Mueller is investigating claims of collusion between Trump's aides and Russian officials while also probing Moscow's influence in the USA presidential election which brought Trump, the billionaire businessman into power. The Deutsche subpoenas were sent several weeks ago, according to the Bloomberg report.

Mueller was appointed in May after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who had been leading the investigation.

The White House has said reports asserting special counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed financial records connected to the President "are completely false".

Mueller subpoenas Deutsche Bank over loans to Trump

Asked if delving into his and his family's finances unrelated to the Russian Federation probe would cross a red line, Trump replied, "I would say yeah". He said that they have confirmed it with the bank itself and "other sources".

Deutsche Bank has so far not accommodated or discussed American requests for information about the Trumps' accounts.

Trump staged the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in 2013, and his longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, has acknowledged that he reached out to the Russian government to ask for help with a prospective Trump Tower project there. Robert Mueller, who is heading the Russian Federation investigation, has reportedly demanded Deutsche Bank hand over details of Trump's accounts with the organization.

Deutsche Bank, which has loaned the Trump organization hundreds of millions of dollars for real estate ventures, said it would not comment on any of its clients.

Trump had liabilities of at least $130 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 U.S. Office of Government Ethics. Russian Federation has denied USA intelligence agencies' conclusion that it meddled in the campaign and Trump has said there was no collusion with Moscow.
