Trump's Deutsche Bank Records Said to Be Subpoenaed by Mueller

  Trump's Deutsche Bank Records Said to Be Subpoenaed by Mueller Special prosecutor Robert Mueller zeroed in on President Donald Trump’s business dealings with Deutsche Bank AG as his investigation into alleged Russian meddling in U.S. elections widens. Mueller has issued a subpoena to Germany’s largest lender, forcing the bank to submit documents on its client relationship with Trump and his family, said a person briefed on the matter, who asked not to be identified because the action has not been announced.“Deutsche Bank always cooperates with investigating authorities in all countries,” the lender said in a statement to Bloomberg, declining to provide additional information.

But this isn’t the first time Mueller ’s team has examined financial records as part of its probe, and they retain campaign finance experts on staff. A Russian journalist faked his own death to track down his would- be assassins. Trump ’ s trade war with China looks like it’s back on.

Special suggest Robert Mueller has reportedly subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for economic facts on President Donald Trump and his associates as part of the research into potential collusion among the Trump campaign and Russia at some stage in the 2016 presidential election.

This German bank has dealt with Jared Kushner before.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for financial information on President Donald Trump and his associates as part of the investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

Multiple news outlets report that Germany’s largest bank received a request from Mueller’s team several weeks ago for data on money and financial transactions made by Trump and his associates.

It’s still unclear which specific individuals Mueller requested information on and whether the president himself was one of them. One of Trump’s personal lawyers, Jay Sekulow, disputes the reports. “We have confirmed that the news reports that the Special Counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the President are false,” he said in a statement. “No subpoena has been issued or received. We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources.”

Trump lawyer denies Deutsche Bank got subpoena on Trump accounts

  Trump lawyer denies Deutsche Bank got subpoena on Trump accounts 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 Russia probe.FRANKFURT/WASHINGTON, Dec 5 (Reuters) - A U.S. federal investigator probing alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election asked Deutsche Bank for data on accounts held by President Donald Trump and his family, a person close to the matter said on Tuesday, but Trump's lawyer denied any such subpoena had been issued.

That Mueller was going to start eventually looking — this was months ago that I warned you about this, by the way — that Mueller and his gang are gonna start looking into Trump ’ s finances pre-2016. Look at what Trump has already exposed about the operations of the deep state.

Yesterday Trump told the NY Times that it would be inappropriate for Mueller to look into his family’ s finances that have nothing to do with Russia But he left open the possibility as he expressed deep grievance over an investigation that has taken a political toll in the six months since he took office.

Trump’s family has relied Deutsche Bank for past business loans: The real estate company owned by Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and top White House adviser, finalized a $285 million loan from Deutsche Bank one month before election day as part of a refinancing package for one of Kushner’s company’s properties in Times Square.

The bank has also been linked to criminal activity. In January 2017, Deutsche Bank received $630 million in penalties because it was involved in a $10 billion Russian money-laundering scheme that involved the bank’s Moscow, New York, and London branches, CNN reports.

So far, four members of Trump’s inner circle have been charged in connection to the Mueller probe: former campaign chair Paul Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates, campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, and former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn. Only Papadopoulos and Flynn have pleaded guiltyand both are now working with investigators.

Donald Trump ’ s finances are reportedly causing concern for White House officials, who fear an attempt by special counsel Robert Mueller to look into the president’ s financial dealings will sink him, according to Michael Wolff.

Analysts are speculating that Kushner may be Mueller’s next big target, which may help explain why the special counsel’s office is asking for this information. But this isn’t the first time Mueller’s team has examined financial records as part of its probe, and they retaincampaign finance experts on staff.

Deutsche Bank declined to comment on the Reuters report when Vox called to confirm the story, but did tell NBC News that “Deutsche Bank takes its legal obligations seriously and remains committed to cooperating with authorized investigations into this matter.”

The Office of the Special Counsel also declined to comment when contacted by Vox.
