Trump Deutsche Bank records said to be subpoenaed by Mueller

Germany's Deutsche Bank has reportedly received a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Above a Deutsche Bank building in London

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

This may turn out to be no big deal - perhaps Mueller will find that all Trump's transactions with Deutsche Bank were above-board and free of any amusing business, and also that nothing he discovers there will lead to evidence of any other misconduct on Trump's part.

Handelsblatt said the subpoena requested information on the bank's dealings with the Trumps, where Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter, and her husband Jared Kushner are also clients.

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".

While Trump campaigned during the 2016 election, the bank rejected calls to be transparent about exactly how much money Trump owes and why.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney: "Evidently he feels like that's the right move for him and his family and the right time to do so". Information from ESPN's Mark Schlabach and Sam Khan Jr. and The Associated Press was used in this report.

The president declined to say what he would do if Mueller began such an examination, but he continued, "I think that's a violation". CNN reported that investigators are scrutinizing Trump and his associates' financial ties to Russian Federation.

Deutsche Bank management is ready to share information about the lender's dealings with Trump and is hopeful that doing so will help end the series of inquiries from Democrats, an executive at the bank, who asked not to be identified discussing private deliberations, has previously told Bloomberg News. "Look, this is about Russian Federation".

Mueller is investigating Russian attempts to influence the 2016 USA election and any possible collusion by Trump associates. The one exception was Deutsche Bank, to which Trump owed $364 million as of the end of previous year. In 2008 Trump sued the bank to get out of $40 million in guarantees he had made them on his loan.

For example, Patrick Fitzgerald was a special counsel who investigated a far narrower subject: a leak that exposed the identity of covert Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame.

In October, Manafort pleaded not guilty to charges including conspiracy to launder money and conspiracy against the United States. In a recent tweet, Trump admitted that he knew then-national security adviser Michael Flynn lied to the FBI about his conversations with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak when he fired him, which means Trump knew Flynn had committed a crime when he asked then-FBI Director James Comey to lay off investigating Flynn.
