Russian Federation inquiry zeroes in on bank records

Deutsche Bank turns over Trump documents after Mueller subpoena: Report

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

President Trump owes Deutsche Bank over $300 million for real estate deals made prior to becoming president, and now Robert Mueller wants to take a closer look at Trump's accounts with the global megabank. The subpoena is part of a probe by special counsel Robert Mueller and his team to determine whether the president's campaign was involved in Russian efforts to influence the U.S. election.

Mueller, of course, is looking for a Russian Federation connection with this subpoena, but Trump and his lawyers are unlikely to be sympathetic to that interpretation, and will likely cast it as an unreasonable intrusion into the president's personal life - part of the "witch hunt" the president keeps decrying.

Jay Sekulow, one of Trump's personal lawyers, said Deutsche Bank has not received any subpoena for financial records relating to the president as part of Mueller's probe.

Congressional Democrats had been calling on the bank to provide more information on Trump's $300 million in debt, but they were rebuffed-as Deutsche Bank said that sharing client data would be illegal unless they received a formal request to do so.

Deutsche Bank provided millions of dollars to the Trump Organisation's businesses in the early 2000s when it was spurned by U.S. lenders.

It's not clear who Mueller is targeting or whether other members of Trump's campaign team under scrutiny by the special counsel may also have had business connections to Deutsche Bank.

A person close to the matter said Deutsche Bank received the subpoena several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions.

A source close to Deutsche Bank said the bank had run checks on Trump's financial dealings with Russian Federation.

According to Bloomberg, he owes the bank about $300 million.

As Mueller's investigation unfolds, Trump has gone on the offensive. Allegedly the bank helped finance the renovation of the Old Post Office in Washington, the purchase of the Doral golf course in Florida and the construction of an office building in Chicago.

In a July 9 interview with the New York Times, Trump said Mueller should not extend his investigation into Trump's finances if they were not directly related to the Russian Federation accusations. The only conclusion that we can arrive at with any certitude is that Trump is kidding himself if he thinks this investigation will conclude by the end of the year.

Deutsche Bank is not the only Trump-related business interest that is attracting the attention of investigators.

Internal Deutsche Bank documents seen by Reuters feature the names of Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and his wife, Kathleen, in a series of client profiles.

Deutsche Bank countersued and the two sides eventually settled.
