Robert Mueller 'demands Donald Trump's Deutsche Bank accounts'

Tech Trips, Regal Is Bought, Deutsche Bank Gets Subpoena- 5 Things You Must Know

United States special counsel Robert Mueller has asked Germany's Deutsche Bank to provide records of accounts held by Donald Trump, according to reports.

In an interview this past July Trump told The New York Times that Mueller would cross a red line if he examined his or his family's finances.

"No subpoena has been issued or received", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a briefing.

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

Mr Mueller issued a subpoena to the bank several weeks ago demanding data on transactions linked to the United States president, Reuters news agency and a German newspaper say.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller departs after briefing the U.S. House Intelligence Committee on his investigation of potential collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., June 20, 2017.

The special counsel is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians connected with the Kremlin in the lead-up to the 2016 election. Russian Federation has denied USA intelligence agencies' conclusion that it meddled in the campaign and Trump has said there was no collusion with Moscow.

Deutsche Bank has previously rejected similar demands, citing privacy laws.

That last one was just one piece of a broad campaign Trump undertook to hinder the Russian Federation investigation in general and the investigation of Flynn in particular, which reportedly included asking top officials in the intelligence community to pressure the FBI to shut it down and pressing Republican senators to end their own investigation.

Deutsche Bank did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

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. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty. Manafort and Gates pleaded not guilty.

So far, the special counsel has charged four people as part of the investigation including Manafort and Flynn. Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty Friday to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, becoming the fourth associate of the president ensnared by Mueller's probe.
