Conflicting Reports Emerge About Subpoena for Deutsche Bank in Trump-Russia Investigation

RED LINE CROSSED? New Mueller subpoena of Deutsche Bank takes aim at Trump family finances Trump's personal bank details handed over to Mueller's Russia investigation

U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller has asked Germany's Deutsche Bank to provide records of accounts held by Donald Trump, according to reports. The Deutsche subpoenas were sent several weeks ago, according to the Bloomberg report.

A spokeswoman for the German bank declined to comment on the reports when contacted by AFP, saying only that "Deutsche Bank takes its legal obligations seriously and remains committed to cooperating with authorized investigations into this matter". "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources", Dowd wrote in an email.

The special counsel is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians connected with the Kremlin in the lead-up to the 2016 election.

In February, The Guardian reported Deutsche Bank reviewed Trump's accounts to see if there were any "suspicious connections" to Russian Federation but didn't find any links.

On Monday, as he left the White House for a trip to Utah, Trump restated his sympathy for Flynn and his assertion that prosecutors should have pursued action against his general election rival, Hillary Clinton.

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow tried to sway the presidential election in favour of Mr Trump.

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". A string of bankruptcies at his hotel and casino businesses during the 1990s made most of Wall Street wary of extending him credit.

Holding Trump debt, particularly if some of it was or is soon due, could potentially give Russian banks some leverage over the US President, especially if they are state-owned, said a second US official familiar with Russian intelligence methods.

Deutsche Bank had been one of Trump's most reliable lenders.

Interested in Russia Investigation?

News of the Deutsche Bank subpoena may escalate Trump's vitriol toward investigators, which over the past week has included publicly attacking the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, whose reputation he declared to be " in tatters".

"I think that's a violation", Mr. Trump told the paper.

Trump got a $106 million loan from Deutsche Bank in 2011 to buy Doral, the golf resort in Miami, according to property filings with the local land register.
