Reports: Trump Records At Deutsche Bank Subpoenaed By Mueller
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".
An internal investigation carried out by Deutsche Bank didn't yield any evidence of connections between the client relationship with Trump and the bank's mirror trades affair, a person briefed on the matter said.
Donald Trump's personal banking information has formally been turned over to Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor who is investigating whether the president's campaign conspired with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential election. (The Department of Justice did not respond to a request for comment.) And during the campaign, Deutsche Bank was separately under investigation by the Justice Department for its role in the 2008 financial crisis. The bank regularly cooperates with agencies in every country, the spokesman added. Several other media outlets had similar reports, also citing anonymous sources familiar with the situation. Handelsblatt appears to be the originator of the subpoena story.
In a statement, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), said, "Special Counsel Mueller's subpoena of Deutsche Bank would be a very significant development". Others, as you'll see, said that Judicial Watch's Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow was the Trump lawyer who denied this subpoena claims. We have official confirmation that the Trump finances subpoena was never sent, and we even know why.
FRANKFURT/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A us federal investigator probing alleged Russian interference in the 2016 usa 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.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also said the reports were false. United States investigators are demanding that it provide information on dealings linked to the Trumps, sources familiar with the matter toldHandelsblatt.
But Deutsche holds massive loans for two of Trump's most prized properties: the Miami-based Doral golf course, which Trump borrowed $125 million from Deutsche in 2012 to purchase, and his luxury hotel blocks from the White House, which Trump borrowed $170 million from Deutsche to bankroll in August of 2015, two months into his presidential campaign. It is public information that John Dowd is on the president's defense team.
The special counsel has over a dozen lawyers working for his office.
News of the subpoena was not unexpected. Democrats may have wanted to depose Deutsche Bank but Russian Federation was only an excuse.
Holding Trump debt, particularly if some of it was or is coming due, could potentially give Russian banks some leverage over Trump, especially if they are state-owned, said a second USA official familiar with Russian intelligence methods.
