Deutsche Bank gets subpoena from Mueller on Trump accounts

Deutsche Bank has been one of the few major banks willing to regularly lend to Donald Trump

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller zeroed in on President Donald Trump's business dealings with Deutsche Bank as his investigation into alleged Russian meddling in us elections widens.

Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election and Trump has called the special counsel's investigation a "witch hunt".

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

A US official with knowledge of Mueller's probe said one reason for the subpoenas was to find out whether Deutsche Bank may have sold some of Trump's mortgage or other loans to Russian state development bank VEB or other Russian banks that now are under USA and European Union sanctions.

Sekulow was responding to a report from German business newspaper Handelsblatt that Mueller had subpoenaed records from Deutsche Bank as part of his investigation into possible Russian involvement in the US presidential election campaign.

Mr Mueller is looking into claims of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election and potential collusion by Mr Trump's team - an allegation denied by the President and Russian authorities. Mueller incorporated several ongoing investigations within the Justice Department including those of Trump campaign contacts with Russian Federation, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's business activities and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

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

Interested in Russia Investigation?

There was no immediate response to the Deutsche Bank subpoena from Trump's lawyers. "Look, this is about Russian Federation".

In June Deutsche Bank cited privacy laws when it rejected a request by House Democrats to provide details of Trump's finances. That figure includes a $170-million loan Trump took out to finish a hotel in Washington. The one exception was Deutsche Bank, to which Trump owed $364 million as of the end of past year.

Former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates appeared in court after being indicted by a federal grand jury in October. 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. The special counsel has hired a small army of attorneys - 17 - to work the investigation.
