Mueller Subpoenas Trump's Financial Records From A German Bank

Mueller Subpoenas Trump's Financial Records From A German Bank

A U.S. federal investigator probing alleged Russian interference in the 2016 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.

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

He confirmed the bank in question was Deutsche Bank. "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources".

Mueller's investigation - which is looking into alleged Russian interference into last year's US election and whether Trump's winning campaign assisted in those efforts - appears to be entering a new phase.

Kevin Durant comments on his ejection after altercation with DeMarcus Cousins
Yet Durant assured that he wouldn't allow to get his emotions get the best of him at a critical time in the game. Durant spoke about his ejection afterwards. "I got to be more focused, I got to be more poised", he said.

In a statement, the bank said it cooperates with official investigators but would not discuss individual cases.

In the months since Robert Mueller began sniffing around the White House for evidence of electoral misbehavior, President Donald Trump has watched warily to see whether the special counsel would sift through his personal finances. More significantly, he also is providing details to Mueller about the Trump campaign's approach to Flynn's controversial meeting with a Russian envoy during the presidential transition.

Trump has also said that it would be a "violation" if Mueller went into his family's finances instead of focusing directly on the mechanisms of influencing the election, part of suggestions that he could fire the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Deutsche Bank has been one of the few major banks willing to regularly lend to Trump, who alienated large banks in NY with his past financial troubles.

Warm Tuesday, but wet snow possible late this week
We will likely start Tuesday in the upper 50°s to near 60°, but once the front passes temperatures will drop quickly. Monday night: 20 percent chance of patchy drizzle before 1 a.m., then a slight chance of light rain after 1 a.m.

However, documents uncovered in the probe do touch on the President's business, including a former associated Felix Sater telling Trump Organization lawyer Michael Cohen that in pursuing a real estate deal in Moscow he "will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected". That figure includes a $170-million loan Trump took out to finish a hotel in Washington.

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.

"Deutsche Bank did not contact us regarding people connected with the Trump administration".

Meanwhile, White House attorneys denied the Bloomberg report as well.
