Mueller Subpoenas Trump Finances

Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly subpoenaed Trump family financial records from the German financial giant Deutsche Bank, a move that could signal a major new direction for his inquiry.

Deutsche Bank has so far not accommodated or discussed American requests for information about the Trumps' accounts. The German business newspaper Handelsblatt, which first reported the subpoena, quoted a spokesman saying that the bank cooperates with official investigators but would not discuss individual cases.

Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, however, said he had "confirmed that the news reports that the special counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the president are false." White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters the stories were "completely false."

The Trump family's dealings with Deutsche Bank have been a focus of opponents for months. Kushner's company received a $285 million loan from the bank one month before Election Day. Democrats on the House Financial Services Committee asked the bank in May for information about reports that it might have been a conduit for Russian money for the Trump family.

Deutsche Bank has paid hundreds of millions dollars in fines to regulators for its involvement in money laundering and other financial crimes, which the lawmakers cited in their request for details about what the bank knows about its dealings with the Trumps.

"Baghdad Bobette" Sanders says it didn't happen. So that settles it. That one is alternative facts.

It's therefore a lock.

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 so-called Russian mirror trades affair, a person briefed on the matter said. The bank has settled several U.S. investigations into how it helped Russian clients move money out of the country but a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice is still outstanding.

This has been under long investigation by the DoJ.

She should know at the time of the statement. Trump's attorney's would have to be notified. It was Jay Sekulow who made the revelation.

Deutsche Bank, one of the Trump Organization's major lenders on its real estate projects, said it would not comment on any of its individual clients.

However in a statement to NBC News, it said: "[Our bank] takes its legal obligations seriously and remains committed to co-operating with authorised investigations into this matter."
