Mueller's alleged Deutsche Bank subpoena very risky for Trump: Judge Napolitano

Deutsche Bank turns over Trump documents after Mueller subpoena: Report

United States special counsel Robert Mueller is reported to have subpoenaed President Donald Trump's financial records from Germany's Deutsche Bank, as part of his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from Mueller several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, the person added, confirming a report by German daily Handelsblatt published on Tuesday.

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. Then there was the day he spent driving around with Aras Agalarov - the Russian oligarch who connected Donald Trump Jr. with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, insisted the Bloomberg report was wrong at her Tuesday press briefing.

Mr Trump got a $106 million loan from Deutsche Bank in 2011 to buy Doral, the golf resort in Miami, according to Reuters. "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources", Dowd wrote in an email. Bloomberg had originally reported that Mueller "zeroed in" on Trump. The bank agreed to submit documents "on its relationship with [President] Trump and his family", which go back nearly 20 years, according to an anonymous source.

Earlier this year, Mr Trump said pursuing his personal finances would be a breach of Mr Mueller's role as special counsel.

Deutsche Bank for months has rebuffed calls by Democratic lawmakers to provide more transparency over the roughly $300 million Trump owed to the bank for his real estate dealings prior to becoming president.

It's clear, Harding tells Rolling Stone, that Deutsche Bank Moscow "was compromised" and did this "unseemly, Faust-like deal with VTB to make very big profits, very quickly and to stun its rivals in Moscow, other investment banks, just by having the right people with the right FSB connections".

For instance, weeks before news broke of a salacious dossier detailing alleged leverage Russian Federation may hold over then President-elect Donald Trump, Harding and a colleague were in a London pub meeting with an ex-British intelligence officer named Christopher Steele about a story they were working on. In an interview this July, Trump told The New York Times that examination of his or his family's finances by Mueller would cross a red line. Trump sued the bank and other lenders in 2008, demanding $3 billion in damages, claiming they broke agreements in the construction and financing of a Chicago hotel. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty. Manafort and Gates pleaded not guilty.
