Trump lawyer: Deutsche Bank has not received subpoena for Trump records

Mueller is investigating alleged Russian attempts to influence the 2016 United States presidential election and potential collusion by Trump aides.

The probe into Russia's influence over the last staged elections in the United States of America has continued to gather steam as U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly asked Germany's Deutsche Bank to provide records of accounts held by President Donald Trump. "No subpoena has been issued or received".

This may turn out to be no big deal - perhaps Mueller will find that all Trump's transactions with Deutsche Bank were above-board and free of any amusing business, and also that nothing he discovers there will lead to evidence of any other misconduct on Trump's part. Deutsche Bank spokesman Chalie Olivier told Newsweek the bank declined to comment on the matter.

Why is Deutsche Bank so important? He said that they have confirmed it with the bank itself and "other sources". The Deutsche subpoenas were sent several weeks ago, according to the Bloomberg report.

At this point, we don't know exactly what Mueller is looking for in the Deutsche Bank records.

In June, President Trump disclosed that he owes the bank roughly $130 million.

As is to be expected when he feels fussed, the President may react badly to this news, especially after having previously warned that, "if Mueller examined his family's finances beyond any relationship with Russian Federation he'd consider it "a violation", as Bloomberg recalls.

Trump says Flynn's actions during presidential transition were 'lawful'
Inspector general Michael Horowitz is leading a broader examination of the FBI's investigation of Clinton's emails. "Last night at three in the morning, I got a call", he told a crowd of about 400 supporters.

Mueller filed charges against Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates on October 30.

Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election and Mr Trump has said there was no collusion.

- There's the question of whether obstruction of justice took place, for which evidence is growing by the day.

On Friday, Mueller revealed a guilty plea by Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, who admitted lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents. (Trump's lawyer denies he meant the tweet this way, and Trump denies Comey's account of their conservation).

In 2012, his Trump International Hotel Hotel and Tower in Chicago was loaned up to $640m, according to a property filing. CNN reported that investigators are scrutinizing Trump and his associates' financial ties to Russian Federation.

During his White House campaign, Trump said he would seek to improve ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which had been frequently strained during President Barack Obama's administration.

The figures were revealed in a Justice Department report released Tuesday. And nobody has more to hide than the president himself; he didn't withhold his tax returns because he's so modest about how wealthy he is.
