Mueller's Trump Finances Subpoena Was Never Sent, Here's Why

G20 Leaders Meet In St. Petersburg For The Summit

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has spent more than $3.2 million in the opening months of his federal criminal investigation into Russian interference in last year's USA election and whether President Donald Trump or anyone close to him colluded in it.

In a July 9 interview with the New York Times, Trump said Mueller should not extend his investigation into Trump's finances if they were not directly related to the Russian Federation accusations.

Mueller's probe, established on May 17, is mandated to continue the FBI investigation into the Russian government's alleged efforts to interfere with the 2016 United States presidential election. The Deutsche subpoenas were sent several weeks ago, according to the Bloomberg report. Trump has a long history of shady dealings - outright scams such as Trump University, refusing to pay vendors who supplied him with goods and services, bankruptcies that allowed him to skate away from huge debts while others were left holding the bag. Mueller also disclosed that he secured a guilty plea from George Papadopoulos, who was a junior foreign-policy adviser to the Trump campaign, for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about contacts with Russian operatives.

Mr Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russian Federation, calling the allegations a "witch hunt".

- There's the question of whether obstruction of justice took place, for which evidence is growing by the day. (Trump's lawyer denies he meant the tweet this way, and Trump denies Comey's account of their conservation).

"One obvious question is why Trump and those around him expressed interest in improving relations with Russian Federation as a top foreign policy priority, and whether or not any personal considerations played any part in that", the second official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. Those trades are being investigated in multiple probes in the U.S. and Europe.

- Tuesday the New York Times reported that while national security aide K.T. McFarland told Congress she was unaware of the nature of Flynn's dealings with Kislyak, newly released emails show she had detailed knowledge of those dealings, which strongly suggests she lied to Congress.

His team has issued subpoenas for documents and testimony to a handful of figures, including some people close to Manafort, and others involved in the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Russians and campaign officials.
