Mueller subpoenas Deutsche Bank over loans to Trump

Trump-Russia probe: Mueller 'demands Deutsche Bank data'

"We have confirmed that the news reports that the Special Counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the president are false", lawyer Jay Sekulow said in a statement. "No subpoena has been issued or received".

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.

In June, the German bank rejected requests for account records by Democrats in the US House of Representatives to provide details of the president's finances.

The news came days after Mueller unveiled his fourth indictment in the sprawling Russian Federation probe, which is examining possible collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and what U.S. intelligence believes was an effort by Moscow to tilt the election in his favor.

In May, five Democratic members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan asking the bank to turn in any records relating to Trump's accounts and any ties to Russian Federation.

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

On Monday, as he left the White House for a trip to Utah, Trump restated his sympathy for Flynn and his assertion that prosecutors should have pursued action against his general election rival, Hillary Clinton.

Mr Trump has repeatedly denied any financial connections with Russian Federation.

The statement also said YouTube was also reforming its advertising policies, saying it would apply stricter criteria, conduct more manual curation and expand its team of ad reviewers.

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow tried to sway the presidential election in favour of Mr Trump.

The German bank is one of the few major lenders that have lent large amounts to Mr Trump in the past decade.

When approached about the Dowd comment, the person familiar with the matter reiterated that the bank had received a subpoena.

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

Asked in July if Mueller would be crossing a "red line" should the investigation veer into examining his finances, Trump told The New York Times, "I would say yeah".

Trump got a $106 million loan from Deutsche Bank in 2011 to buy Doral, the golf resort in Miami, according to property filings with the local land register.

Mr Trump and Deutsche Bank have not always been on good terms.
