Mueller's Russian Federation probe has cost millions - DOJ

Mueller's Russian Federation probe has cost millions - DOJ

A person familiar with Mueller's investigation told the news agency Reuters on Tuesday that Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from the U.S. special counsel several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, confirming a report by German daily Handelsblatt published on the same day.

United States investigators are said to be demanding information on dealings linked to Mr Trump as part of an investigation into alleged Russian influence in the United States presidential election, according to Handelsblatt and Reuters.

If Mueller's team is expanding its inquiry into the Trump family's banking and financial arrangements, that could put it onto a collision course with the president.

Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, the person said, without giving details, adding key documents had been handed over in the meantime.

In an interview this past July Trump told The New York Times that Mueller would cross a red line if he examined his or his family's finances. They said I own buildings in Russian Federation. The one exception was Deutsche Bank, to which Trump owed $364 million as of the end of previous year. "I would say yes".

Trump staged the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in 2013, and his longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, has acknowledged that he reached out to the Russian government to ask for help with a prospective Trump Tower project there.

Deutsche Bank, which has loaned the Trump organisation millions of dollars for real estate ventures, said it would not comment on any of its clients.

CNN Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju tweeted that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee actually blocked the Trump finances subpoena, refusing to order Deutsche Bank to hand over the Trump Organization's financial records.

Deutsche Bank is not the only Trump-related business interest that is attracting the attention of investigators.

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. And he also has deep financial entanglements with alleged Russian oligarchs and mobsters.

While Trump campaigned during the 2016 election, the bank rejected calls to be transparent about exactly how much money Trump owes and why.
