Deutsche Bank gets subpoena from Mueller on Trump accounts

Michael Flynn former national security adviser to President Donald Trump leaves federal court Dec. 1 in Washington D.C. Trump’s former top advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to lying over his contacts with Russia in a dramatic escalation

The Guardian reported in July that executives at the bank were anticipating they would receive a formal demand for banking records about the president and had already established informal contacts with Mueller's investigators.

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

"Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from 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".

The heat on the investigation of President Trump's finances has just been cranked up even further.

President Trump's legal team confirms it is aware of media reports related to the subpoena, but there was no immediate comment from the White House or the president's attorneys.

Vishal Sikka departure was related to a tussle between the early board member of Infosys founder Mr. He has been working as the Interim CEO and MD of Infosys since Sikka's resignation.

Asked if delving into his and his family's finances unrelated to the Russian Federation probe would cross a red line, Trump replied, "I would say yeah". More recently, though, he has highlighted news reports that Peter Strzok, the former top FBI official assigned to the investigation, was reassigned after it was discovered he and another team member had exchanged texts disparaging Trump and supporting Clinton. They said I own buildings in Russian Federation.

Mueller sought records from Deutsche Bank, a source familiar with the subpoena told ABC News. The Mueller investigation now wants the bank to detail any ties between those trades or other Russian financing as it seeks to identify anyone connected to Donald Trump, his family or advisers.

The Deutsche debts include a loan exceeding $50 million for the Old Post Office, a historic property he redeveloped in downtown Washington, mortgages worth more than $55 million on a golf course in Florida, and a $25 million-plus loan on a Trump hotel and condominium in Chicago, the disclosure shows. Law professor Ryan Goodman suggests that Mueller could be trying to determine if Trump's loans from the bank were guaranteed by Russian interests, which could mean he was indebted to them in ways that could compromise him.

Mueller has already charged two people in the Russian Federation matter with money laundering: former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business associate, Rick Gates.
