Deutsche Bank subpoenaed to provide Trump accounts' data

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 us election and whether President Donald Trump or anyone close to him colluded in it.

What we do know is that the Russian Federation investigation has led Mueller to Trump's personal finances, which provide a target-rich environment if you suspect financial malfeasance.

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.

He says he's confirmed "this with the bank and other sources".

Reports of the subpoena come after Mr Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, last week admitted he had lied to the FBI over his contact with Russia's ambassador and agreed to cooperate with Mr Mueller's investigation.

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

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

"Look, this is about Russian Federation".

There was no immediate response to the Deutsche Bank subpoena from Trump's lawyers. The one exception was Deutsche Bank, to which Trump owed $364 million as of the end of previous year.

In June Deutsche Bank cited privacy laws when it rejected a request by House Democrats to provide details of Trump's finances.

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. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty. Manafort and Gates pleaded not guilty. Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty Friday to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, becoming the fourth associate of the president ensnared by Mueller's probe.

For example, Patrick Fitzgerald was a special counsel who investigated a far narrower subject: a leak that exposed the identity of covert Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame.
