Conflicting Reports Emerge About Subpoena for Deutsche Bank in Trump-Russia Investigation

Deutsche Bank subpoenaed to provide Trump accounts' data

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has released a statement of the costs of investigating Russian meddling for the period from May 17 until the end of September, part of a commitment to release reports of his outlays every six months.

The Guardian, citing German newspaper Handelsblatt, reported that the bank has since cooperated with the request and handed over banking records to investigators. An additional $3.5 million was paid out by the Justice Department to support the investigation, though the special counsel's office says that money would have been spent on ongoing probes anyway, even if Mueller had not been appointed.

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 United States intelligence believes was an effort by Moscow to tilt the election in his favor.

"The latest news supports our view that Mr. Mueller is too conflicted to investigate the FBI and should step down in favor of someone more credible", the newspaper said. "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources".

Deutsche Bank had been one of Trump's most reliable lenders. That figure includes a $170-million loan Trump took out to finish a hotel in Washington.

In June, Deutsche Bank already rejected demands by US House Democrats to provide details of Trump's finances, saying sharing client data would be illegal unless it received a formal request to do so. Mueller incorporated several ongoing investigations within the Justice Department including those of Trump campaign contacts with Russian Federation, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's business activities and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

These reported conversations lead to questions about whether the president was trying to derail the FBI probe and end the investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 election. Mueller's investigation had expanded to examine a broad range of transactions involving the president's businesses, including dealings by his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, a person familiar with the probe told Bloomberg News after the publication of the Times interview.

"The White House's chief lawyer told President Donald Trump in January he believed then-national security adviser Michael Flynn had misled the Federal Bureau of Investigation and lied to Vice President Mike Pence and should be fired, a source familiar with the matter said", CNN reported.
