Deutsche Bank subpoenaed to provide Trump accounts' data

A US federal investigator probing alleged Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election asked Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) for data on accounts held by President Donald Trump and his family, a person close to the matter said on Tuesday.
The Guardian, citing German newspaper Handelsblatt, reported that the bank has since cooperated with the request and handed over banking records to investigators.
In May, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to serve as special counsel for the Justice Department, and to oversee the investigation into "any links and/or coordination between Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump, and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation". "No subpoena has been issued or received".

Mr Mueller issued a subpoena to the bank several weeks ago demanding data on transactions linked to the USA president, Reuters news agency and a German newspaper say.
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. 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.
Holding such debt, particularly if some of it was or is coming due, could potentially give Russian banks some leverage over Trump, especially if they are state-owned, said a second US official familiar with Russian intelligence methods.
At this point, we don't know exactly what Mueller is looking for in the Deutsche Bank records. I don't. They said I made money from Russian Federation.
Deutsche Bank has loaned the Trump organization an estimated $300 million for its real estate dealings prior to Donald Trump becoming president. "Over the years, I've looked at maybe doing a deal in Russian Federation, but I never did one".
The Trump family's dealings with Deutsche Bank have been a focus of opponents for months. And he also has deep financial entanglements with alleged Russian oligarchs and mobsters.
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.

The precise content of Strzok's text messages is unknown, and it remains unclear whether Horowitz will make them public. Horowitz, who is leading a broad examination of how the F.B.I. handled the Clinton email investigation.
