Mueller's Trump-Russia investigation engulfs Deutsche

Mueller's Trump-Russia investigation engulfs Deutsche

Bloomberg News corrected Wednesday its bombshell report that special counsel Robert Mueller had subpoenaed Deutsche Bank records pertaining to President Donald Trump and his family.

It was reported earlier that as part of his probe into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, Mr Mueller asked Deutsche Bank to share data on accounts held by Mr Trump and his family.

Mueller's investigation - which is looking into alleged Russian interference into last year's US election and whether Trump's winning campaign assisted in those efforts - appears to be entering a new phase. Last week Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to a single count of making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, insisted the Bloomberg report was wrong at her Tuesday press briefing.

Deutsche Bank has always been reported to have loaned the Trump Organization money.

Deutsche Bank provided millions of dollars to the Trump Organisation's businesses in the early 2000s when it was spurned by United States lenders.

After the original loan, the same division of the bank continued to lend to Trump: "He took out two mortgages against Trump National Doral resort in Miami".

The Hindus, however, claim that a Ram temple that originally stood there was demolished to construct the mosque. Modi said while addressing a rally in Gujarat's Dhandhuka.

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 that key documents had been handed over in the meantime. Trump told the New York Times in July that the special counsel looking into his and his family's finances would cross a red line, so we have officially entered uncharted territory in this investigation.

Instead of targeting Trump or his family's records, the subpoenas were aimed at records that pertain to people or organizations affiliated with the president, according to the corrected stories.

Deutsche Bank has been served. That figure includes a $170-million loan Trump took out to finish a hotel in Washington. Representative Maxine Waters of California and other Democrats have asked whether the bank's loans to Trump, made years before he ran for president, were in any way connected to Russian Federation. And the other line is Deutsche New York's extraordinary lending to Trump. I think that's a violation.

Mr Trump sued the bank and other lenders in 2008, demanding $US3 billion ($3.9 billion) in damages, claiming they broke agreements in the construction and financing of a Chicago hotel.

Deutsche Bank countersued and the two sides eventually settled.

Mr. Mueller's investigation has led to charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his longtime business partner Rick Gates for work unrelated to the campaign.
