Donald Trump's personal banking information handed over to Robert Mueller

The Trump Russia probe The Trump Russia probe

Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for Trump, denied the report, telling Reuters: "No subpoena has been issued or received". United States investigators are demanding that it provide information on dealings linked to the Trumps, sources familiar with the matter told Handelsblatt.

In July, Trump said in an interview with the New York Times that if Mueller examined his family's finances beyond any relationship with Russian Federation he'd consider it "a violation".

A source close to Deutsche Bank said the bank had run checks on Trump's financial dealings with Russian Federation. Bloomberg reports that the main lender for the Trump family's financial empire has begun cooperating with Robert Mueller's investigation after the special counsel got a subpoena for their records. They certainly have the power to do so, should Mueller deem it necessary: The order establishing the investigation authorizes him to pursue "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump", as well as "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation". The bank has worked with Trump since the 1990s, long before the tycoon chose to enter politics as a candidate. That represents new money coming from an indefinite appropriation for independent counsels, which the Justice Department determined could be used to fund Mueller's work. A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment.

Despite previous denials due to privacy issues, Deutsche Bank - which has made loans to the Trump Organization for millions of dollars - finally delivered the required information to the investigation, something that implies that the special lawyer has come to the heart of the matter.

"Deutsche Bank always cooperates with investigating authorities in all countries", the lender said in a statement to Bloomberg on Tuesday, declining to provide additional information. I don't have buildings in Russian Federation.

"The investigation would surely continue, though perhaps with someone who doesn't think his job includes protecting the FBI and Mr. (James) Comey from answering questions about their role in the 2016 election".

Virat Kohli, Anushka to get married next week in Italy?
According to reports on Republic TV, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are getting married in Italy in the 2nd week of December. Just last week, the couple set the dance floor on fire at Zaheer Khan's wedding to Bollywood actress Sagarika Ghatge.

He later said the bank in question was Deutsche Bank. "I would say yes".

"We have confirmed that the news reports that the Special Counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the president are false".

Deutsche Bank countersued and the two sides eventually settled.

News of the Deutsche Bank subpoena may escalate Trump's vitriol toward investigators, which over the past week has included publicly attacking the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, whose reputation he declared to be " in tatters".

So far, Mueller's team has charged four people as part of the ongoing investigation.

In addition, Manafort and his longtime business associate, Rick Gates, are now facing several felony charges brought by the special counsel's office.
