Mueller's Team Spent $3.2M On Russia Probe From May Through September

Alan Dershowitz: No 'Obstruction of Justice' if Trump Just Using His Authority

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his investigators subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for documents related to business with President Trump and members of his family.

Deutsche Bank for months has rebuffed calls by Democratic lawmakers to provide more transparency over the roughly $300 million Trump owed to the bank for his real estate dealings prior to becoming president.

Sekulow told CBS News' Major Garrett that Trump's legal team confirmed with sources at Deutsche Bank that the reports indicating Mueller's team requested Trump's bank records were false.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller departs after briefing the U.S. House Intelligence Committee on his investigation of potential collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., June 20, 2017.

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


The president declined to say what he would do if Mueller began such an examination, but he continued, "I think that's a violation".

As Mueller's investigation unfolds, Trump has gone on the offensive. "Look, this is about Russian Federation".

Deutsche Bank management is ready to share information about the lender's dealings with Trump and is hopeful that doing so will help end the series of inquiries from Democrats, an executive at the bank, who asked not to be identified discussing private deliberations, has previously told Bloomberg News.

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. In a recent tweet, Trump admitted that he knew then-national security adviser Michael Flynn lied to the FBI about his conversations with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak when he fired him, which means Trump knew Flynn had committed a crime when he asked then-FBI Director James Comey to lay off investigating Flynn.

The special counsel has over a dozen lawyers working for his office. In October, the first indictments in his probe were unsealed in court against Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and an aide, Rick Gates.
