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

Robert Mueller, who is heading the Russian Federation investigation, has reportedly demanded Deutsche Bank hand over details of Trump's accounts with the organization.

He confirmed the bank in question was Deutsche Bank.

The special counsel's investigation has focused on potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, as well as obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump, who might have tried to impede the investigation.

"One obvious question is why Trump and those around him expressed interest in improving relations with Russian Federation as a top foreign policy priority, and whether or not any personal considerations played any part in that", the second official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

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.

This may turn out to be no big deal - perhaps Mueller will find that all Trump's transactions with Deutsche Bank were above-board and free of any amusing business, and also that nothing he discovers there will lead to evidence of any other misconduct on Trump's part. After a string of bankruptcies and broken promises, pretty much every other major bank stopped lending Trump money some years ago.

The subpoena was earlier reported by German daily Handelsblatt.

Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election and Trump has called the special counsel's investigation a "witch hunt". That figure includes a $170-million loan Trump took out to finish a hotel in Washington.

Trump had liabilities of at least $130 million to Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, a unit of the German bank, according to a federal financial disclosure form released in June by the U.S. Office of Government Ethics.

An internal investigation carried out by Deutsche Bank didn't yield any evidence of connections between the client relationship with Trump and the bank's mirror trades affair, a person briefed on the matter said. 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.
