Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation taking a dramatic turn, zeroing in on President Trump’s finances.
Bloomberg, citing an unnamed source, reports the special counsel has subpoenaed Deutsche Bank to give up data on accounts held by Trump and his family.
Trump’s finances, one of his most closely guarded subjects.
Back in June, Deutsche reportedly rejected a demand by House Democrats to provide details on his finances, citing privacy laws.
This time, according to Bloomberg, Germany’s largest bank was asked by Mueller’s team weeks ago to provide information on particular money and credit transactions.
As Trump’s primary lender, he reportedly owes the bank $300 million.
Democrats are confident Trump’s relationship with the bank is crucial in the Russia investigation.
Russia has denied any involvement in trying to sway the presidential election.
Meanwhile Trump has criticized the FBI’s reputation seizing on the news an FBI agent was removed from Mueller’s team, with Trump’s lawyer claiming as president he cannot be guilty of obstruction of justice because “he is the chief law enforcement officer” under the constitution.
