Mueller details $6.7M spent in early months of Russian Federation probe

06 December 2017

On Tuesday, a German newspaper reported that Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating the Trump-Russia scandal, has issued a subpoena to Deutsche Bank, which Trump owes hundreds of millions of dollars, making this financial behemoth Trump's largest creditor.

The Reuters news agency had reported that Deutsche Bank received a subpoena from Mr Mueller several weeks ago, citing a person close to the matter.

He confirmed the bank in question was Deutsche Bank.

The bank told Bloomberg, in a statement, that it had always cooperated with investigating authorities.

Word of the subpoena comes just days after former White House national security advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators about his contacts with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. But Trump's attorneys have said they believe the Trumps' business and financial arrangements are out of bounds for Mueller's investigation, and Trump has denied all along that he has any financial connections with Russians.

Trump has ceaselessly thrown flak at the Mueller investigation and has denied the existence of any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation. "So we're very happy".

More recently, though, he has highlighted news reports that Peter Strzok, the former top FBI official assigned to the investigation, was reassigned after it was discovered he and another team member had exchanged texts disparaging Trump and supporting Clinton. Over the years, the bank's cumulative loans to Trump added up to billions, and loans originally worth $300 million remain outstanding. It is not clear whether Mueller is interested in the bank accounts because they are connected to the Russian Federation probe or if he is investigating another matter.

"I think that's a violation", Mr. Trump told the paper.

And while the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd is good to go with the expenses, with no inkling of collusion, reasonable-minded folks on social media had a different take.

"I don't make money from Russian Federation", he told The New York Times.

"The Washington Post and The New York Times reported Saturday that a lead FBI investigator on the Mueller probe, Peter Strzok, was demoted this summer after it was discovered he'd sent anti-Trump texts to a mistress", the Journal said.

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.

Mueller has already charged two people in the Russian Federation matter with money laundering: former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business associate, Rick Gates.

Papadopoulos pleaded guilty. Manafort and Gates pleaded not guilty.

Trump told the New York Times this past summer he would consider it a "violation" if Mueller were to expand the probe beyond Russian Federation. The charges were brought as part of Mueller's investigation.
