Robert Mueller 'demands Donald Trump's Deutsche Bank accounts'

"Deutsche Bank's pattern of involvement in money laundering schemes with primarily Russian participation, its unconventional relationship with the president, and its repeated violations of US banking laws all raise serious question about whether the bank's reported reviews of the trading scheme and Trump's financial ties to Russia were completely thorough", they wrote.

Bankruptcies at his hotel and casino business in the 1990s made much of Wall Street shy away from lending Mr Trump credit, forcing him to look further afield.

Holding such debt, particularly if some of it was or is coming due, could potentially give Russian banks some leverage over Trump, especially if they are state-owned, said a second US official familiar with Russian intelligence methods.

Interested in Russia Investigation? That has indeed been a consistent line from Trump himself, the White House and the president's defenders: nobody did anything wrong, all the contacts with Russians were just routine, and there's nothing to hide.

Future of Irish border remains an obstacle in Brexit talks
The British government says that when it leaves the EU in March 2019, it will also leave the single market and the customs union. He added: "The indications we have is that we are in a much better place now than we have been in the negotiations to date".

Asked if delving into his and his family's finances unrelated to the Russian Federation probe would cross a red line, Trump replied, "I would say yeah".

There was no immediate response to the Deutsche Bank subpoena from Trump's lawyers.

Mueller's probe also caused other Justice Department components to spend about $3.5 million on work attributable to the special counsel probe, according to the report. "I would say yes". And that's not to mention the fact that Trump said on national television that he fired Comey to shut down the investigation, and told the same thing to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister. "Look, this is about Russian Federation".

All of those loans were taken out in 2012 and will mature in 2023 and 2024, according to the disclosure. "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources". By sheer coincidence, Deutsche Bank recently had to pay $670 million in fines for its role in a Russian money laundering plot (though as Bloomberg reports, the bank's internal investigation found no link between Trump and that scheme). 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. The charges were brought as part of Mueller's investigation.
