Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed President Donald Trump financial dealings with Deutsche Bank, likely including information on a large loan borrowed from Germany's biggest financial institution, according to reports.
Deutsche Bank is not the only Trump-related business interest that is attracting the attention of investigators.
Camera IconUS Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looking into the finances of the Trump family.
Mr Mueller is looking into claims of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election and potential collusion by Mr Trump's team - an allegation denied by the President and Russian authorities.
Trump's relationship with Deutsche Bank stretches back some two decades and the roughly $300 million he owed to the bank represented almost half of his outstanding debt, according to a July 2016 analysis by Bloomberg. And he also has deep financial entanglements with alleged Russian oligarchs and mobsters.
Mueller filed charges against Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates on October 30. Russian Federation has denied US intelligence agencies' conclusion that it meddled in the campaign and Trump has said there was no collusion with Moscow. (Trump's lawyer denies he meant the tweet this way, and Trump denies Comey's account of their conservation). Last week Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to a single count of making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. That figure includes a $170-million loan Trump took out to finish a hotel in Washington.
NASA's Voyager 1 Spacecraft Thrusters Work After Decades Of Being Dormant
IF you tried to start a auto after 40 years of it sitting in your garage, you might expect to run into a bit of trouble. Voyager was launched in 1977 and is now the only spacecraft in interstellar space, or the area beyond the solar system.
As Mueller's investigation unfolds, Trump has gone on the offensive.
During his White House campaign, Trump said he would seek to improve ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which had been frequently strained during President Barack Obama's administration.
- Flynn lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the substance of his conversations with Kislyak.
Funds were spent on personnel, travel and office space, the Justice Department said.
- Donald Trump Jr., in a statement personally dictated by President Trump, lied to the public about that notorious meeting with a group of Russians offering dirt on Hillary Clinton. And nobody has more to hide than the president himself; he didn't withhold his tax returns because he's so modest about how wealthy he is.
