Special Counsel Robert Mueller is following the money. The investigation has now moved closer to President Trump and his family by requesting information about their finances from a German bank, according to reports.
Deutsche Bank, the largest German lender and the force behind multiple Trump projects, received a subpoena several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, Reuters reported Tuesday.
The bank, which Trump reportedly owed $300 million for his real estate business dealings, had previously rejected calls from U.S. Congress to provide details of Trump’s finances, citing privacy laws.
Mueller is investigating alleged Russian attempts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election and potential collusion by Trump aides.
Russia has denied meddling in the election and Trump has said there was no collusion.
