Mueller's Trump Finances Subpoena Was Never Sent, Here's Why

The Trump Russia probe

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was said to have subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for the release of Trump's medical records.

"We have confirmed that the news reports that the Special Counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the president are false", Sekulow told Reuters in a statement.

In June, Deutsche Bank already rejected demands by US House Democrats to provide details of Trump's finances, saying sharing client data would be illegal unless it received a formal request to do so.

Manafort is facing felony charges involving allegations of money laundering and other financial crimes related to work in Ukraine.

In May, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to serve as special counsel for the Justice Department, and to oversee the investigation into "any links and/or coordination between Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump, and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation".




It was reported earlier that as part of his probe into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, Mr Mueller asked Deutsche Bank to share data on accounts held by Mr Trump and his family.

In addition, the department said that its various offices have also spent another $3.5 million to help assist the probe, though those expenditures would have occurred "irrespective of the existence of the" special counsel's office.

It's hard to make comparisons to other investigations led by specially designated prosecutors or to draw conclusions about how much Mueller will ultimately spend. The rest was spent on the relocation of Justice Department employees temporarily assigned to the expanding investigation, the report shows.

The Mueller probe also spent $157,339 for a variety of contractual services - $111,245 for information technology, $24,456 for transcription and $17,217 for building services.

For example, Patrick Fitzgerald was a special counsel who investigated a far narrower subject: a leak that exposed the identity of covert Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame.
