The Department of Justice is investigating Deutsche Bank's possible role in a $10 billion Russian money laundering scheme (and the bank has already paid out over $670 million in civil penalties to United States and United Kingdom regulators this year relating to Russian trades), and it looks like Mueller is digging into any potential connections between that investigation and his inquiry into the Trump camp.
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. It's unknown if the subpoena is related to Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, or rather part of a separate investigation.
Trump's lawyer denied a subpoena had been issued.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, insisted the Bloomberg report was wrong at her Tuesday press briefing.
A USA official with knowledge of Mr Mueller's probe said one reason for the subpoenas was to find out whether Deutsche Bank may have sold some of Mr Trump's mortgage or other loans to Russian state development bank VEB or other Russian banks that now are under U.S. and European Union sanctions.
After the original loan, the same division of the bank continued to lend to Trump: "He took out two mortgages against Trump National Doral resort in Miami".Читайте также: During Trump inaugural, Flynn greenlighted nuclear project with Russian Federation
Earlier this year, Mr Trump said pursuing his personal finances would be a breach of Mr Mueller's role as special counsel.
Deutsche Bank has been served. Representative Maxine Waters of California and other Democrats have asked whether the bank's loans to Trump, made years before he ran for president, were in any way connected to Russian Federation. The lion's share, a $170-million loan, relates to the luxury hotel the Trump Organization opened in Washington, D.C. inside the refurbished Old Post Office building.
Deutsche Bank is not the only Trump-related business interest that is attracting the attention of investigators.
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.
AFP reported late Tuesday that the subpoena sought information about Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign official who was indicted in October. Trump sued the bank and other lenders in 2008, demanding $3 billion in damages, claiming they broke agreements in the construction and financing of a Chicago hotel.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
