President Donald Trump said he is part of the largest “witch hunt” in U.S. political history in a tweet Monday morning.
And he was right again because special counsel Robert Mueller has issued a subpoena to Germany’s largest bank in a possible sign the investigation into Russian election interference may be expanding toward President Trump’s finances.
Deutsche Bank has so far not accommodated or discussed American requests for information about the Trumps’ accounts.
The German business newspaper Handelsblatt, which first reported the subpoena, quoted a spokesman saying that the bank cooperates with official investigators but would not discuss individual cases.
If Mueller’s team is expanding its inquiry into the Trump family’s banking and financial arrangements, that could put it onto a collision course with the president.
A U.S. official with knowledge of Mueller’s probe said one reason for the subpoenas was to find out whether Deutsche Bank may have sold some of 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.
President Trump’s legal team confirms it is aware of media reports related to the subpoena, but there was no immediate comment from the White House or the president’s attorneys.
Do you think that this is just a huge witch-hunt against President Trump?
