Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly subpoenaed Germany’s largest bank for information on accounts held by associates of President Trump.
Initial reports indicated Trump and his family were the target of the probe, but subsequent clarifications indicated the accounts were held by people affiliated with Trump.
Reuters reported Tuesday Deutsche Bank received the subpoena several weeks ago, which asked for information on certain money and credit transactions. The organization stood by its report that Trump's family was the target of the probe.
The bank has loaned the Trump Organization millions of dollars related to the president’s real estate business.
However, Trump's attorney — Jay Sekulow — said the reports are false.
“We have confirmed that the news reports that the Special Counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the president are false,” Sekulow told Reuters. “No subpoena has been issued or received. We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources.”
In June, Deutsche Bank asked House Democrats for more time to provide details on Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.
Five Democrats on the House Financial Services Committee sent a letter to the bank in May requesting information on Trump’s transactions at the bank.
"Congress remains in the dark on whether loans Deutsche Bank made to President Trump were guaranteed by the Russian government, or were in any way connected to Russia," the letter request for Deutsche Bank read.
Mueller is investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
Both Russia and Trump have denied any wrongdoing.
