Robert Mueller subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for information on several associates of President Trump as part of his fruitless investigation into alleged Russian collusion, Fox Business reported.
Mueller subpoenaed Germany’s largest bank several weeks ago, seeking bank and credit data on associates of Trump, who borrowed $300 million for real estate dealings before he became president.
Deutsche Bank’s business relationship with Trump goes back 20 years. In June 2017, the bank rejected demands by the House of Representatives to disclose details of Trump’s finances, citing privacy laws.
Trump attorney Jay Sekulow denied false media reports claiming Mueller had subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for President Trump’s records.
Via @JaySekulow lawyer for @realDonaldTrump “We have confirmed that the news reports that the Special Counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the President are false. No subpoena has been issued or received. We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources.”

Trump has repeatedly denied his campaign colluded with the Russian government. And the Mueller investigation has produced no evidence of collusion despite a year-long probe.
The Special Counsel’s credibility has crumbled as massive conflicts of interest become public. Mueller’s team of attorneys is stacked with anti-Trump Democratic donors. And his longtime friendship with fired FBI director James Comey has called his impartiality into question.
Over the weekend, news surfaced that Mueller had fired FBI agent Peter Strzok from his team because of anti-Trump, pro-Hillary texts Strzok exchanged with another Mueller teammate: FBI attorney Jill Page, with whom he was having an affair.
Strzok was fired in August, but the revelation of his anti-Trump, pro-Hillary text messages didn’t become public until four months later — on December 2.
Shockingly, Strzok was also in charge of supervising the Trump-Russia investigation and overseeing the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Multiple media outlets also confirmed that Strzok softened the language on Comey’s early draft about Clinton’s email server from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”
The dizzying web of deceit has led many to remark that Mueller’s investigation has lost all credibility and should be shut down before it wastes more taxpayer money.
Even liberals like Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz — who voted for Hillary — say Mueller has nothing on Trump. Dershowitz said the indictment of Michael Flynn for “lying to the FBI” is a gigantic nothing-burger. If anything, it further undermines Mueller’s investigation.
“The last thing any prosecutor wants to do is to have to indict a primary witness for lying,” Dershowitz told the Fox News. “If you indict your witness for lying, it means he’s not useful as a witness. He has no credibility.”
Dershowitz added: “This is not a show of strength by the prosecutor, but a show of weakness. They have nothing on anybody above Flynn.”
