U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has asked Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) for data on accounts held by President Donald Trump and his family, a person close to the matter said on Tuesday. United States investigators are demanding that it provide information on dealings linked to the Trumps, sources familiar with the matter told Handelsblatt.

Sekulow was responding to a report from German business newspaper Handelsblatt that Mueller had subpoenaed records from Deutsche Bank as part of his investigation into possible Russian involvement in the US presidential election campaign.

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

Then not long after that, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow confirmed to Reuters that there was no Trump finances subpoena sent to Deutsche Bank.
