Trump lawyer denies financial record subpoena

President Donald Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow denied Tuesday reports that special counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for records related to the president's financial transactions.

Deutsche Bank received a subpoena from Mr Mueller several weeks ago, according to the Reuters news agency, citing a person close to the matter. "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources".

Deutsche Bank, which has loaned the Trump organisation millions of dollars for real estate ventures, said it would not comment on any of its clients.

In May, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to serve as special counsel for the Justice Department, and to oversee the investigation into "any links and/or coordination between Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump, and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation".

Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election and Trump has called the special counsel's investigation a "witch hunt".

In November, several Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives also introduced a resolution calling on Mueller to resign, saying he never disclosed to Congress the details of a bribery case involving the subsidiary of a Russian company that purchased U.S. uranium mines during his tenure as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Manafort was charged, along with his longtime business partner Rick Gates, for work on behalf of Ukraine unrelated to the campaign.

Mr Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russian Federation, calling the allegations a "witch hunt". Last week Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to a single count of making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

It also prompted claims among Trump opponents that the President may have obstructed justice, after a tweet at the weekend appeared to confirm he knew at the time of Mr Flynn's sacking that he had lied.

During his White House campaign, Trump said he would seek to improve ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which had been frequently strained during President Barack Obama's administration. And that's not to mention the fact that Trump said on national television that he fired Comey to shut down the investigation, and told the same thing to the Russian ambassador and foreign minister. Those trades are being investigated in multiple probes in the U.S. and Europe.
