Deutsche Bank is reportedly looking at evidence that companies related to White House senior adviser Jared Kushner may have moved "suspicious" money through the German lender.

The German banking giant has informed a national finance supervisor about the transactions and will also inform special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian election meddling, Manager Magazin reported.

Deutsche Bank's board chairman Paul Achleitner's "internal detectives were embarrassed to deliver their interim report regarding real estate tycoon Kushner to the financial regulator BaFin," the story translated from German to English reported, according to Newsweek.

"Their finding: There are indications that [President] Donald Trump's son-in-law or persons or companies close to him could have channeled suspicious monies through Deutsche Bank as part of their business dealings."

"What BaFin will do about [the bank's findings] is not the bank's greatest concern," the German magazine reported, according to Newsweek. "Rather, it's the noise that U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller … will make in his pursuit of Trump. For he will likely obtain this information — a giant risk to [the bank's] reputation."

The bank hasn't commented about the content of the reported inquiries, but has said it is cooperating with authorities, the New York Daily News reported.

Kushner has already been wrapped up in problems with Deutsche Bank.

Federal prosecutors last month reportedly subpoenaed the bank for records relating to Kushner Companies, his family-run business. It was not known if the records involve Kushner or are tied to Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russians in the presidential election.

Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon also was quoted in the book "Fire and Fury" that the Russia investigation "goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner s--t."

A spokesman for Kushner Companies, from which Jared Kushner has partially disentangled himself, disputed Bannon's statements, in which he also Kushner's business "greasy," the Daily News reported.

"Steve Bannon has zero knowledge of our company, its finances or much else for that matter," the spokesman told the News. "Kushner has a great track record and completed approximately $14 billion dollars of transactions in the last decade."
