Special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia team has contacted Deutsche Bank about getting ahold of banking records that could be related to former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that the German financial institution was directed to hand over records that are suspected to have ties to the retired Army lieutenant general. The report comes less than two weeks after multiple media outlets claimed Mueller's team asked Deutsche Bank about banking records related to President Donald Trump, a report that was refuted by Trump's legal team.

If Friday's report is true, it shows that Mueller's Russia investigation is trying to see if a money trail exists that would show ties to Russia and either Trump, his campaign, or Trump's associates.

Flynn pleaded guilty earlier this month to lying to the FBI. He worked on Trump's transition team and was his national security adviser in the White House for 24 days before he resigned after it was reported that he lied about contacts with the Russians.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Manafort's business associate Rick Gates, and Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos have also been indicted by Mueller's team.
