WH Refutes Report Mueller Subpoenaed Deutsche Bank

The White House said Tuesday a news report claiming a major international bank was subpoenaed for President Donald Trump's financial records is false.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked about a report in The Wall Street Journal that special counsel Robert Mueller's team has requested Trump's records from Deutsche Bank.

"I think it's important to note, and hopefully you guys have seen this statement, that Jay Sekulow, a member of the president's legal team, has put out within the last hour that they '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,'" Sanders said.

"I think this is another example of the media going too far and too fast, and we don't see it going in that direction."

Later in the briefing, Sanders was asked if the White House expects Deutsche Bank or other financial institutions to cooperate with Mueller's team, which is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

"I'm not going to get into hypothetical situations and try to determine and project everything that could happen," Sanders replied.

"We know that it hasn't happened up until this point. And that the reports out were totally false, and again, the media got ahead of their skis a little bit on pushing and driving that story that wasn't true."

Reuters reported on the existence of Sekulow's statement, and cited a source close to Deutsche Bank as saying it ran some checks on Trump's financial ties with Russia.
