The White House is disputing reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed some of Trump's financial records.
"We confirmed that the news reports [that] the special counsel had subpoenaed financial records related to the president are completely false," said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a briefing. "No subpoena has been issued or received," she added. "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources."
It was reported that as part of his probe into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, Mueller asked Deutsche Bank to share data and documents on accounts related to Trump and his dealings, reports The Independent.
Since 1998, Deutsche Bank has led or participated in loans of at least $2.5bn that the real estate tycoon used to finance some of his most high-profile projects, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The subpoena was earlier reported by German newspaper Handelsblatt and other outlets, such as Reuters and the Journal - both of which cited unnamed sources.
