A U.S. federal investigator probing alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election asked Deutsche Bank for data on accounts held by President Donald Trump and his family, a person close to the matter said Tuesday.A U.S. official with knowledge of Mueller's probe said one reason for the subpoenas was to find out whether Deutsche Bank may have sold some of Trump's mortgage or other loans to Russian state development bank VEB or other Russian banks that now are under U.S. and European Union sanctions.A source close to Deutsche Bank said the bank had run checks on Trump's financial dealings with Russia.There was no immediate response to the Deutsche Bank subpoena from Trump's lawyers.Trump had liabilities of at least $130 million to Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, a unit of the German bank, according to a federal financial disclosure form released in June by the U.S. Office of Government Ethics.Trump and Deutsche Bank have not always been on good terms.Deutsche declined to confirm if the Manaforts were clients or if it had received a subpoena from Mueller for information on them.
