    Special prosecutor Robert Mueller zeroed in on President Donald Trump’s business dealings with Deutsche Bank AG as his investigation into alleged Russian meddling in U.S. elections widens.


    Mueller issued a subpoena to Germany’s largest lender several weeks ago, forcing the bank to submit documents on its relationship with Trump and his family, according to a person briefed on the matter, who asked not to be identified because the action has not been announced.

    “Deutsche Bank always cooperates with investigating authorities in all countries,” the lender said in a statement to Bloomberg Tuesday, declining to provide additional information.

    A source with knowledge of the investigation tells @FoxNews that there has been no subpoena from Robert Mueller's office sent to Deutsche Bank asking for information on @realDonaldTrump finances

    "We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday. The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process," ABC said in a statement. "As a result of our continued reporting over the next several hours ultimately we determined the information was wrong and we corrected the mistake on air and online."

    "It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience -- these are our core principles," the statement added. "We fell far short of that yesterday."

    Citing a single anonymous source, Ross told viewers during an ABC special report on Friday morning that Flynn was prepared to testify that Donald Trump, as a candidate for president, told him to contact Russians.

    An ABC News tweet about the report was retweeted about 25,000 times before being deleted.

    ------------------------------------------------

    A little too much coincidence I think for this many corrections having to be made on these Mueller investigation fake stories lately. Pretty sure they are flushing out some leakers. It would be ironic if it was Mueller behind this but I doubt he is.

    Even with a crooked DC lefty Judge the bar would still be very high to get a subpoena on Trump's private bank records. We fall into the trap of thinking Mueller can just get this stuff very easily because he is a special counsel but that isn’t correct.

    This story appears to be planted along with the one that they were going to give congress Trump's bank records after they requested them.

    The problem is there is not a single Democrat in Washington that could properly be characterized as a gentleman or gentlewoman.

    To answer the question pose
    s at the head of the thread. there appears to be a media quota of 95% negative stories about Trump so, as long as that is the case, there needs to be a certain amount of Mueller fake news stories to help meet that quota.

    I am starting to believe sundance may be right and some of this stuff is strategic leaks (the leaks about that FBI guy anyway hating Trump) to get out in front of the IG report coming soon. They are hanging him out like he controlled everything that was crooked himself which can't be reality to try and protect Comey, McCabe and Yates.

    I'd like to see Comey taken down a large notch, he was pretty snarky and smug in his testimony before Congress. He set this all up and the right took bait.

    At the 4 minute mark

    The FBI director refuses to answer if Obama or Dennis Rodman are under investigation for violation of the Logan Act.

    I'm getting frustrated at congressional committees. Can't those limp d!cks hold someone in contempt when they don't answer questions. All they're doing is pounding their chests.

    It is a joke. Didn't Eric Holder get held in contempt a few times but nothing ever happened to him?

    If it's legal, I'd handcuff the SOB's and let sit in a cell until they talked.

    That never seems to happen with executive branch people for ignoring Congress. Not sure if its an accepted thing that a LE agency would have to request an arrest warrant from a Judge in modern times or how that would have to work.
    -----------------------------------------------

    This was that IRS lady they held in contempt

    Edit: Procedurally, the House vote allows a referral of criminal contempt charges to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. And that's what happened.

    While many folks hoped that the result would be the filing of criminal charges, history wasn't on their side: the U.S. Attorney’s Office hasn’t pursued criminal contempt charges since 1983 when the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Anne Gorsuch Buford, refused to turn over documents which had been requested by Congress.

    As I understand it the justice department must enforce any contempt issues. Perhaps now they might.

    Congress did hold Holder in contempt. He’s the only Cabinet level official that has ever been held in contempt by congress.

    This is a badge of honor for Holder along with his pride in being in charge of the pardon marketing program at the end of the Clinton administration. In fact, I think it was his total commitment to corruption and his admitting to be the responsible party in the sale of pardons that appealed to Obama's criminal side.

    It appears it goes to the US Attys office now in DC if the full House votes to do it but Obama has stacked that place with a bunch of partisan hacks. They would probably have no problem requesting warrants on Trump's nominees I guess.
