Mueller was appointed special counsel in May, after President Donald Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.
"Deutsche Bank's pattern of involvement in money laundering schemes with primarily Russian participation, its unconventional relationship with the president, and its repeated violations of US banking laws all raise serious question about whether the bank's reported reviews of the trading scheme and Trump's financial ties to Russia were completely thorough", they wrote.
As is to be expected when he feels fussed, the President may react badly to this news, especially after having previously warned that, "if Mueller examined his family's finances beyond any relationship with Russian Federation he'd consider it "a violation", as Bloomberg recalls. Mueller incorporated several ongoing investigations within the Justice Department including those of Trump campaign contacts with Russian Federation, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's business activities and former national security adviser Michael Flynn. The one exception was Deutsche Bank, to which Trump owed $364 million as of the end of previous year.
A USA 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 US and European Union sanctions. They said I own buildings in Russian Federation.
White House lawyers declined to comment on Mueller's expenditures.
Mueller sought records from Deutsche Bank, a source familiar with the subpoena told ABC News.
The subpoena was earlier reported by German daily Handelsblatt.

Tennessee may now look to fired Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin for their head coaching position. Doeren guided the Wolfpack to an 8-4 overall record and 6-2 mark in ACC play this season.
Trump, his wife, daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner are understood to beclients of Deutsche Bank.
What we do know is that the Russian Federation investigation has led Mueller to Trump's personal finances, which provide a target-rich environment if you suspect financial malfeasance.
"I think that's a violation", Mr. Trump told the paper.
Camera IconRobert Mueller has asked a German bank to look at account information of Donald Trump and his family.
That figure includes a $170-million loan Trump took out to finish a hotel in Washington. By sheer coincidence, Deutsche Bank recently had to pay $670 million in fines for its role in a Russian money laundering plot (though as Bloomberg reports, the bank's internal investigation found no link between Trump and that scheme).
Deutsche declined to confirm if the Manaforts were clients or if it had received a subpoena from Mueller for information on them. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty. Manafort and Gates pleaded not guilty.
