Special counsel Robert Mueller has failed to ensnare President Trump. Cases against Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn failed to produce any evidence that the president colluded with Russia. But he isn’t giving up. Mueller is now targeting the Trump family’s financial records.

According to multiple outlets, Deutsche Bank has handed over Donald Trump’s financial records to Mueller. They also turned over records belonging to the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner. The intent of the subpoena, received several weeks ago, is to find documents proving monetary ties between the president and Russia.

The bank has been Trump’s primary lender with regards to his personal business dealings for years. Representatives from Deutsche, who has provided him with more than $300 million in loans for real-estate ventures, is refusing to comment citing privacy concerns.

However, an anonymous source at the bank did highlight the stress the subpoena is causing. The source told Reuters they hope turning over the records will prevent Democrats from inquiring about their relationship with President Trump.

Not surprisingly, House Democrats have been pushing Mueller to investigate Trump family finances. In August, they sent a letter to the House Financial Services Committee demanding they issue a subpoena. Chairman Jeb Hensarling refused Democrats’ request calling it, “blatantly bipartisan.”

This news comes less than a week after Flynn accepted a plea deal from Mueller. On Thursday, the former national security adviser pled guilty to lying to the FBI. After the story broke, ABC investigative reporter Brian Ross falsely claimed that Flynn would offer damning testimony against Trump.

President Trump previously addressed the possibility that Mueller would investigate his finances. In June, the president warned special counsel not to overstep his bounds in an interview with The New York Times.

“I think that’s a violation,” said Trump. “Look, this is about Russia. So, I think if he wants to go, my finances are extremely good, my company is an unbelievably successful company.” The president added, “But, I have no income from Russia. I don’t do business with Russia.”

    My finances are considered private and it is against the law for someone to try to see them. What about the people that were hacked into with the financial reports getting information about my accounts. It is against the law. Why don’t you leave our President alone. Get behind him and support him instead of in front of him hindering him.
