The US administration has submitted a request to Deutsche Bank to hand over information about transactions that could be linked to former national security adviser Michael Flynn or entities connected to him, The Wall Street Journal reported.
According to the source, the information has been requested within the investigation conducted by US Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections.
As reported earlier, Flynn pleaded guilty to lying about Russian interference in elections and expressed willingness to cooperate with the investigation.
In December, various media outlets reported that Deutsche Bank’s representatives have been called in to testify. The White House denied the information the US representatives of Deutsche Bank had received notice from Mueller to appear in court because of the alleged link between Trump and money laundering activities from Russia through the German financial institution.
