Mueller issues subpoena to Deutsche Bank in Russian Federation probe

Mueller issues subpoena to Deutsche Bank in Russian Federation probe

In addition, the Justice Department has spent $3.5 million to support the investigation, though the special counsel's office says that money would have been spent anyway if Mueller had not been appointed.

Since then, special counsels have been governed by a Justice Department regulation.

United States investigators are said to be demanding information on dealings linked to Mr Trump as part of an investigation into alleged Russian influence in the United States presidential election, according to Handelsblatt and Reuters.

Funds were spent on personnel, travel and office space, the Justice Department said. It is not clear whether the investigation has Trump's tax returns, but Mueller is authorized to access such documents. Last week Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to a single count of making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

- There's the question of whether Trump or anyone else committed any financial crimes; former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has already been indicted on that score, and there could be more to come. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russia's ambassador during the transition period, and, in a potentially ominous sign for the White House, agreed to cooperate with Mueller.

Apple Rolls Out iOS 11.1.1 Update which Removes Two Annoying Bugs
Apple issued a how-to guide for users facing the glitch on its support page and pushed an 11.2 iOS update at around 4.30pm. Adds support for faster wireless charging on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X with compatible third-party accessories.

That last one was just one piece of a broad campaign Trump undertook to hinder the Russian Federation investigation in general and the investigation of Flynn in particular, which reportedly included asking top officials in the intelligence community to pressure the FBI to shut it down and pressing Republican senators to end their own investigation.

Trump has in the past taken aim at Mueller's hires, highlighting some team members' political contributions to Democrats, including Hillary Clinton. Deutsche Bank spokesman Chalie Olivier told Newsweek the bank declined to comment on the matter. Trump wrote on Twitter. That has indeed been a consistent line from Trump himself, the White House and the president's defenders: nobody did anything wrong, all the contacts with Russians were just routine, and there's nothing to hide.

Lawrence Walsh, the prosecutor who investigated Reagan officials in the Iran-contra affair, spent $47.4 million during his eight-year investigation.

An investigation into President Bill Clinton by independent counsel Kenneth Starr cost about $40 million from January 24, 1994 to September 30, 1998, according to the GAO.
