A person familiar with Mueller's investigation told the news agency Reuters on Tuesday that Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from the usa special counsel several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, confirming a report by German daily Handelsblatt published on the same day.

"No subpoena has been issued or received", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a briefing. A few weeks ago, the German bank would have received a subpoena from Mueller to obtain information about the money and transactions of the Trump family, a source told Reuters.

In June, the German bank rejected a demand by Democrats to provide details of the President's finances, citing privacy laws.

A federal judge has ordered Paul Manafort to prove that he did not violate a court order, after prosecutors revealed that he has been working on an op-ed essay with a colleague alleged to have ties to Russian intelligence. The special counsel has hired a small army of attorneys - 17 - to work the investigation.

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

Deutsche Bank, which has loaned the Trump organization hundreds of millions of dollars for real estate ventures, said it would not comment on any of its clients. The report covers from May 17, the date of Mueller's appointment, through September 30, the end of the federal fiscal year.

The special counsel's office spent $3,213,695, according to the report, and it also disclosed spending by Justice Department "components that support" the special counsel's office.

The bulk of those expenditures are on personnel, with $1.2 million spent on DOJ employees reassigned to Mueller's team and about $500,000 on others brought in on the investigation.

The special counsel's budget itself has not been made public. Despite the global focus of Mueller's probe, only about $2,800 was spent on actual travel costs.
