A source close to the matter said to AFP that Germany's biggest bank had received a subpoena for documents related to its business dealings with the United States president, after Bloomberg News and the German business daily Handelsblatt first reported a summons by special counsel Robert Mueller. "No subpoena has been issued or received".

A spokeswoman for the German bank declined to comment on the reports when contacted by AFP, saying only that "Deutsche Bank takes its legal obligations seriously and remains committed to cooperating with authorized investigations into this matter". "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources".

The special counsel is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians connected with the Kremlin in the lead-up to the 2016 election.

In May, five Democratic members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan asking the bank to turn in any records relating to Trump's accounts and any ties to Russian Federation.

Deutsche Bank told Bloomberg it "always cooperates with investigating authorities in all countries".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated Sekulow's denial of the reporting during a press briefing Tuesday afternoon.

"No-one from the VTB Group representatives has received a subpoena because there are absolutely no grounds for it", a bank representative said in response to a request from Reuters.

Trump has also said that it would be a "violation" if Mueller went into his family's finances instead of focusing directly on the mechanisms of influencing the election, part of suggestions that he could fire the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Trump's relationship with Deutsche Bank stretches back some two decades and the roughly $300 million he owed to the bank represented almost half of his outstanding debt, according to a July 2016 analysis by Bloomberg.

Separately, Deutsche Bank has lent Trump up to $170 million for the Old Post Office, a historic Washington property where he has opened a hotel.

However, documents uncovered in the probe do touch on the President's business, including a former associated Felix Sater telling Trump Organization lawyer Michael Cohen that in pursuing a real estate deal in Moscow he "will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected".

Meanwhile, White House attorneys denied the Bloomberg report as well.
