Bloomberg Walks Back Bombshell Report Claiming Mueller Subpoenaed Trump’s Deutsche Bank Records
MORE FAKE NEWS.
Media was set ablaze Tuesday morning after Bloomberg reported Dirty Cop Robert Mueller subpoenaed President Donald Trump’s Deutsche Bank records.
Bloomberg is now walking back its original bombshell report that Mueller “zeroed in” on Trump’s finances, now claiming the bank records actually “pertain to people affiliated with Trump”.
This is how fake news works. The lies makes its way around the globe several times before a correction is issued a full day later! Why did it take so long to correct such a gigantic mistake?
Bloomberg’s original report:
Special prosecutor Robert Mueller zeroed in on President Donald Trump’s business dealings with Deutsche Bank AG as his investigation into alleged Russian meddling in U.S. elections widens.Mueller issued a subpoena to Germany’s largest lender several weeks ago, forcing the bank to submit documents on its relationship with Trump and his family, according to a person briefed on the matter, who asked not to be identified because the action has not been announced.
Bloomberg’s report after getting ripped by Trump’s lawyers and conservative media for lying:
Deutsche Bank AG provided records to special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation after receiving a subpoena several weeks ago, according to a person briefed on the matter.Those records pertain to people affiliated with President Donald Trump, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the action hasn’t been announced. Several news outlets — including Bloomberg — reported yesterday that the subpoena targeted Trump and his family’s bank records, which was disputed by Trump’s personal lawyer and the White House.
The Gateway Pundit reported Tuesday that the Bloomberg bombshell story was falling apart after Chief White House Correspondent for Fox News, John Roberts tweeted, “A source with knowledge of the investigation tells
@FoxNews that there has been no subpoena from Robert Mueller’s office sent to Deutsche Bank asking for information on @realDonaldTrump finances”
Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s lawyers also disputed Bloomberg’s bombshell Tuesday.
“We have confirmed that the news reports that the special counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the president are false,” said Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump’s legal team. “No subpoena has been issued or received. We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources,” Fox News reported.
Bloomberg and Reuters even dug in their heels Tuesday afternoon. Spox for Reuters and Bloomberg stand by their Deutsche bank stories, Oliver Darcy reported.
What a difference a day makes!
