FAKE NEWS: Mueller Has Not Subpoenaed Deutsche Bank on Trump’s Finances **Updated**
Media was set ablaze Tuesday morning after Bloomberg reported Dirty Cop Robert Mueller subpoenaed President Donald Trump’s Deutsche Bank records.
Now it is being reported that Trump’s legal team has confirmed there has been no subpoena from Robert Mueller’s office sent to Deutsche Bank asking for Trump’s finances.
More fake news!
Bloomberg reported on Mueller sending Deutsche bank a subpoena:
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.
Chief White House Correspondent for Fox News, John Roberts reported, “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”

“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 cited an unnamed source in their fake news report and caused a media firestorm. This is how fake news is spread. Most people often see the original fake news story and never the correction/retraction.
Or was this fake news leaked on purpose by team Mueller?
Update: Spox for Reuters and Bloomberg stand by their Deutsche bank stories, Oliver Darcy reported.
Spokespeople for Reuters & Bloomberg tell me they stand by their Deutsche bank stories, despite denial from Trump’s lawyer.
