Special Counsel Robert Mueller has spent more than $3.2 million in the opening months of his federal criminal investigation into Russian interference in last year's USA election and whether President Donald Trump or anyone close to him colluded in it.

As is to be expected when he feels fussed, the President may react badly to this news, especially after having previously warned that, "if Mueller examined his family's finances beyond any relationship with Russian Federation he'd consider it "a violation", as Bloomberg recalls.

Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from Mueller several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, the person added, confirming a report by German daily Handelsblatt published on Tuesday.

Then not long after that, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow confirmed to Reuters that there was no Trump finances subpoena sent to Deutsche Bank.

This may turn out to be no big deal - perhaps Mueller will find that all Trump's transactions with Deutsche Bank were above-board and free of any amusing business, and also that nothing he discovers there will lead to evidence of any other misconduct on Trump's part.

Sekulow was responding to a report from German business newspaper Handelsblatt that Mueller had subpoenaed records from Deutsche Bank as part of his investigation into possible Russian involvement in the USA presidential election campaign.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's office spent $3.2 million during the first few months of his investigation into Russian election interference and possible coordination with associates of President Donald Trump.

The $3.2 million spent only covers Mueller's probe, not the various congressional investigations of Russia's meddling in the election.

Deutsche Bank did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"One obvious question is why Trump and those around him expressed interest in improving relations with Russian Federation as a top foreign policy priority, and whether or not any personal considerations played any part in that", the second official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. "Look, this is about Russian Federation".

In 2012, his Trump International Hotel Hotel and Tower in Chicago was loaned up to $640m, according to a property filing.

Citing two people familiar with the meeting, CNN reported that former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn was the prime topic of the conversation between Kushner and Mueller's team.

Former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates appeared in court after being indicted by a federal grand jury in October.

The special counsel has over a dozen lawyers working for his office.
