A person familiar with Mueller's investigation told the news agency Reuters on Tuesday that Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from the U.S. 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.

The denial comes hours after Reuters first reported that Deutsche Bank received a subpoena for records related to Trump's credit and money transactions, citing "a person close to the matter".

Sekulow told CBS News' Major Garrett that Trump's legal team confirmed with sources at Deutsche Bank that the reports indicating Mueller's team requested Trump's bank records were false. Manafort was working to secure his release from home confinement by posting more than $10 million in bond.

Mr Mueller is investigating claims of collusion between Trump's aides and Russian officials while also probing Moscow's influence in the USA presidential election which brought Trump, the billionaire businessman into power. Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election and Trump has called the special counsel's investigation a "witch hunt".

Trump has done billions of dollars' worth of business with Deutsche Bank in the past 20 years; he has previously said that he would consider Mueller looking into his finances beyond any connection to the Russian Federation investigation "a violation". The report covers from May 17, the date of Mueller's appointment, through September 30, the end of the federal fiscal year.

The bulk of the spending- $1.7 million - has been on personnel salary and benefits, according to the report.

The Mueller probe also spent $157,339 for a variety of contractual services - $111,245 for information technology, $24,456 for transcription and $17,217 for building services.

The special counsel's overall budget has not been made public.

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.
