The news comes a day after Trump told The New York Times that Mueller would cross a line if he expanded the probe to his business ties.
Mueller is the special counsel appointed by the Justice Department to investigate Russian election meddling and alleged collusion by members of the Trump campaign.
Bloomberg reports the counsel is probing purchases from Russian buyers at Trump properties, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow, a SoHo development involving Russian associates and Trump’s 2008 sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch.
…The [New York] Times separately reported on Wednesday the president’s ties to Deutsche Bank were also facing scrutiny.
Trump has a long history with the German bank, which has loaned him money in the past.
Federal investigators have reportedly been in touch with the bank regarding Trump’s accounts. Congress also requested oversight into Trump transactions with the bank, but the bank has so far refused to provide information.
Deutsche Bank will most likely have to give information about the president’s accounts to Mueller, according to Bloomberg.
Business regulators are also going through the loans from Deutsche Bank to Trump’s businesses.
