Donald Trump’s personal bank details have been handed over to special counsel Robert Mueller.
The prosecutor issued a subpoena to Deutsche Bank AG in a bid to unearth its relationship with the president and his family as part of the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling with the 2016 election.

It comes after calls from Democratic law makers to provide more information on the $300 million Trump owed the bank for previous real estate deals, reports Bloomberg.
Mueller has so far indicted four people: Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, his associate Rick Gates, Trump’s ex-adviser George Papadopoulos, and — last week — Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Flynn pleaded guilty to making multiple false statements to the FBI about making contact with Russian officials before taking officer in February this year.
Damagingly, he claims he was instructed to do so by a senior official in the Trump administration. This person is believed to be Jared Kushner.

The reality of these charges throws much doubt on Trump’s theory that Russia meddling is nothing more than Democratic drama peddled by anti-Trumpers after he won the election.
And — more concerning for Trump — it gives greater weight to the chances of impeachment.
Any president can be impeached if they’re convicted of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.
If a clear link is found between Trump and collusion with Russia, he could be in breach of one or more parts of the constitution and, ultimately, get impeached.
The Democrats have been warned to hold off on pushing impeachment articles against Trump for now in case Mueller’s investigation finds a smoking gun.
