Bloomberg in embarrassing climbdown admits it was WRONG to say Mueller was going through Trump's bank records
Bloomberg News has been forced to admits bombshell report claiming Robert Mueller was going through Donald Trump's bank records was wrong.
Bloomberg had reported that Mueller had demanded a Deutsche Bank hand over details of its lending to Trump and his family, adding that he'd 'zeroed in' on the president.
The report has since been changed to say the bank records 'pertain to people affiliated' with Trump.
The Wall Street Journal also issued a correction which read: 'An earlier subheadline said a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller's office requested data and documents about President Trump's accounts. The subpoena concerns people or entities close to Mr. Trump.'
It's the second high profile blunder in the press in a week after ABC News broke into its regular programming on Friday with a special report saying Trump had directed Gen. Mike Flynn to make contact with the Russians in 2016.
Unfortunately, that report was incorrect and the network had to suspend the reporter Brian Ross, for four weeks without pay.
President Donald Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow had denied that the First Family's banking records had been subpoenaed, after Reuters reported thatGermany's largest bank received a subpoena from Mueller several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used his form of words to echo the denial.

These news organizations need to get it together.

This investigation isn't going to do anything. If they wanted to convict drumpf of a crime, there are half a dozen they could indict him on now. It's a diversion. This will be going on until after the next prez election, then it'll sudden;y disappear. It's been a year, and nothing's been done.

R3 you determined that this investigation should take how long exactly, and that determination was based on what exactly?

Entities close to Trump = all of Trump's businesses which aren't actually in his name in order to protect him from financial liability
It's Trump, his family, and Kushner...all of whom magically don't actually own anything because everything is leveraged and borrowed against to the hilt.

Cue the MSM to claim that the MSM never creates real fake news.

The op is lying. Duetscha bank has been soepened.
|by Ghost of Fitzmas Past||reply 8||12/06/2017|
Duetscha Bank will give Mueller everything he wants. The problem is, Duetscha bank sold Trumps dept to Putin. So where do you think that leads?

When the president and his lawyers don't like the truth....they always call it a lie. This is no lie and Trump is a treasonist criminal. That is the truth.

Keep in mind that any subpoenas issued quite likely forbid them to disclose any information regarding said subpoena. That Sekulow (allegedly)wasn't told doesn't mean that there were none.

Deutsche Bank hasn't denied they were served, which is the more important point.

Stop listening to the MSNBC echo chamber.

Mueller will read Op's post and then think, "What a great idea! I should get all of Trump;s bank records."

Reuters were the ones who broke the story in the U.S., from an article in the German Handelsblatt. Did they retract? I don't see that either one of them did.
No one except far-right websites are reporting this. It sounds like spin to make it seem like this is fake news.
Which means it's really bothering Trump. Good.

Really? Of all the many lies that we have been told by this administration on nearly a daily basis and when a couple of news stories are wrong it is a big deal? When has this administration ever admitted that they have told a lie or were mistaken? At least these news agencies came back in and corrected themselves. I'm still waiting for someone to create a scorecard that keeps track of the proven lies we have heard and provide us with a daily update.

I don't think they were wrong, I think they said that the financials were reportedly Trump's when they are actually Trump associates.
This has happened before, and I'm sure part of the problem is that his sons are being investigated. It's easy to read a report and think Trump's financials were investigated, but then it turns out it was Trump Jr's, or Jared's or Eric's.
I'm really not seeing how this is some kind of LIEberal Media Conspiracy!!1! that people are claiming it is.
