One of President Trump’s personal lawyers is pushing back on reports that Deutsche Bank had received a subpoena for information related to Trump and his family’s financial records in a statement that the White House is also pointing to, when asked about the reports.

“We have confirmed that the news reports that the Special Counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the president are false,” Jay Sekulow said in a statement. “No subpoena has been issued or received. We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources.”

Sekulow’s statement was referenced by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at Tuesday’s press conference, where she added that “This is another example of the media going too far too fast, and we don’t see it going in that direction.”
