There are reports out this morning that Deutsche Bank, which has financed many of Donald Trump’s real estate projects, received a subpoena from special prosecutor Robert Mueller:

Mueller issued a subpoena to Germany’s largest lender several weeks ago, forcing the bank to submit documents on its relationship with Trump and his family, according to a person briefed on the matter, who asked not to be identified because the action has not been announced.
It looks like the proverbial red line has been crossed:
JULY 19, NYT INTERVIEW: If Mueller was looking at your finances and your family finances, unrelated to Russia — is that a red line?
Trump: I would say yeah. I would say yes.

Deutsche Bank has had Russian problems in the past:

Jared Kushner has ties to Deutsche Bank, too:

And this means that Mueller could be looking at charges against the president and/or his family other than obstruction of justice:
Mueller has subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for documents related to transactions with Trump and his family, Bloomberg reports.

No reaction from the president … yet:
DOH! #TrumpyPants is NOT going to like this at all. He starts his day around now, too. Tweetstorm in 3… 2… 1… → #DeutscheBank received a subpoena from U.S. prosecutor #Mueller demanding data on Trump. #TrumpRussia #TrumpTaxes https://t.co/wXnr6g6ZV8
