Yes, It Was Fake News: Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg Walk Back Deutsche Bank Subpoena Story

fake news mueller subpoena trump deutsche bank

As we already told you in a previous article on Tuesday ( read this for further reference: Fake News Alert: No Trump Bank Records Subpoenaed by Mueller Team Says White House) White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders contradicted mainstream media reports claiming that special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed President Trump’s Deutsche Bank records. The same day, AFP contradicted WH press secretary, claiming that no, it was not fake news but God’s honest truth.

However, clarifications were issued later both in the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg for their stories. While earlier headlines claimed that Robert Mueller’s subpoena requested documents/data about President Donald Trump business accounts, now became “ people or entities close to Mr. Trump”:

Deutsche Bank AG provided records to special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation after receiving a subpoena several weeks ago, according to a person briefed on the matter.

Those records pertain to people affiliated with President Donald Trump, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the action hasn’t been announced. Several news outlets — including Bloomberg — reported yesterday that the subpoena targeted Trump and his family’s bank records, which was disputed by Trump’s personal lawyer and the White House.

What do you know: Sarah Huckabee Sanders was completely vindicated, and mainstream media lied the American public once again. Here’s from the original article via Bloomberg:

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller zeroed in on President Donald Trump’s business dealings with Deutsche Bank AG as his investigation into alleged Russian meddling in U.S. elections widens.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.

Drudge posted this headline yesterday linking to the Bloomberg story, then later in the day when Bloomberg was exposed as fake news, it kept the same headline, but linked to the Reuters story..

Literally EVERY time the MSM has claimed ‘sources’ or ‘reports’ against President Trump, it’s been fake news. That’s the game. One agency lies, and all the others swear to it. Then when exposed they just move on the the next fake news story.
