US Special Counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly ordered to see data on bank accounts held by Donald Trump and his family.

Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from Mueller several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, the person said, without giving details, adding key documents had been handed over in the meantime. "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources".

A federal judge has ordered Paul Manafort to prove that he did not violate a court order, after prosecutors revealed that he has been working on an op-ed essay with a colleague alleged to have ties to Russian intelligence. He had reached a tentative agreement with the government.

Despite previous denials due to privacy issues, Deutsche Bank - which has made loans to the Trump Organization for millions of dollars - finally delivered the required information to the investigation, something that implies that the special lawyer has come to the heart of the matter.

The special counsel is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians connected with the Kremlin in the lead-up to the 2016 election.

The $3.2 million spent only covers Mueller's probe, not the various congressional investigations of Russia's meddling in the election.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's "Russiagate" probe cost United States taxpayers $3.2 million in the first six months, mostly on salaries and benefits.

The expenses are from the date of Mueller's appointment, May 17, through September 30, the end of the federal government's fiscal year.

Mueller's office says in the report that about $1.7 million was for salary and benefits, and more than $223,000 was spent on travel-related expenses. The rest was spent on the relocation of Justice Department employees temporarily assigned to the expanding investigation, the report shows. He spent $26,592 in the probe's first phase, from the time he was appointed on December 30, 2003 to March 31, 2004, on personnel, travel, contracts and supplies, according to an audit from the Government Accountability Office.
