ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Donald Trump endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore saying he thinks Moore is going to do 'very well'. "I think he's going to do very well," Trump said. "We don't want to have a liberal Democrat in Alabama, believe me." The Republican Party will resume funding the embattled Moore, an official said on Tuesday. "We are the political arm of the president and we stand with the president," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The RNC cut ties with Moore last month after several women accused the former Alabama judge of sexual assault or misconduct when they were teenagers and Moore was in his early 30s. Moore, 70, has denied the accusations. Reuters has not independently verified the reports. Moore will face off with Democratic candidate and former U.S. attorney Doug Jones in a special election on Dec. 12. Trump did not answer a reporter's question about Deutsche Bank. A U.S. federal investigator probing alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election asked Deutsche Bank for data on accounts held by President Donald Trump and his family, a person close to the matter said on Tuesday. Germany's largest bank received a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller several weeks ago to provide information on certain money and credit transactions, the person said, without giving details, adding that key documents had been handed over in the meantime. Deutsche Bank has lent the Trump Organization hundreds of millions of dollars for real estate ventures and is one of the few major lenders that has given large amounts of credit to Trump in the past decade. A string of bankruptcies at his hotel and casino businesses during the 1990s made most of Wall Street wary of extending him credit.
