Val Broeksmit, the son of senior executive Bill Broeksmit, reportedly had a trove of bank documents and spoke to the law enforcement agency following his father's suicide.

The House Intelligence and Financial Services committees have subpoenaed Deutsche Bank records relating to Trump. 

“We remain committed to cooperating with authorized investigations,” a Deutsche Bank spokesperson told The Hill in a statement, but declined to comment on Broeksmit.

The Times reported that Broeksmit told the FBI that the bank has a culture of “fraud and dirt" and told investigators his story. Agents told Broeksmit he could have a special advisory title and pledged to keep him updated on the investigation, according to the newspaper. They also reportedly allowed him to let the public know of his status as a witness in the investigation and helped his French girlfriend get a visa. 

“I am more emotionally invested in this than anyone in the world,” Broeksmit told the Times of his work with the FBI. “I would love to be their special informer.”
