  • Mueller Subpoenaing Documents From Trump Company In Russia Probe

Special counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed the Trump Organization for documents involving the firm's dealings with Russian Federation.

The S&P 500 ended slightly lower on Thursday in choppy trade as strong jobs and manufacturing data was balanced by the Times report on Mueller's subpoena.

The breadth of the subpoena that came to light Thursday was not clear, nor was it clear why Mueller issued it instead of simply asking for the documents from the company, an umbrella organization that oversees Trump's business ventures. The Trump organization has been voluntarily giving the special counsel documents to assist with its investigation, but now faces an official subpoena.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, reiterated during her daily briefing that the president was cooperating with the special counsel inquiry and referred further questions to the Trump Organization.

Details of the subpoena were not available, the Times reported.

However, the subpoena represents the latest indication of the breadth of the special counsel's almost year-long, wide-ranging probe into possible collusion between Russian agents and members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

This is the first known time he has demanded materials directly related to US President Donald Trump's businesses.

Trump attorney Ty Cobb declined a request for comment.

Mueller has reportedly asked witnesses about discussions relating to a potential deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

"We're getting very close to having the Cabinet and the other things that I want", Trump said shortly after firing Tillerson. "I have no loans and don't have any deals in Russian Federation".

In a statement released by lawyer's representing the Trump Organization, the legal team called reports of Mueller's latest action "old news".

In another email obtained by the newspaper, Sater wrote that he would get "Putin on this programme and we will get Donald elected". The Moscow project did not go ahead.

"It's about time. We've been overdue in imposing sanctions", Sen. The Democrats did not indicate the source of their information.

The investigation and leaked emails have put forth evidence that the governments of Israel and the UAE also tried to gain influence with the Trump administration.

But now that we're here, I feel like it's important to tighten up the breathlessness around this subpoena, which we only know about because of a leak to the New York Times.

Today, when asked about it, Sanders didn't answer the question. When Trump is asked about whether he has such ties, he tends to say things such as, "For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russian Federation".

Republicans on the House intelligence committee shared their own draft report about the committee's investigation with Democrats this week. Plans discussed before and during the 2016 campaign. Eric Trump has denied those remarks.

I know it's unsafe and, frankly, foolish to apply rational self-interest rules to Donald Trump, but I don't think this subpoena, or more accurately, the leak of the existence of a subpoena that was issued some weeks ago, will lead to Robert Mueller's firing.
