Skip to comments.Mueller Subpoenas Trump Organization, Demanding Documents About Russia
Posted on 03/15/2018 10:51:59 AM PDT by GIdget2004
The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trumps businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president.
The breadth of the subpoena was not clear, nor was it clear why Mr. Mueller issued it instead of simply asking for the documents from the company, an umbrella organization that oversees Mr. Trumps business ventures. In the subpoena, delivered in recent weeks, Mr. Mueller ordered the Trump Organization to hand over all documents related to Russia and other topics he is investigating, the people said.
The subpoena is the latest indication that the investigation, which Mr. Trumps lawyers once regularly assured him would be completed by now, will drag on for at least several more months. Word of the subpoena comes as Mr. Mueller appears to be broadening his investigation to examine the role foreign money may have played in funding Mr. Trumps political activities. In recent weeks, Mr. Muellers investigators have questioned witnesses, including an adviser to the United Arab Emirates, about the flow of Emirati money into the United States.
Neither White House officials nor Alan S. Futerfas, a lawyer representing the Trump Organization, immediately responded to requests for comment. The Trump Organization has typically complied with requests from congressional investigators for documents for their own inquiries into Russian election interference, and there was no indication the company planned to fight Mr. Mueller about it.

What the Hell is the Trump Organization?
I would send him a copy of the Steele Dossier and a Picture of Hillary
“”””The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trumps businesses,”””””
BUSTED!!!!!!!!!! They are gonna go through his receipts and find that he actually did order a whole case of Russian dressing last year. The smoking gun has been found.
This is a couple days after the House Intel committee tossed the garbage out. Mueller always escalates after bad news for him. I guess he doesn’t have anybody else to indict right now.
For God’s sake... for the country’s sake .. for all our sakes... FIRE MUELLER .. RIGHT AFTER HE’S TOLD NO! No way, no time, and he has no legal right to any of Trump’s personal papers..
I am so sick of the likes of mueller and his swamp dwellers.
Meewlers and the NYT’s girlfriend Andie McCabe could very well be fired. They are having a sissy fit. I thought the Moron asked for this months ago.
Every time I hear Mueller’s name ,I say a little curse on Sessions.
"All documents" "related to Russia?" That could be just about anything, even it tangentially related to russia.
Whomever thought this meuller witch hunt was winding down was not thinking clearly.
Send him an empty file folder which if there were any would include Russian documents.
Jeff Sessions has been AG for 1 year, 1 month, 6 days.
What a total mess sessions wrought when he chickened out and recused himself rather than fight!
Attempt at forcing Trump to react negatively and thereby creating an obstruction charge.
So the guy was hired to investigate any Trump - Russia connection and collusion.
And he’s just now, 14 months later, asking for Russia related documents from the Trump Organization?
Where can I get a gig like that?
Still waiting to see how much money the Clinton foundation took from russia.
Or an investigation into Obamas fund raising from tens of thousands of untraced donations from international credit cards.
ONLY the surface. What about the case of VODKA he’s been serving in his many locations?
Do any of those places serve CAVIAR on a cracker?
This could be what they were looking for all along.
Also I’ve “heard” the Trump enjoys the “1812 Overture” and other music written by RUSSIAN composers. This is deep.
THIS IS IT.
Mueller is looking for financial crimes including links to Russian banks and loans.
THIS IS WHAT MUELLER WAS AFTER FROM THE BEGINNING.THERE WAS NO COLLUSION. IT WAS PRETENSE.
Mueller. Still looking for that non-existent needle in a haystack.
All the while ignoring that every single blade of hay in said haystack represents another corrupt liberal democrat that he SHOULD be investigating.
“Every time I hear Muellers name ,I say a little curse on Sessions.”
I do the same. I really didn’t think it was possible to despise a person as much as I do Sessions.
