Trump's company turning over documents to federal investigators

Mueller has already indicted 13 Russians and three companies accused of meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign, and on Thursday, the Trump administration included them in sanctions it levelled at Moscow as punishment for interference in the campaign and "malicious cyberattacks".

Now the memo released by Democrats suggests investigators have confirmed that the Trump Organization was deeply involved in Moscow talks, and that the talks involved a bank that was under United States sanctions.

Mueller apparently has made a decision to cross that line anyway.

Mueller's action is likely to make Trump nervous. Asked whether Putin was behind the nerve gas attack, Trump said this. "The decision to pursue the proposal initially, and later to abandon it, was unrelated to the Donald J. Trump for President campaign". "Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets", he said in 2008, "say in Dubai, and certainly with our project in SoHo and anywhere in NY".

"No, I think that's a violation".

Getting to the bottom of what happened was always going to include taking a look at Trump Organization business records, because so numerous people involved worked for Trump. He's collecting records from a company that's inseparable from the President himself. Schmidt noted that Trump's lawyers a year ago had said the probe would end by Thanksgiving or Christmas. For them to not roll over, on these particular documents, well hell, now I want to see them too. "I'd refer you there".

Special counsel Mueller has requested documents directly related to President Trump's business dealings, including those with Russian Federation, for the first time, according to media reports. What's the White House saying about that?

The subpoena is the first indication that the special counsel is methodically approaching the issue of the president's business dealings, something Trump has previously said would be a "red line" for him. Or maybe they sold some condos to Russian Federation. Last month, CNN reported that Mueller has been investigating the president's business dealings in Russian Federation. In other words, the suggestion was that he might fire Mueller if that's where the investigation went. This is a clever sleight of hand, because the question isn't whether Trump has put money into Russia, but whether Russians have put money into Trump.

Alan Futerfas, an attorney for the Trump Organization, said in a statement that Thursday's report are "old news and our assistance and cooperation with the various investigations remains the same today". And Sarah of course repeated that the White House is cooperating also, and of course there's been no collusion, which is what the president says over and over again. Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment on the Times report. He said changes will always happen and that he likes to hear different ideas. Mueller's office has shared topics it wants to discuss with the president, according to two people familiar with the talks. She rejected the idea that all this turnover creates an image of chaos or instability.
