RUSSIA MEDDLING: Mueller subpoenas Trump's organisation

Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly subpoenaed the Trump Organization for documents and emails, "bringing the investigation closer to the president", the New York Times reports.

Mueller may be targeting documents related to Trump Organization proposals to build a Trump Tower skyscraper in Moscow in 2015, the reports said.

A source familiar with the investigation tells, the new subpoena is an indication the special investigation has obtained information raising more questions about the financial dealings of the Trump organizations.

Mueller has headed a special investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's presidential campaign since May 2017, after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to comment on the subpoena, reiterating the administration's position that there was "no collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation and referring further questions to the Trump Organization.

The company still reiterated its commitment to "conventional vehicles", which we assume means diesel and gasoline vehicles. It plans to purchase a total of 50 billion euro's worth of batteries to power its vehicles.

"Whether there was an effort by Russian Federation to create a back channel or assist the Trump campaign through the NRA or gun-rights groups is an open question the committee's minority has endeavored to answer for the past year", he said.

The White House declined to comment specifically on the report and referred questions to the Trump Organization. Though it is not clear how much of the subpoena is related to Trump's business outside ties to Russia, Trump said in an interview with The New York Times in July that the special counsel would be crossing a red line if he looked into his family's finances beyond any relationship with Russia. "This is old news and our assistance and cooperation with the various investigations remains the same today". The company has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russian Federation, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow.

Mueller has had similar negotiations over records, including some that involve subpoenas, with dozens of attorneys, companies and people involved in the investigation.

The reports come as Mueller has appeared to be broadening his investigation to include the influence that foreign money may have played on Trump's political activities.
