Special Counsel Robert Mueller Subpoenaed Trump Business for Russia Documents

President Donald Trump's company said today that it has been turning over documents for months in response to requests from the special counsel investigating Russian election interference and possible coordination with Trump associates.

Mueller is investigating Russian election meddling and any ties to the Trump campaign.

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. And though it is standard practice in these sorts of cases for investigators to issue subpoenas, it's not obvious why it would be necessary if the Trump Organization were completely forthcoming with all of the special counsel's requests. In the subpoena, delivered in recent weeks, Mr. Mueller ordered the Trump Organization to hand over all records related to Russian Federation and other topics he is investigating, the people said.

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.

The details of the subpoena are not available. The order is the first known instance of the special counsel demanding records directly related to President Trump's businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. Trump and his children worked closely with him on the launch of the Trump SoHo Hotel and other real estate projects in the U.S. long before he set himself on course for the White House.

Witnesses have already been asked about planned property deals in Moscow.

Sater's intersection with the Trump Organisation - and the subpoena that landed on the company's doorstep - probably should be reminders to the President, his family, and their lawyers that Mueller is content to draw his own lines in this investigation.

It is also clear that the people will vote for the non BJP candidates who have the highest chances of winning in the election'. The Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party do not work well together.

Previous year a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed that the Kremlin had received an email in January 2016 from the Trump Organisation's chief counsel at the time, Michael Cohen, asking for support for the project. The Democrats did not indicate the source of their information.

Trump also told reporters he had not been contacted by investigators at that time.

Because of this incriminating inference, grand jury subpoenas can raise Fifth Amendment concerns. "It certainly looks like the Russians were behind it", Trump said. 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.

In a separate statement texted to ABC News at the time, Cohen says, "The Trump Moscow proposal was simply one of many development opportunities that the Trump Organization considered and ultimately rejected".

The Senate Judiciary Committee, Senate Intelligence Committee and House Oversight Committee investigations are still ongoing.

Trump has been making deals for a very long time, and there are many Trump projects that are full of shady characters and questionable transactions with money moving around the world, including that of the Trump Tower in Toronto, which also went bankrupt.
