Special counsel Robert Mueller has issued subpoenas to the Trump family business for documents related to Russia. The subpoena was issued sometime over the past several weeks. The US president repeatedly denied having any business dealings in Russia.
Trump said, “I own nothing in Russia. I have no loans and don’t have any deals in Russia.”
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.
In an interview with “The New York Times” last summer, president Trump said the Special counsel would be crossing a red line if it expanded into an area related to Trump business dealings.
One possible area of inquiry plans to build a Trump Tower and the tallest building in the world in Moscow. Plans discussed before and during the 2016 campaign. In an exclusive interview with George Stephanopoulos, Felix Sater, a former business associate of Donald Trump’s, discussed the details of the plans he says continues even after Trump started running for president. Sater says he wrote e-mails to one of Trump’s lawyers saying the deal would help his campaign.
As the Russia investigation expands, president Trump joined with the leader of Britain, France, and Germany in condemning Russia for the poison attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter in England. These come three days after Theresa may blame Russia for the attack.
