Red line? Mueller subpoenas Trump Organization

USA special counsel Robert Mueller delivered a subpoena to the Trump Organization requesting material related to President Donald Trump's businesses, including any related to Russian Federation.

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.

An attorney for the Trump Organization said in a statement to The Associated Press that the company has been "fully cooperative" with Mueller's investigation since July.

Among the Trump Organization's holdings are golf clubs, hotels and licensing agreements for the use of the Trump name on properties and other products.

White House special counsel Ty Cobb had no comment.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also said Thursday that the president was cooperating with the inquiry and referred questions to the Trump Organization.

Details of the subpoena were not available, the newspaper said.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel couldn't help but bring everything back to his onetime guest Stormy Daniels, who recently sued Trump, claiming their non-disclosure agreement is invalid since he never signed it.




However, the subpoena represents the latest indication of the breadth of the special counsel's almost year-long, wide-ranging probe into possible collusion between Russian agents and members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

A year ago 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.

A comment about Russian Federation by Eric Trump, the president's middle son, also drew scrutiny when it emerged previous year.

The memo stated that there were "critical unanswered questions" about the sources of Trump's personal and corporate financing, including his relationship with his biggest lender, Deutsche Bank.

Republicans on the House intelligence committee shared their own draft report about the committee's investigation with Democrats this week.

Mueller has 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 leveled at Russia as punishment for interference in the campaign and "malicious cyberattacks". He has also been very, very clear that there has been no collusion between his campaign and the Russians.

Meanwhile, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee moved earlier this week to close their investigation, saying they found no "collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia, as well as denying that Russian efforts to interfere in the election were done to bolster Trump, a central tenet of the U.S. intelligence community's conclusion about the meddling.
