Skip to comments.Mueller Subpoenas Trump Organization, Demanding Documents About Russia
Posted on 03/15/2018 10:51:59 AM PDT by GIdget2004
The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trumps businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president.
The breadth of the subpoena was not clear, nor was it clear why Mr. Mueller issued it instead of simply asking for the documents from the company, an umbrella organization that oversees Mr. Trumps business ventures. In the subpoena, delivered in recent weeks, Mr. Mueller ordered the Trump Organization to hand over all documents related to Russia and other topics he is investigating, the people said.
The subpoena is the latest indication that the investigation, which Mr. Trumps lawyers once regularly assured him would be completed by now, will drag on for at least several more months. Word of the subpoena comes as Mr. Mueller appears to be broadening his investigation to examine the role foreign money may have played in funding Mr. Trumps political activities. In recent weeks, Mr. Muellers investigators have questioned witnesses, including an adviser to the United Arab Emirates, about the flow of Emirati money into the United States.
Neither White House officials nor Alan S. Futerfas, a lawyer representing the Trump Organization, immediately responded to requests for comment. The Trump Organization has typically complied with requests from congressional investigators for documents for their own inquiries into Russian election interference, and there was no indication the company planned to fight Mr. Mueller about it.

Yes, the NYT wants this to go on for months, for the rest of the Trump administration if possible. That tells us more about them than it does about Trump.
Constitutional crisis it is then...he is way off base here. Fire Sessions for letting all this take place. Might as well go to war....
What’s the reason again that Trump refuses to fire this guy?
Tillerson or Cohen never did as much damage to the President as Mueller. And, by extension, damage to the American people.
Yup. Fire him already. This is ridiculous.
I’m now convinced Mueller’s sole remaining task is to force Trump to fire him.
The “Trump Organization?”
Which of the 100 companies is he talking about?
Mr. President, tell Mueller to go pound sand.
And then fire him.
“Attempt at forcing Trump to react negatively and thereby creating an obstruction charge.”
Correct. Mueller’s job is now to get fired.
A roll of toilet paper, used or unused, would be more appropriate..
This is a couple days after the House Intel committee tossed the garbage out. Mueller always escalates after bad news for him.
Bingo. Yes indeed. There is always some breathless breaking news leak from the perpetual Mueller investigation to negate any positive Trump news.
I’m sure it’s all a coincidence. But there sure are a boatload of coincidences.
Trump has mentioned his redline to Mueller.
Sometime this year yeah fired. It’s a twofer. Rosenstein should be fired with him.
Whats the reason again that Trump refuses to fire this guy?
No support from the GOPe.
See my #66.
Mueller may have finally crossed the line.
For Gods sake... for the countrys sake .. for all our sakes... FIRE MUELLER .. RIGHT AFTER HES TOLD NO! No way, no time, and he has no legal right to any of Trumps personal papers..
I am so sick of the likes of mueller and his swamp dwellers.
Ditto. THIS IS HURTING OUR COUNTRY. This travesty needed to have the plug pulled it ages ago. These people are NOT going to stop until they find something to destroy our President. They are evil and corrupt both in the things they do and in the things they DON’T do (that is, go after the REAL criminals in all of this!).
How much longer are we-the-people supposed to tolerate this? Have we NO options rather than just sit back and watch our President and country destroyed by these greedy, deep state assholes?
What the Hell is the Trump Organization?
Some Organization the Hillary Minions made up ?
If a platoon of lawyers and a division of accountants used an electron microscope to go through 10, 20, 30 (?) years of tax returns, business loans and business deals, nearly 100% of such invasive searches would find something improper with them.
And that's just the tax code.
You are probably breaking the law right now
Heck, even if a JUNIOR lawyer looked hard enough, nearly EVERYONE in the country could be eventually charged with some crime or another.
Since there was NO probable cause to go down this path, the whole thing is an attempt to NULLIFY the election of Trump and STEAL the votes away from those of us who voted for him.
“Mr. President, tell Mueller to go pound sand.”
The correct response is for the trust that manages Trump’s empire to publicly say NO.
Just plain no.
Let him go to court and present the probable cause for the subpoena.
As many have figured out Gowdy is all about kubuki theater.
