RUSSIA MEDDLING: Mueller subpoenas Trump's organisation

Swalwell replied he was heartened to see that special counsel Robert Mueller had issued a subpoena for Trump Organization documents about Russian Federation and called for the publication of Intelligence Committee transcripts.

The White House and the Trump Organisation have yet to comment on the subpoenas.

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.

The subpoena's intention was to "clean up" and to ensure that all related documents are handed over to the special counsel.

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.

"This is old news and our assistance and cooperation with the various investigations remains the same today", Futefas said. The Times reported that witnesses who have been interviewed by the special counsel were asked about a "possible real estate deal in Moscow".

Word of the subpoena also comes as Mueller appears to be broadening his investigation to examine the role foreign money may have played in funding Trump's political activities.

Still, a Gallup survey from the same year found almost half of Americans believe immigrants make "the crime situation" worse. Sessions says the law illegally interferes with the federal government's supremacy on matters of immigration enforcement.

George Nader, a Middle East specialist tied to secret meetings between the UAE and Trump associates, is reportedly cooperating with Mueller.

In addition to the company's record production, the White House and the Trump campaign combined have provided more than a million pages of documents to Mueller's investigators.

Previous reports found that Mueller had requested documents related to the Trump family from Deutche Bank; the latest subpoenas could help confirm information found there.

Trump's lawyers are in negotiations with Mueller's office about whether and how to allow his investigators to interview the president.

Mueller's investigators have been asking witnesses about Trump's business activities in Russian Federation prior to his presidential run, including an unrealized attempt for a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Mueller is investigating Russian attempts to influence the 2016 US election, and potential collusion by Trump aides.
