Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to hand over documents—some of which are related to Russia—as he widens the scope of his investigation into alleged ties between top Trump officials and Russia. The revelation indicates that Mueller’s probe is likely to continue for at least several more months. Last summer, President Trump told The New York Times Mueller would be crossing a “red line” if he investigates Trump family finances. This comes as Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee said Thursday the Trump Organization was “actively negotiating” a deal with a sanctioned Russian bank during the 2016 presidential campaign. The charge stands in stark contrast to a conclusion reached by Republican leaders of the committee earlier this week, who declared they found no evidence of collusion between Trump’s campaign and the Russians.
