Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office has issued a subpoena to the Trump Organization for documents, including some related to Russia, the New York Times reported on Thursday, APA reports quoting Sputnik.


According to the New York Times, this is the first known time Mueller has asked for documents directly related to Trump's businesses.


The Special Counsel under the direction of former FBI Director Robert Mueller is looking into an alleged collusion between Trump's campaign and Moscow, which appears to be corroborated by the unverified dossier. Donald Trump and his key assistants repeatedly rejected allegations of any unlawful contacts with Russian officials during the election campaign.


The intelligence committees both in US Senate and the US House of Representatives were leading a similar investigation. On Monday, Texas Republican Michael Conaway, chair of the US House Intelligence Committee, announced that Republicans have reached a consensus that there was no collusion between Trump and Russian nationals or the Russian government. Nevertheless, Mueller's investigation remains ongoing.
