RUSSIA MEDDLING: Mueller subpoenas Trump's organisation

The probe by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russia’s influence on the last presidential election is about to get murky after an organisation belonging to President Donald Trump got subpoenaed.

According to a New York Times report, the special investigation led by Mueller into possible collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is now demanding documents related to Russia.

Reports say the demand marks the first direct requests for documents from the Trump business empire by Mueller.

The development is coming two weeks after Sam Nunberg, former aide to Trump said he would risk jail term by not complying with a subpoena served him by Mueller but later retracted his comments.

The former Trump campaign aide said he was angry over Mueller’s request to have him appear in front of a grand jury and turn over thousands of emails and other communications with other ex-officials in an interview with The Associated Press.

Nunberg who first worked for one of Trump’s businesses and later helped advice Trump’s presidential campaign, later backed off his defiance by saying he would probably cooperate in the end by finding a way to comply.
