President Donald Trump’s company says it has been turning over documents for months in response to requests from federal investigators looking into Russian election interference and possible coordination with Trump associates.
An attorney for The Trump Organization says in a statement to The Associated Press that the company has been cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation since July 2017. The company has been in routine contact with the prosecutors, turning over documents and regularly discussing the scope of requests.
The company’s cooperative posture mirrors that of the White House and the Trump campaign. Combined, they have provided more than a million pages of documents to investigators.
The Trump Organization is an umbrella entity that encompasses hundreds of companies owned by the president through a trust.
Robert Mueller, 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 Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president.
