A new report that found special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed the Trump Organization for documents relating Russian Federation and other subjects of the investigation could be awful news for President Donald Trump.
In a July interview with The New York Times, Mr. Trump said that if the special counsel were to look into his family's finances, unrelated to Russian Federation, it would be a violation of what Mueller was charged to investigate.
The subpoena's intention was to "clean up" and to ensure that all related documents are handed over to the special counsel.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated during her daily briefing Thursday that the president was cooperating with the inquiry and referred questions to the Trump Organization. "This is old news and our assistance and cooperation with the various investigations remains the same today".
Reports do suggest that the company has so far cooperated and handed over requested materials, and the Times says the organization doesn't appear to be looking to fight the subpoena.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) said Thursday if Democrats win back Congress in the 2018 midterms, they'll be forced to investigate not only Russian meddling in the 2016 election but the 2018 one as well because of Republicans inviting more interference.
News of the subpoena broke shortly after the Trump administration announced a new raft of sanctions on Russia, including Russian nationals previously indicted in the special counsel probe.
