Mueller subpoenas Trump Organization, asks for documents on Russia

(CNN) Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed the Trump Organization for documents, including some related to Russia, The New York Times reported Thursday.

The Times, citing two people briefed on the matter, said the subpoena was delivered "in recent weeks" and is a request for President Donald Trump's business to turn over documents related to Russia and other topics of the special counsel investigation.

The report is the first publicly known time that Mueller has demanded documents related to Trump's businesses.

Trump has repeatedly railed against the investigation and denied any wrongdoing.

In a slug fest between Trump and Mueller.. i think Mueller is going to be mauled. It'll be ugly. And sooner or later Mueller is going to be carried, bloody and bruised, out the ring.

Will the President be testifying from Twitter?

Otherwise, the "ORANGE MENACE" will probably find it difficult to formulate real answers that make sense and are credible without talking about how GREAT he is.

Trump is a waste of orange skin.

Trump has his impeachment lawyer on the payroll so he is getting himself ready.

I would say this might explain why Trump has been having a meltdown in recent weeks but he has a meltdown every week, so...

Remember that it was Trump's organization that was subpoenaed, not the man himself. Flossy's misleading post title seems to have got a few of you excited.

I agree with Coldstream. Mueller will come out of this the worse for wear.

You're just hurt that no one pays attention to you, OB. Perhaps that is the reason that you have an unhealthy fixation on President Trump.

Did you know that he's been president for 1 year and 54 days?

He was thinking of you, Cliffy. You have difficulty communicating with words, so you resort to pictures. Many times, those pictures are irrelevant to the thread.

Nice try though.

LOL....... YOU seem to be paying plenty of attention to OB.

Wonder why that is..

Now back to a very good topic.



*****

bet The Trump lawyers are twisting themselves int pretzels......trying to figure out how to avoid this or contain it. Risky business for them. Trump himself is probably having explosive tantrums.

This could go really ugly..... but the way Trump handles these situations......goes to the character of the man. Trump does not care how low or ugly things go......in his obsession to be the "winner" or get his way.

Would you like me to start an OB thread? Maybe we can all send you a virtual attention card.

McCabe faces possible firing days before scheduled retirement: report

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is facing a possible firing days ahead of his scheduled retirement, according to a new report.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is looking at a recommendation to fire McCabe, people briefed on the matter told The New York Times for a report published Wednesday.

The recommendation comes amid an internal review looking into a choice McCabe made in 2016 to allow agency officials to speak with reporters about a Clinton Foundation investigation.

ADVERTISEMENT
According to the Times, a report from the Justice Department's inspector general regarding the internal review triggered an FBI disciplinary process that recommended McCabe's firing. Sessions now has to decide whether to accept the recommendation, according to the Times.

McCabe's retirement is set to go into effect Sunday and his firing could jeopardize his pension as a 21-year veteran of the bureau, according to the report.

A spokeswoman for the Justice Department told the Times that the department "follows a prescribed process by which an employee may be terminated."

“That process includes recommendations from career employees, and no termination decision is final until the conclusion of that process. We have no personnel announcements at this time," spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said.

McCabe stepped down from his position and took a leave of absence earlier this year after facing pressure from Republicans and President Trump.

GOP members tied to Trump had accused McCabe of bias in his handling of the Clinton email probe, and Trump had also openly attacked the top FBI official.

The Times reported earlier this month that the inspector general's report was expected to criticize McCabe for allowing agency officials to provide information about an ongoing investigation to the media.

McCabe reportedly authorized FBI officials to provide information to The Wall Street Journal in its investigation into how the agency handled the probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of State.

The deputy director reportedly allowed officials to discuss a meeting detailed in an October 2016 Journal report, during which some top Department of Justice officials reportedly decided against authorizing a grand jury or subpoenas in the Clinton investigation.

Flossy and OB's fantasies.

Trump Organization says it’s been cooperating with Mueller investigation

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s company said Thursday that it has been turning over documents for months in response to requests from the special counsel looking into Russian election interference and possible coordination with Trump associates.

Trump said last year that special counsel Robert Mueller would be crossing a red line by looking into his personal finances — and those of his family — that are not related to Russia. The Trump Organization is made up of hundreds of companies owned by Trump through a trust and managed by his two adult sons.

On Thursday, an attorney for The Trump Organization said in a statement to The Associated Press that the company has been “fully cooperative” with 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.

Combined, they have provided more than a million pages of documents to investigators.

“This is old news and our assistance and cooperation with the various investigations remains the same today,” said Alan Futerfas, who represents the company.

The statement came in response to a report by The New York Times that The Trump Organization had received a subpoena from Mueller that included a request for documents related to Russia.

He will just professionally acknowledge it as being the case.

Okay, I'll bite. How do you know he's a "first class professional?"

Have you had personal dealings with him? Do you know someone who has dealt with him? Post your source.
