WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - Special Counsel Robert Mueller has issued subpoenas to the Trump Organization in the ongoing investigation into Russia, according to a new report by The New York Times.

It is unclear exactly what documents the subpoena requested or why Mueller opted to seek one rather than asking the company for them.

The Trump Organization maintains that it has complied with requests for documents from congressional investigators and has not indicated an intent to fight Mueller's order.

“Since July 2017, we have advised the public that the Trump Organization is fully cooperative with all investigations, including the special counsel, and is responding to their requests,” Alan S. Futerfas, a lawyer representing the Trump Organization, told the Times. “This is old news and our assistance and cooperation with the various investigations remains the same today.”

Witnesses interviewed by Mueller have reportedly been asked about a possible real estate deal Trump may have pursued in Moscow in 2015.
