It would seem Robert Mueller is going to cross that red line President Trump warned him about.
As part of his recent wide-ranging interview with New York Times, Trump went after the former FBI director over his leadership of the special counsel into the investigations of Russian 2016 election interference. As part of the discussion, Trump said investigators would do well to not look at his family’s finances any further beyond connections to Russia.
According to a report from Bloomberg, Mueller’s probe is about to widen its scope by looking into transactions involving the Trump Organization and the businesses of his associates. Beyond Trump’s dealings with Russian figures, the investigation will look into Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross‘ dealings with the Bank of Cyprus, as well as Jared Kushner‘s real-estate financing history.
As part of the investigation, Mueller is examining an old money-laundering probe from former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, Michael Flynn‘s history, and the Trump Organization’s previous licensing deals. Mueller is also examining Trump’s connection to the Agalarovs, the affluent Moscow family who recently became noteworthy over their relevance to Donald Trump Jr.‘s meeting with a Russian lawyer last year.
