U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed the Trump Organisation for documents, including some related to Russia, the New York Times reported on Thursday, citing two people briefed on the matter.

Details of the subpoena were not known, the Times reported, but it was the first known time Mueller demanded materials directly related to U.S. President Donald Trump’s businesses.

Mueller is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
