Special Counsel Robert Mueller has expanded his investigation to include business transactions involving President Trump’s companies and those of his associates, Bloomberg News is reporting.
The news comes a day after Trump appeared to caution Mueller against expanding his investigation in that direction.
“I think that’s a violation. Look, this is about Russia,” Trump said in an interviewwith The New York Times when asked whether Mueller will have crossed a red line by broadening the investigation to include Trump’s companies.
Mueller was appointed special counsel in May to look into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, an allegation that Trump strongly denied.
