Special counsel Robert Mueller this week interviewed Trump Organization business associates and asked them questions about the president's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen.


McClatchy reported Thursday night that Mueller appeared unannounced at the home of a Trump associate who reportedly worked with the president's deals abroad. The special counsel's investigators were armed with "subpoenas compelling electronic records and sworn testimony," and sources close to the proceedings said they were "particularly interested in interactions" involving Cohen.

The president's longtime attorney, the report noted, has been involved in a number of Trump's overseas business deals.
