Trump Organization documents, some related to Russia, have been subpoenaed by special counsel Robert Mueller, The New York Times is reporting.

The subpoena might be the first time Mueller’s team has asked for records about President Donald Trump’s businesses, the newspaper said.

It wasn’t immediately clear what all the subpoena covered or why the special counsel sought a subpoena instead of just asking for the records.

The Trump’s company organization told The Associated Press it has been turning over documents for months in response to requests from federal investigators looking into Russian election interference and possible coordination with Trump associates.

An attorney for The Trump Organization says the company has been cooperating the ivnestigation since July 2017. The company has been in routine contact with the prosecutors, turning over documents and regularly discussing the scope of requests.

The company’s cooperative posture mirrors that of the White House and the Trump campaign. Combined, they have provided more than a million pages of documents to investigators.

The Trump Organization is an umbrella entity that encompasses hundreds of companies owned by the president through a trust.
