Russia probe could reveal Trump’s closest-held secrets

President Trump says he’s disappointed in Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation. ‘He should have told me before taking office and I would have quite simply picked somebody else,’ said Trump. (July 25) APA half-dozen experts contacted by USA TODAY said they expect Mueller and his team to pursue everything from Trump’s income tax returns to the bank records underlying his companies’ real estate transactions in a quest to identify people who have financial relationships with the President and his business and political associates. Mueller’s sweeping mandate means his investigators can get, or may already have, The Trump Organization’s phone records, e-mail and contracts, exposing sensitive records and long-secret details to eventual release as part of the public record of the investigation.Trump’s real-estate business in particular has relied on wealthy Russians and other foreigners, sometimes as buyers of condos in the company’s towers around the world and as investors or partners in the projects. Trump’s son, Donald, said at a 2008 real estate conference, “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. … We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”Experts say Mueller’s move to follow the money has the potential to expose Trump, his family and his associates to legal troubles that go beyond election-year collusion with the Russians.
