Trump Admin. Sanctions Russians for 2016 Election Meddling
The Trump administration is slapping new sanctions on 19 Russians accused of meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
It comes as Trump’s campaign organization is being ordered to turn over business documents to investigators.
The Trump organization says it is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s subpoena.
Last summer, President Trump signaled that any examination of his family’s finances would cross a red line.
The subpoena suggests Mueller is digging deeper.
The government announced sanctions against five organizations and 19 people tied to Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.
Some of those people have also been indicted by the special counsel.
U.S. officials believe Russian President Vladimir Putin is overseeing a broader cyber campaign against western targets.
