Special Counsel Robert Mueller subpoenaed documents from the Trump Organization, in a sign that his investigation is looking into President Trump’s business interests.

The New York Times reported that it wasn’t clear how many documents Mueller subpoenaed, although some are related to Russia. The report cites two sources briefed on the subpoena.

Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In recent months, he has looked into the role of foreign money, according to the New York Times. His team has asked witnesses about Emirati money flowing into the U.S. and about a possible deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Trump previously said any investigation of his family business would be crossing a “red line.”
