A day after Trump warned Special Counsel Robert Mueller to not look into his family finances, Mueller announced that he will be expanding the probe to include Trump’s business transactions.

FBI investigators will be looking into Russian apartment purchases in Trump buildings. They’re also examining Trump’s involvement in SoHo development with Russian associates, the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in 2013 and the sale of a Florida mansion that Trump sold to a Russian oligarch in 2008.

They also decided to look into the Bank of Cyprus dealings in which Wilbur Ross served as the vice chairman before he became Trump’s commerce secretary and Jared Kushner’s efforts to secure financing for his family’s real estate properties.

Mueller’s investigation stems from a wide ranging money laundering probe that former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara started last year.

Bharara’s investigation was combined into Mueller’s probe which includes the Russian hacking and distribution of campaign and voter information that was stolen. It also includes former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s actions.

Earlier this year, Trump asked Bharara and 46 other attorneys to resign but when Bharara refused he was fired.

On July 26th, Trump Jr., Kushner and Manafort are scheduled to testify before the Senate committee.
