Less than two weeks before Donald Trump accepted the Republican nomination, his campaign chairman made the offer in an email, according to people familiar with the discussions. The emails are among tens of thousands of documents given to officials probing whether Trump associates worked with Russia as part of Moscow’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election.
The special counsel investigating Russian election meddling made a broad request for documents from the White House, which is working to turn over internal documents that span 13 categories, according to two people briefed on the requests. Robert S. Mueller III's team is also eyeing whether the president sought to obstruct the earlier Russia probe.
