"These golf courses are just, you know, they're , for payoffs to bought US official", he added. "They don't actually make any money."

US prosecutors last year ordered the company that owns President Donald Trump's golf courses in Scotland to show its financial filings in an attempt to reveal its ownership, The Times of London reported on Monday.

The documents are part of an investigation into whether Trump still profits from his businesses. It focuses on Trump International Washington, an old post office building in the US capital that Trump converted into a luxury hotel in 2016.

Brian Frosh, the Maryland attorney general, said he was "seeking information proving that hotel revenues were flowing to the president through his affiliated entities," according to The Times.

Frosh added: "We are confident that at the end of discovery we will be able to prove our case that President Trump is violating the Constitution's emoluments clauses, America's first anti-corruption laws."

The US Constitution's emoluments clause prohibits public officials from receiving gifts or cash from foreign or state governments without congressional approval.

People investigating Trump's ties to Russia, including Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and Glenn Simpson, the cofounder of the opposition-research firm Fusion GPS, have questioned whether Moscow was financially involved in DJT Holdings.

Fusion GPS is best known for hiring the former MI6 officer Christopher Steele to produce the dossier most infamously alleging that Trump hired prostitutes to "perform a 'golden showers' (urination) show in front of him" during a visit to the Moscow Ritz-Carlton in 2013.

Simpson told the House Intelligence Committee in November 2017 that Trump's golf courses in Scotland and Ireland were "concerning" because their financial statements show "enormous amounts of capital flowing into these projects from unknown sources."

Simpson said the golf courses "don't, on their face, show Russian involvement, but what they do show is enormous amounts of capital flowing into these projects from unknown sources and — or at least on paper it says it's from the Trump Organization, but it's hundreds of millions of dollars."
