Report: Mueller Subpoenaed Trump Campaign For Russia Docs Last Month

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team issued a subpoena to President Trump’s campaign in mid-October for communications related to Russia, according to a Thursday report in the Wall St. Journal.

The probe seeks documents and emails containing keywords related to Russia from over a dozen top campaign officials, according to an anonymous source familiar with the matter.

While the subpoena does not require testimony before Mueller’s grand jury, the Trump campaign was said to have been surprised by the order – as they had been voluntarily turning over documents to Mueller’s team in September in “total cooperation” with the probe.

The subpoena will mark the first instance of Trump’s campaign being formally ordered by Mueller’s team to turn over information related to the investigation, notwithstanding . Mueller had previously subpoenaed former – and very short lived – Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and several of his associates, seeking banking and other financial records.

In late October, shortly after the Trump campaign had been subpoenaed, Manafort was indicted on multiple counts – including money laundering related to his work for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine. Manafort was and Tony Podesta of the Podesta Group allegedly were using a shell entity in the name of the political party to peddle Russian influence throughout Washington D.C., according to a former Podesta Group executive.

Why subpoena the Trump team if they’ve been cooperative?

Perhaps Mueller’s team thought members of the Trump campaign were withholding information. They obviously weren’t satisfied with what they had been provided prior to the subpoena.

Is Mueller’s investigation grasping at straws, or do they know the Trump team is withholding specific information? Only time will tell.

    No information is being withheld. There’s nothing and nothing will be found. Had there been anything, NSA would’ve leaked it already. To stop would mean to vindicate Trump; and that the deep state wont do. This bullshit investigation can go on indefinitely to keep Trump from investigating Crooked Shitlery instead.

    My suspicion is that all docs were turned over and there wasn’t enough evidence to prosecute. That said could be the end of DRUMPFH.

    Y’all are assuming that evidence matters. With the tools at their disposal, they can write any narrative they want. The only thing that keeps Trump in office is the fact they he is going along on the things that really matter to those who matter.

    After 15 years of illegal wars and illegal money transfers to criminal bankers et al, it is disheartening to see people talking as if some discovery of information by investigators is what matters.

    Yeesh.
