Michael Cohen Lands On Mueller's Subpoena 'Hit List'

Michael Cohen Lands On Mueller's Subpoena 'Hit List'

Special counsel Robert Mueller, who's leading an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential elections, has issued a subpoena for all communications from one witness regarding President Donald Trump and nine other people, Axios reported Sunday. Last week, NBC News reported Mueller was asking witnesses if Trump directed hacked Democratic emails to be released.

Since 13 Russians and three Russian groups were charged with conspiracy to defraud the US less than a month ago, numerous news reports have indicated Trump also was under investigation for obstruction of justice. Manafort and Gates were first charged in late October, former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, and former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and agreed to cooperate with the government as part of his plea agreement.

Price also noted that the inclusion of Roger Stone, who only worked briefly in the early stages of the campaign, suggests Mueller is investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation.
