Mueller wants 150 blank sub­poe­nas

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Jeff Mor­dock

Spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller on Wed­nes­day asked for 150 blank sub­poe­nas in the Eastern District of Vir­ginia where he has filed charges against for­mer Trump cam­paign chair­man Paul Manafort.

The re­quest cov­ers 75 po­ten­tial sub­poe­nas. In le­gal cases, two sub­poe­nas are is­sued for each wit­ness with one go­ing to the in­di­vid­ual and a sec­ond sent to the court. A blank sub­poena al­lows the govern­ment to fill in the name of a wit­ness after it is served.

Mr. Mueller re­vealed lit­tle about the sub­poe­nas in the two-page fil­ing, say­ing only that the re­cip­i­ent must ap­pear at the fed­eral court­house in Alexan­dria, Vir­ginia on July 25 to tes­tify.

Mr. Manafort’s trial on money laun­der­ing, tax eva­sion and other charges is set to start July 25.

Mr. Mueller’s lat­est re­quest is sep­a­rate from the 70 blank sub­poe­nas he sought in May.
