Special counsel Robert Mueller just filed a new 3,000-word sealed motion in secret subpoena case

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller just filed a new and extensive motion that is being kept under seal for the grand jury, according to Politico reporter Darren Samuelsohn.

The reporter posted a screen capture from the update showing Mueller made the November update as part of “Case Name: In re: Grand Jury Subpoena.” It explained, “The following transaction was entered on 11/20/2018 3:49:22 PM EST and filed on 11/20/2018.”

Politico has been following the secret subpoena as Mueller was locked in some kind of dispute with a witness, who is refusing to give up information requested by the investigators.

The information is all under seal, so it makes it difficult for the public to track any specific information other than, the filings and procedures entered into the public record. Because the witness is refusing to cooperate, a process of elimination can likely gather who the witness is not, but that still leaves a number of possibilities.

“This can get a step or two weirder than it already is,” said one attorney working for a senior staffer of President Donald Trump for the Russia inquiry. The lawyer recalled a case from a previous investigation where he couldn’t even get to see a judge’s opinion because it was under seal.

“It could be anyone who’s been subpoenaed by the special counsel for anything,” he added.
