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.

Democratic pressure on intel agencies exposed a motherlode of information on foreign meddling helping Trump: report

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico reported that congressional Democrats believe their pressure campaign on the intelligence community was crucial to exposing Russia's newest plot to interfere with U.S. elections on behalf of President Donald Trump.

"For weeks, top Democratic lawmakers in the House and Senate have been blaring warnings and demanding briefings and public disclosures from the intelligence community, shrugging off Republican charges that they’re politicizing intelligence," reported Andrew Desiderio and Kyle Cheney. "And Democrats can now point to evidence that their pressure campaign might be working. On Friday, the Trump administration’s counterintelligence chief publicly confirmed that Russia is attempting to harm Joe Biden’s candidacy in 2020. The official, William Evanina, even singled out a pro-Russia Ukrainian, Andrii Derkach, as a key participant in the Kremlin’s new effort."
