Trump, Top Campaign Aides Targeted in Subpoena in Special Counsel Probe

President Trump

A grand jury subpoena reveals special counsel Robert Mueller is targeting President Trump and a majority of his campaign’s top officials, according to a new report.

The subpoena demands all emails, texts, letters, handwritten notes and all other forms of communication from Nov. 1, 2015, to present, according to news site Axios, which received copies of the grand jury records.

The subpoenas could reveal a trove of new information as Mueller’s team investigates whether the president and his campaign colluded with Russia to wage a propaganda war against his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

Trump responded this morning on Twitter, accusing the Obama administration of launching an investigation “with zero proof of wrongdoing,” which he said was “unprecedented” and “bigger than Watergate.”

The president, who repeatedly dismissed Russian interference in the election as a “hoax,” continues to call Muellers’ investigation a “witch hunt,” even though the special counsel team has filed more than 100 charges against 19 people and three companies. Three of Trump’s high-ranking campaign aides – Rick Gates, Mike Flynm and George Papadopoulos – have agreed to plead guilty and cooperate with Mueller’s team.

The longtime associates and former campaign officials who were targeted in the subpeona are Carter Page, Corey Lewandowski, Steve Bannon, Hope Hicks, Keith Schiller, Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and Roger Stone.

Ned Price, a former CIA official under Obama, tweeted that the subpoena indicated “Mueller is treating it like a criminal enterprise.”

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 Russia.

Since 13 Russians and three Russian groups were charged with conspiracy to defraud the U.S. less than a month ago, numerous news reports have indicated Trump also was under investigation for obstruction of justice.

And that’s not it.

Last week, sources close to the probe told several news agencies that Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner also are under investigation for various business dealings before and during the presidential transition.
