WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller has issued two subpoenas to a social media expert who worked for longtime Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone during the 2016 presidential election campaign.
The subpoenas were delivered late last week to lawyers representing Jason Sullivan, a social media and Twitter specialist Stone hired to work for an independent political action committee he set up to support Trump, Knut Johnson, a lawyer for Sullivan, told Reuters on Tuesday.
The subpoenas suggest that Mueller, who is probing Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, is focusing in part on Stone and whether he might have had advance knowledge of material allegedly hacked by Russian intelligence and sent to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who published it.
Stone appeared before the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee last September and denied allegations of collusion between the president's associates and Russia during the election. "I am aware of no evidence whatsoever of collusion by the Russian state or anyone in the Trump campaign," Stone told reporters at the time.
According to sources familiar with the ongoing investigation, Mueller also has been probing whether anyone associated with the Trump campaign may have helped Assange or the Russians time or target the release of hacked emails and other social media promoting Trump or critical of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

It’s The Daily Democrat Coup (TM)
Oh, and Mueller is a “Republican” - like James Comey and John McCain, that is.
Why doesn’t everyone just take the Fifth and refuse to talk about it?
Meddling? I thought he was investigating collusion. I guess they're playing the global warming is now climate change game with collusion and meddling.
And still another nothingburger.
At what point are the courts going to hand Mueller his head?
WTF am I reading? They sent out a mass pro Trump tweet? This gets you in front of a grand jury? What country am I in?
Bobby is really edgy about his special anniversary tomorrow, isnt he?
Notice how all these subpoenas are not seeking evidence to determine who committed a known crime. These are trying to find a crime in and of itself. It’s a classic fishing expedition.
“You show me the man, I’ll find you the crime.” —Robert Mueller
To hell with Drudge.
I think it’s also about trying to determine how hiLIARy could lose an election that was rigged in her favor. They get all the inside information on how Trump ran his campaign so they can be better prepared for the next election.
I thought everyone knew it was Seth Rich that leaked to Assange that is why Hillary had him Clintonized.
The Republicans and Democrats support all of this. Mueller wouldn’t be allowed to continue this witch hunt if they didn’t support him.
“Why doesnt everyone just take the Fifth and refuse to talk about it?”
I’d take the fifth if that prick Mueller asked me what time it was.
The special counsels reason for being is 3 fold:
1) Embroil the Trump administration with indictments-scandals with the ultimate goal of toppling(impeachment-resignation)
2) Use the SC to bury the mountain of high crime evidence against Hillary & the Omuslim regime.
3) Show the people what happens if you want to go to work for the Trump administration...Youll be crucified by the propaganda press and indicted by a soviet-style special counsel. Your house raided in the dark of the night by the goose-steppers of the FBI.

Nioe that we have a high-ranking official in our country channeling Stalin's henchman Lavrenti Beria.
So when does he subpoena Melania?
Hasn’t the world had it with this deranged, vengeful Captain Ahab on his hunt for the white whale?
