The Trump campaign was dirty right from day one: asking Putin for favors, setting up backdoor connections to Russia, and begging for dirt on Hillary Clinton. Usually when you run a corrupt political campaign, you’re in danger of getting caught, and Robert Mueller wants to get to the bottom of a few things. Today MSNBC reported that Mueller is going to subpoena Randy Credico, who is the associate of Trump advisor Roger Stone. Credico was Stone’s alleged connection to Wikileaks during the 2016 election.
Ari Melber, host of MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber, said that Mueller was going to force a meeting with Credico through the use of a subpoena. Melber reported that a source close to Mueller’s investigation had confirmed that the subpoena would be issued. Mueller had previously requested an interview with Credico, but Credico refused to meet with him.
Credico was a guest on The Beat yesterday and he told Melber that:
‘They didn’t call me in, they showed up and they asked me to come in and do an in-person voluntary interview. They asked me if I would like to do — we set up a conversation with somebody from the Mueller team and they asked my lawyer if I would like to sit down and do a voluntary interview, and I said no.’

Allegedly, Stone asked Credico to get him in touch with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in an attempt to find some dirt on Hillary Clinton. Trump’s whole campaign operation sounds like it was just one great big crime family. It seems none of them minded playing dirty or breaking the law. Just one day prior to the news about Stone, the high profile, extremist Republican Representative Devin Nunes was caught on tape telling people that receiving stolen emails is a crime. Apparently the Trump campaign didn’t care if it was illegal or not.
