BREAKING: Robert Mueller Issues Surprise Thursday Grand Jury Subpoena – Get Ready


As the Senate Judiciary Committee grills FBI Director Christopher Wray and deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein over the Clinton email investigation, which somehow turned into an indictment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Trump campaign collusion with Russian government officials, another surprise subpoena was handed down.

Former informal Trump campaign adviser and self-styled “dirty trickster” Roger Stone aide Andrew Miller was issued a subpoena to appear before a grand jury in the Mueller probe. Miller is not a name that has been mentioned previously in regards to the investigation, but Stone certainly has.

The New York Times reports that:

‘Mr. Miller, a registered Libertarian, worked briefly for Mr. Stone around the Republican convention in 2016, helping to arrange media interviews and conducting other tasks, according to a person close to Mr. Stone.’

For anyone unfamiliar with Stone, he is a key piece of the Russian collusion investigation. In fact, during the 2016 campaigns, he seemed to always know things were going to happen before they did, such as the intended release of the illegally hacked emails from the DNC.

‘Mr. Stone has become a focal point for Mr. Mueller’s investigators in the inquiry into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia’s election interference. During the 2016 campaign, Mr. Stone publicly foreshadowed the released by WikiLeaks of information damaging to the Hillary Clinton campaign.’

Stone previously said that he believed the only reason he personally had not been subpoenaed by Mueller is he has become a target in the investigation, and for good reason. Most recently, it was discovered that Stone met with a Russian intermediary who promised dirt on Clinton during the campaigns. As the New York Mmagazine points out:

‘The story confirms Stone’s functionally active status as a surrogate for the Trump campaign. Stone officially left his role in August 2015. But he continued to speak regularly with Trump, while supporting him fervently. There is abundant evidence that Stone communicated privately with WikiLeaks during the campaign.’

While Trump’s longtime friend and former adviser insists that no deal was actually made, it’s difficult to believe anything he says. He was already caught lying to Congress and continued to lie about the meeting mentioned above when he said “I’ve never been to Russia. I didn’t talk to anybody who was identifiably Russian during the two-year run-up to this campaign.” Stone later said that he had forgotten the meeting since 2016 was “a busy year.”

Stone was also discovered to have had secret exchanges with both Wikileaks, who published the hacked emails, and Guccifer 2.0, who is responsible for the illegal hacking. Stone’s connections and prior knowledge of the release of those emails makes it seems pretty clear that someone connected to the Trump campaign was certainly colluding with Russia. The question is whether or not Trump knew about it.

What is the most important takeaway from all of this is that Trump’s campaign officials and associates have repeatedly lied about being in contact with Russian and Kremlin-linked operatives. Trump continues to insist that no evidence has yet been found in the Mueller investigation regarding collusion, but if that’s true, why has Stone, Donald Trump, Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, Rick Gates, former national security advisor Michael Flynn, George Papadapolous, and even Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied about those contacts with Russian operatives?
