Special counsel send out dozens of subpoenas Manafort's former attorney and spokesman

(CNN) Special Counsel Robert Mueller has issued subpoenas to a former lawyer for Paul Manafort and to Manafort's current spokesman, an aggressive tactic that suggests an effort to add pressure on the former Trump campaign chairman.

The subpoenas seeking documents and testimony were sent to Melissa Laurenza, an attorney with the Akin Gump law firm who until recently represented Manafort, and to Jason Maloni, who is Manafort's spokesman, according to people familiar with the matter.

Manafort is under investigation for possible tax and financial crimes, according to US officials briefed on the investigation. The allegations under investigation largely center on Manafort's work for the former ruling party in Ukraine, which was ousted amid street protests over its pro-Russian policies.


It's unclear what specific information the Mueller investigators believe Laurenza and Maloni may have. But issuing subpoenas to a lawyer of someone under investigation is unusual, in part because it raises potential attorney-client privilege issues that prosecutors tend to try to avoid. Maloni, as a public relations representative, doesn't have the same attorney-client privilege protections.

Subpoenas have not been sent to WilmerHale, Manafort's other most recent lawyers. WilmerHale is the law firm where Mueller worked before being appointed special counsel.

Manafort has not been accused of any wrongdoing.

Maloni declined to comment. A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment. Laurenza referred questions to a spokesman who didn't immediately comment.

The subpoenas are among dozens that the Mueller investigative team has sent out in recent months since taking over the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The Manafort investigation has been ongoing for years and as recently as last summer appeared to be stagnated. At the time, Justice Department officials had come to believe there wasn't enough evidence to pursue charges, as CNN has previously reported.

The probe has taken on new life since the beginning of this year, and appears to be taking an aggressive turn under the Mueller investigators.

Andrew Weissmann, who is one of the senior lawyers overseeing the investigation, is known for aggressive tactics. Last month, the Mueller team ordered a dawn raid on Manafort's home in Washington's Virginia suburbs, as Manafort slept in his bedroom. The financial documents retrieved were largely ones Manafort had already turned over to congressional investigators.

Manafort is now represented by Kevin Downing, a Washington lawyer and former Justice Department prosecutor who specializes in tax issues.

This is a bit of good news for Trump. Go thru motions of an investigation, conclude he did nothing, then all cleared. Plus it makes the Dems look stupid in the eyes of Independent voters for pushing the farce

What's the hurry? Let the GOP and trump twist in the wind. I'd like indictment to come down 2 weeks before the 2018 midterms.

By then the GOP is totally complicit. In the end it will be the GOP that starts the proceedings.

That's good the noose is tighten by the hour. We are just now catching up to what Mueller was doing in June. What he's done since has to be impressive.

You have these incredible delusional fantasies all worked out in that crazy brain of yours right down to the exact time and exact nature of how it's going to happen.

You know it's so nice to relax and just watch this unravel at this point. You guys sleep tight, maybe I'm just kidding.

Or maybe I'm soaking in the schadenfreude.

Mercury, which has prominent Republicans among its senior partners, had worked on the Ukraine lobbying project with the Podesta group, led by Anthony Podesta, brother of John Podesta, who led Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Podesta principal Mark Tavlarides declined Friday evening to comment on whether his firm had been contacted by Mueller’s team.

The firms involved with the Ukraine project did not initially register as foreign agents at the time, citing legal analyses that indicated they were not required to do so because they were working for a nonprofit and not a foreign political party or government. But in recent months, the Podesta Group and Mercury have filed retroactively, acknowledging that the Ukrainian political party benefited from their efforts.
Yup them shoes be a dropping!

The Hillary-Ukraine collusion is already known, but Americans need to hear more about it. We had a foreign govt trying to interfere with our elections, and that cannot stand

No one believes anything you post except your posse of lwnj. We use you as entertainment, comedy in a freak show sort of way.

if an indictment were to come down two weeks before the midterm election and that means special Counsel had already recommended action to Congress. the special counsel just makes a recommendation, ultimately it's Congress that decides to act. a congress's composition that won't be changed until potentially after the 2018 midterm election. so what you're hoping for probably isn't going to happen. further an indictment of Mana fort doesn't impeach Donald Trump.
