Mueller's subpoena of Trump campaign materials is a nothing burger

The special counsel, who is now investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign, requested Russia-related documents from more than a dozen top officials in mid-October.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team issued the subpoena last month for documents containing specified Russian keywords from more than a dozen officials, according to the report in the Wall Street Journal.

The subpoena, issued in mid-October, reportedly requested documents and emails with keywords related to Russian Federation but didn't compel any officials to testify before Mueller's grand jury, an unnamed source told the Journal. It marks the first time the Trump campaign has been ordered to turn information over to the special counsel.

The campaign has reportedly been submitting documents in response to the subpoena on an "ongoing" basis. Some of the missing emails regarded the Kremlin-connected shadow group WikiLeaks.

The letter said that "other parties" had given the committee documents concerning a "Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite" that Kushner also forwarded, but that Kushner hadn't sent a copy to the committee. According to the Journal, the request "caught the campaign by surprise", as officials had been voluntarily requiring with Mueller's team. Around the same time, it was also revealed that former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos had pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his Russian Federation contacts, reportedly out of loyalty to the President.

The subpoena against the campaign would have come prior to the special counsel's charges against former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates for money laundering, conspiracy, and failure to register as a foreign agent, which were filed October 30.
