    Mueller Asks Judge To Issue 35 Subpoenas For Manafort Trial In Virginia

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller requested that a judge issue subpoenas for 35 witnesses to appear at the trial scheduled in federal court in Virginia for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a filing dated April 6.
    The filing does not say who Mueller intends to subpoena, just that he is requesting that they appear before U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis when the trial starts July 10.
    A separate case brought against Manafort by Mueller is scheduled for trial in Washington D.C. in September. Manafort is facing an assortment of charges of financial crimes, as well as failure to disclose foreign lobbying, stemming from work he did in Ukraine prior to the campaign. He has pleaded not guilty.
    So, Righties, a 35 subpoena nothingburger?

    Mueller has 22 indictments, 4 guilty pleas and another 35 subpoenas in the weeds and you want to say it is nothing, nothing, I tell you, nothing. The Trump Administration is pure as the driven snow, no guilt among the lot of them......keep saying that.....I was saying that about Clinton back in 1996, and it did not work out so well for me, either....

    Without knowing to whom they're directed (and what/who they're requesting appear at trial), it's hard to assign too much meaning one way or the other. "35" sounds like a lot and it's understandable one would assume that signifies many witnesses with damning information. But, given that the charges against Manafort are money laundering, fraud, tax evasion, I expect this trial will be document heavy. And in order to lay the proper foundation for documentary evidence like bank and business records, you have to jump through a lot of hoops, including calling custodians of records to testify to how they are made and kept, etc. This isn't to say there isn't plenty of damning evidence about Manafort and his shady practices (I'm sure there probably is.) Just a caution not to read too much into the number of subpoenas issued.

    What do you mean “this time”? Manafort already has enough charges to go to prison for a long time
