Sam Nunberg claims he got one of the subpoenas.

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics...-doing/554906/

He seems pretty pissed about it...

He went on TV and said he wouldn't comply.

Im not going to cooperate! Why do I have to spend 80 hours going over my emails that Ive had with Steve Bannon and with Roger Stone? Nunberg asked NBC News reporter Katy Tur on Monday afternoon. Why does Bob Mueller need to see my emails when I send Roger and Steve clips and we talk about how much we hate people?

The fact she admitted to lying shows that she is beginning to understand the gravity of this situation and is throwing herself onto the mercy of the "court". Since she was in Trumps inner circle, she knows all the dirt.
Um...greed...?,

Nine individual under court order to comply are:

Hope Hicks
Rick Gates
Paul Manafort
Carter Page
Michael Cohen
Roger Stone
Corey Lewandowski
Steve Bannon
Wow. Nine lines in the water. Now that's a major fishing expedition!

Tell me... does increasing the number of fishing lines, improve the chances of finding "collusion" when there isn't any?

Or, conversely, it might improve the chances of finding collusion where it does exist.

See, it works both ways !

You dont know that.

Nobody knows what Mueller has...yet.

On Feb 23 Rick Gates agreed to co-operate with Mueller. A week later these subpoenas were issued. Coincidence?

Schiller is the one that delivered Comey's termination letter version #2 and then curiously promptly resigned.

Also curious is that Schiller just received $75,000 to check security for 2020 convention sites. Hmm.? Sounds like a plum job to me.
It's no surprise Schiller quit. It's one thing to be a professional bodyguard for a private individual, but another for a President.

When Trump was first elected, he said he planned to continue to use his private security instead of the Secret Service. But by law, like it or not, The Secret Service has the job of protecting the President. Period. If they need help, they call in the Marines.

So Trump was soon disavowed of that notion, and it must have left Schiller in a quandry; was he going to stay as just another footman for his boss, or was he going to leave and find another job doing what he does best?

If I was Schiller- making very good money as a bodyguard- I know what I would do. I would try the new, lesser job out to see if I could put up with it, and if I couldn't, I would bail out ASAP.

Having Presidential security in my resume would be a good deal. I could expect an even better security job to come from that.

It's no surprise Mueller subpoenaed him. Schiller may know nothing about what happened behind closed doors, but he always knew who was in the room, where the room was, and when the meeting was.

So it's not odd at all. But it doesn't necessarily indict Trump in anything, as Schiller may not be able to connect the dots.

It's important to remember that Mueller is getting to the bottom of Russian interference in the 2016 election. He is not on a Trump hunt, but if Trump is found to be in cahoots, then Mueller will snag him. If only some of Trump's underlings and associates were involved without Trump's knowledge, then they will be the ones Mueller snags.

One thing is for sure. Mueller will get to the bottom of it. That's what he has done all his life.
