BREAKING: Mueller Warns He May Subpoena President Trump
Mueller warns he may subpoena President Trump.
The Washington Post is reporting Mueller raised the prospect of presidential subpoena in a recent meeting with Trump’s legal team.
In a tense meeting in early March with the special counsel, President Trump’s lawyers insisted he had no obligation to talk with federal investigators probing Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.
But special counsel Robert S. Mueller III responded that he had another option if Trump declined: He could issue a subpoena for the president to appear before a grand jury, according to four people familiar with the encounter.
Mueller’s warning — the first time he is known to have mentioned a possible subpoena to Trump’s legal team — spurred a sharp retort from John Dowd, then the president’s lead lawyer.
“This isn’t some game,” Dowd said, according to two people with knowledge of his comments. “You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States.”
The flare-up set in motion weeks of turmoil among Trump’s attorneys as they debated how to deal with the special counsel’s request for an interview, a dispute that ultimately led to Dowd’s resignation.
A list of questions Mueller sent Trump’s legal team leaked earlier to The New York Times.
Mueller has over 40 questions for Trump that have nothing to do with Russia collusion.
And the questions go on and on about Trump’s transition and early months of his presidency.

This is a total witch hunt. There is no underlying crime to even justify a special counsel investigation.
Where the hell is AG Sessions??
Where are the Republicans??
