Mueller's leaked 'hit list' may indicate he's treating Trump's team like a 'criminal enterprise'

A Grand Jury subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller's team reportedly targets the majority of Donald Trump's senior campaign team, including the president, and may indicate criminal wrongdoing within his innermost circle.

The subpoena, seen by and labelled a "hit list" by Axios, asks for all texts, letters, handwritten notes, or communications of any kind starting from November 1, 2015, between one unnamed witness and the following people:

Carter Page, a former investment banker and campaign foreign policy adviser.
Corey Lewandowski, a former Trump campaign manager.
Hope Hicks, Trump's longtime, now ex-communications director.
Keith Schiller, Trump's former bodyguard and confidante.
Michael Cohen, the longtime personal attorney for Trump.
Paul Manafort, Trump's already indicted former campaign chairman.
Rick Gates, the former deputy chairman of Donald Trump's presidential campaign who is now cooperating with Mueller.
Roger Stone, a former adviser to Trump who left the campaign before November 1, 2015, but has admitted to having contact with Wikileaks, the organization that leaked hacked emails from the Democratic National Convention.
Steve Bannon, former White House and Trump campaign strategist.
And, finally, Donald J. Trump, the man himself, makes the list.
Importantly, the subpoena's calls for communications that began after November 1, 2015, nearly five months after Trump announced his candidacy.

In response to the report, Ned Price, a former CIA official who advised Barack Obama and resigned from the agency rather than work for Trump's administration, tweeted that the subpeona indicated "Mueller is treating it like a criminal enterprise."

1. "between one unnamed witness"

My guesses are
Flynn or Rudy G or Eric Prince or the Mercers


"Mueller is treating it like a criminal enterprise."

2. I'm thinking it may be Sam Nunberg

He seems to covet the attention and has been a regular on Ari's show on MSNBC.

The question is, why?

19. Yes. If it's from Mueller, it's intentional.

No real "leaks" from his investigation, only releases of information.

11. Trump most likely is the leaker here

He knows he has been subpoenaed and can't stop complaining about it to others in private. He's off on a Twitter rant this morning to deflect. He has a big mouth and feels like he is under attack. In his view, leaking this is a way to hopefully undermine the investigation.

Chris Christie.

But not sure how much interaction he would have had with some of these people.

13. What keeps them

…from shredding as many records as they possibly can starting right now if not months ago?

Even if a copy of a shredded document shows up in some one else's record, why can't the shredder claim " I lost
it. Never saw it. Just don't know what happened to that document."

But meantime, there may be key material that never turns up again—the shredding can eliminate many important things—no?

15. No.

Shredding is so passé in this electronic age. email is forever. Mueller's no fool; he doesn't think any members of the enterprise (except those already in his steely cold grasp) will give up the goods. The subpoena will be presented to the keepers of the servers, such as GSA, and whatever internet providers these crooks were using in their pre-Government days.

16. Yes, and yet...

…..he has subpoenaed hand written material too. Just like Osama Bin Laden and now ISIS, as I understand it, used and uses land couriers for their most sensitive communications. Not everyone on Mueller's list is a complete idiot—like Roger Stone—they'd know that the Cloud or whatever is forever.

Putin and various players must be busily having their electronic whizzes destroy electronic records as much as possible. It will be techie vs. techie, I guess.

So no surprise they would ask. But if it's a witness planning to cooperate, he will turn it over.
