After the GOP ridiculed Special Counsel Robert Mueller — ordering him to “wrap up” the Russian probe investigation — Mueller made them eat their words by issuing a new set of subpoenas.
This time, Mueller has issued two subpoenas to a social media expert who worked for longtime Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone during the 2016 presidential election campaign. The subpoenas were delivered late last week to lawyers representing Jason Sullivan, a social media and Twitter specialist Stone hired to work for an independent political action committee he set up to support Trump, Knut Johnson, a lawyer for Sullivan, told Reuters.
Mueller’s subpoenas draw focus on whether Stone had advance knowledge of material allegedly hacked by Russian intelligence and sent to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
Moreover, Sullivan said that he helped Stone and the Trump campaign create Twitter “swarms” that would boost social media support for the candidate. One strategy document that Sullivan prepared referenced “The Age of Weaponized Social Media.”
Sullivan is expected to appear before a grand jury this Friday and is required to turn over documents and electronic information.
Considering Stone has been melting down on social media for quite some time, knowing that Mueller is this close to nailing him may send him over the edge. Nonetheless, Republicans are getting what they deserve: Mueller is wrapping up this case, gathering more and more concrete evidence to send President Donald Trump and his team of crooks behind bars.
