Week of Oct 28 – Nov 3


(Matt Kiser) #1

Last week in one sentence: A former federal prosecutor has suggested that Mueller may have already subpoenaed Trump to testify before the grand jury; the next person in line to supervise Mueller's investigation, Noel Francisco, was secretly given a waiver earlier this year allowing him to get involved despite clear conflicts of interest; Mueller subpoenaed multiple recordings of Roger Stone from 2016 in which he spoke of Wikileaks' plans to release info that would affect the presidential election and claimed to be in touch with Assange; Mueller has emails in which Roger Stone not only talked to the Trump campaign about Wikileaks during the 2016 election, but he sold himself as a conduit to Assange; Mueller is looking into whether Stone committed perjury before the House Intelligence Committee. Bannon was interviewed by Mueller about Stone; George Papadopoulos' wife has had her work visa "paused" after his own family reported her to ICE; the Kremlin announced Putin and Trump will meet for a "lengthy and substantive" session at G20 in Argentina November 30; the Senate intelligence committee has requested documents from the NRA related to its connections to Russia; a federal judge denied Trump's request to pause the emoluments lawsuit against him; and the RNC has spent more than $1.5 million at Trump properties during the 2018 election cycle.
