Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed a social media specialist who previously worked for Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone, according to a report.
A lawyer for social media and Twitter expert Jason Sullivan told Reuters that two subpoenas were delivered last week to Sullivan’s lawyers.
The report says the subpoenas seem to indicate that Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election is partly focusing on Stone and his communications with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
Stone has made contradicting statements about whether he knew in advance that WikiLeaks was going to publish a trove of hacked Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails.
Sources close to the Mueller probe told Reuters that Mueller is investigating whether Trump campaign associates helped WikiLeaks time the release of the DNC emails.
Mueller has subpoenaed Sullivan to appear before a grand jury on May 18 and to turn over documents and electronic information.
