Mueller is nearing the end of his 12 years as head of the law enforcement agency that is conducting high-profile investigations of the Boston Marathon bombings, the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, and leaks of classified government information.

Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said when it comes to national security leaks, it's important to balance the need to protect secrecy with the need to let the news media do their job. (AP Photo/J.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is asking a federal court in Virginia for 100 more blank subpoenas in the case against Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager.

The request came in a filing Wednesday that was posted by The Hill.

The subpoenas require the recipient to testify in the U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia, on July 25, when Manafort’s trial on bank and fraud charges is set to begin. No further information was provided in the filing.

In May, court documents showed Mueller had filed for 70 blank subpoenas. And the special counsel asked for 150 blank subpoenas in June, the Washington Examiner reported.

The latest request comes amid an effort by Manafort’s defense team to delay the trial and move it from Alexandria to Roanoke, Virginia.

The judge overseeing the Alexandria case, T.S. Ellis, declined a request Wednesday from Manafort to stay at the regional jail where he has reportedly being treated like a VIP,  and ordered him to be moved to behind bars in Alexandria.

    • Jerry – you are right this is what the dem libs want. Trump needs to declare Marshall Law while he is in power and begin signing up the 60 million deplorable like us to stop the drive them out of this country ans
      D save the USA and it’s Constitution. They want to destroy this country and unless they are stopped physically they will keep going just like Isis.

  1. Why don’t they just find buy a girl from when he was in the 5th grade like they usually do. Surely they can find something from his grade school days. The teachers would all be dead by now

  2. This scumbag needs to go. They are in the process of fabricating something and he needs to be run out of town before we run him out of town. This is a total scam and we can’t allow the FBI and the DOJ to get away with whatever they are planning!! They are all lying and congress just needs to hold them all in contempt and put them behind bars for a very LONG time.

  3. Over one hundred BLANK subpoenas? Sounds more like fishing with dynamite than having a
    clue as to what they are looking for with any direction at all. Just throw crap at the wall and
    hope that something might possible stick for an instance. This is corruption and desperation by
    Muller trying to save his fake investigation and also the desperation of the Socialist Democrat, FBI
    and DOJ try and save their jobs in desperation.

  4. I thought this would stop when the dossier was proven FAKE but evidently they are still on the witch hunt! They’ve found plenty of evidence against democrats but they are still hunting for republican collusion! What a waste of time and money! Mueller is taking the country for more than all the senate and House gets!!

  5. MULLER HAS RUN OUT OF TIME ON THE ORGINAL CASE AND CAN’T PROVE ANYTHING .COLOSE THE CASE AND FIRE THE IDIOT.
    ALL HIS SECONDARY CASES SHOULD NOT BE EVEN BROUGHT TO COURT AS THEY WERE NOT PART OF THE ORGINAL CASE , THE SCOPE OF WHAT HE HAS DONE LEADS ME TO BELIEVE HE IS HUNTING AND NEEDS A HIGH PAYING JOB.
    HE IS GETTING RICH ON THIS. WHO EVER STARTED THIS SHOULD PAY THE BILL IF IT PROVES NOT TO BE.

  6. Mr. Mueller will keep this going until the 2020 elections if possible, or until the dummycrats are back in power, Of course if the American people can keep applying pressure to the good old boy network in Washington we still might be ok. Make sure Mr. Trump or Mr. Pence are in office until 2028.

  7. How long is this witch hunter going to be allowed to get by with his extremely questionable actions. He has tried EVERYTHING to stack the deck against Pres Trymo and still NO COLLUSION EXCEPT ON PART OF HRC, DNC & those yelling the loudest that Pres Trump colluded.
    I’m sure he doesn’t care but Mueller has blood on his hands & will continue to be saturated with more blood on his hands when all HELL breaks loose from this apparent miscarriage of Justice!

  8. Mr. Mueller is playing Cardinal Richelieu, but with a lot more assassins who have his carte blanche. Let us all his plotting will come to naught. no matter

  9. What is with this Parasite? Asking for more time? Asking for more $$$$$ ? He’s milking the system for all he can, FIRE his AZZ, Now, what a waste of time and $$$$$ this jerk has been.

  10. Before he gets anymore subpoenas we should get some substance from his supposed investigation. As far as I have seen it is all a scam to defraud the taxpayer out of millions of dollars for a bogus Democratic accusation. I think the Democratic Party should repay every penny they have caused the taxpayer to spend for NOTHING!

    • there just getting more money for the democrats to run against the American party of choice, they are losing money from the baby killing machine and now this pos is asking for 150 more, to check on the paper boy who pres trump didn’t give a tip to, who was a russian agent. enough is enough. show us what you have now or get the fuck off our dime you pos.

    • This scum bucket is being paid with our money and he needs to start answering to us!!! How can we intercede and get this witch hunt ended? I say we sue Mueller for wasting taxpayers dollars and send him packing!

  11. No subpoenas until Lisa Page and lover boy answer their subpoenas and then give honest answers to all questions without using the fifth or “it is part of an ongoing investigation.”

  12. “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

  13. A subpoena should be asked in a specific manner on a specific person because you have evidence against them or feel they have evidence against a person you are already holding an investigation upon. To just be asking for multiple blank subpoena’s means he doesn’t have the evidence he needs and is just doing a broad look and see attempt. This should not be allowed in my personal opinion. What is his next attempt subpoena’s all on Republicans in THE REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

  14. Trumps own fault. He has the right to demand the DOJ and FBI release those documents Nunez has been seeking for months. Sessions has also been keeping the documents from being released. Sessions is a plant from day one of The Deep State. Trump should have seen thru Sessions lies and fired him months ago. Trump should get Guiliani and Seculow to get together with the DOJ and FBI lawyers and go over all the documents in private. If any names need to be redacted, do it and Trump should then declassify them and turn them over to Nunez. Most of the problem now is Trumps own fault. He shouldn’t give a damn what the Democrats will say, just do it.

  15. I have been advocating for Sessions to be fired for months. He was a plant for the Deep State from day one. Sessions recusal was preplanned by The Deep State before Trump even got elected. That is why he wanted to be AG so bad from day one. He recuses, Rosenstein takes over(as planned) and appoints Mueller. Mueller appoints all Democrats and especially the Pit Bull Enron liar. Sessions has been in on it from the beginning. If Trump wants to really Drain the Swamp, he needs Gregg Jarrett as AG and Rudy as FBI director. They both drive around with big pumps in the trunk of their cars and they will DRAIN THE SWAMP like quickly.
