The request was made in a filing on Wednesday. The subpoenas would require their recipients to testify in the U.S. District Court in Alexandria on July 25, when Manafort's trial in Virginia is set to begin.

No further information was provided in the filing, and a spokesman for the special counsel did not immediately respond to The Hill's request for comment.

3. 100? Seriously?

Can there possibly be that many people who would need to be called as witnesses? I would think that Mueller was trolling Manafort but surely his lawyers know that Mueller ain't going to call 100 witnesses. The only theory I have so far is that Mueller figures that if he serves 90-odd people with subpoenas, every one of them will be calling Manafort's lawyers to make sure they know exactly the facts to which testimony could be expected.

7. They may not even be for the Manafort trial. I am inclined to believe that Mueller is relying

on testimony he knows will occur during the trial to charge the next group on individuals. And 100 subpoenas? It's supposedly 2 copies for each individual so it's only 50 people and Manafort has years of illegal behavior under his belt.

6. I can hope that what's brewing is an indictment of Trump.

Add in Trump Jr., Ivanka, Jared, Devin Nunes, and Mitch McConnell and you have my dream team of prison orange.

13. Ha ha...


... that is about all they have as to the manifest destiny philosophy that pushed America to the west coast. But so many miss the point that manifest destiny ended when we settled Seattle. Constant exploitation, mostly of workers and citizens is what they replaced it with.
