Special counsel Robert Mueller has issued two grand jury subpoenas subpoenaed a social media specialist who previously worked for Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone, Reuters reported Wednesday.
Citing a lawyer for social media and Twitter expert Jason Sullivan, Reuters reported that two subpoenas were delivered last week to Sullivan’s lawyers.
The report says that the subpoena seems to indicate that Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 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 Emails.
Sullivan told Reuters that he worked as Stone’s chief strategist on the Trump campaign.
