(National Sentinel) Russian Probe: Special counsel Robert Mueller has issued subpoenas to at least a dozen former Trump campaign officials, taking officials by surprise after the campaign said it would voluntarily cooperate with his probe, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday, citing a source.

The paper also called the subpoena the “first official order” for information from the campaign, which responded to the order on an “ongoing” basis, said the source.

No one who was subpoenaed was compelled to testify before a grand jury, the paper said.

“Sending a subpoena to an entity that says it has been cooperating with document requests isn’t unusual in cases in which prosecutors have some concern that their demands aren’t being met promptly or aren’t being entirely fulfilled,” the Journal wrote, citing former prosecutors.

Mueller has been tasked by the Department of Justice to look into alleged attempts by the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election, as well as possible collusion with President Donald J. Trump’s campaign.

Trump and many of his former campaign associates have regularly denied colluding with Russia to ‘steal’ the election from Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

And thus far, after more than a year’s worth of investigating by the former Obama administration and now Mueller, there has been no evidence found that has been publicly released.
