March 5 (UPI) -- A grand jury for special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia sent subpoenas last month seeking a slew of documents related to communications with a number of President Donald Trump's closest advisers.
The subpoena seeks emails, text messages, work documents, handwritten notes and telephone logs the witnesses sent to and received from 10 individuals, dating back to Nov. 1, 2015. That date is less than five months after Trump announced his presidential campaign.
The individuals listed in the subpoena include:
-- Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist and chief executive of the Trump campaign
-- Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney
-- Rick Gates, former Trump campaign aide who pleaded guilty in February to Mueller charges of lying to the FBI and defrauding the government
-- Hope Hicks, White House communications director who announced her resignation last week
-- Corey Lewandowski, former Trump campaign manager
-- Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign manager who pleaded not guilty to charges of lying to the FBI and money laundering, among a number of other charges
-- Keith Schiller, a former Trump bodyguard
-- and President Donald Trump.
Nunberg said he doesn't plan to comply with the subpoena to supply documents or appear before the grand jury on Friday. Nunberg said he intended to tear up a copy of the document on Bloomberg TV.
"Let him arrest me," he told The Post. "Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in on Friday."
He said he thinks investigators want him to implicate Stone in WikiLeaks' release of Democrats' emails.
Nunberg told MSNBC the investigation was a "witch hunt," though he thinks Trump "may have done something during the election. But I don't know that for sure."
"The Russians and Trump did not collude," he added. "Putin is too smart to collude with Donald Trump."
Mueller's team is investigating whether the Russian government interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, whether Trump's campaign colluded with that alleged effort and whether Trump attempted to object those investigations by firing former FBI Director James Comey last May.
Mueller has made a number of indictments as part of the investigation and gotten guilty pleas from Gates, former national security adviser Michael Flynn (lying to the FBI), New York-based Dutch lawyer Alex Van Der Zwaan (lying to the FBI about Manafort-Ukraine links) and Richard Pinedo (identify fraud linked to Russian efforts).
