Mueller Is Not Done Yet, Doles Out An Unexpected Subpoena

Published

The investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into President Donald Trump, his Organization, his White House, his administration, his close circle and his White House seemed  like it was going on for many lifetimes. It certainly feels like much longer than two years ago that the Justice Department (specifically, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein) found itself forced to commission the former Director of the FBI to set up a probe to investigate Trump.

The original claims that then Republican candidate Donald Trump colluded with  Russian state actors in order to steal the result of the election and the White House from rival Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, on top of obstruction of justice afterwards in a desperate attempt to cover it up, seemed plausible given the evidence. However, we now know the outcome of Mueller’s report and it was not in our favor.

Don’t give up hope just yet, though – the authority of the right wing establishment is powerful but finite, and Robert Mueller is doing everything he can to fight it to the last. Even though the probe is over, he just shocked everyone by sending a totally unexpected subpoena out to an unknown, foreign owned company, which is apparently tied to the Trump-Russia collusion investigation. And what’s more, the Supreme Court has just smacked down a bid by the mystery company to resist the subpoena:

In its order denying the mystery corporation’s opinion, the Supreme Court also allowed for certain briefings in the highly secretive case to be filed under seal. The company has lost its challenge multiple times at the lower courts. It is facing steep fines — $50,000 a day — for continuing to resist the request that it produce certain documents.

The Supreme Court previously declined to halt the lower court’s order imposing the fines. The company has argued its compliance with the grand jury subpoena would violate the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act. Lower courts have ruled that even if the law provided the corporation immunity, the subpoena matter fit within an exception in the law for commercial activities.

This is incredible. Mueller is a former Head of the FBI, so he knows exactly how this kind of thing works. He has lulled the Trump supporters into a sense of full security by allowing Barr to release his very friendly statement, but is now pursuing his own investigations on the side in order to bring the real truth to light. It is amazing to see, and it means that there is still some hope for American democracy to be restored.
