Mueller Trump Russian probe Update 11/16/17…Subpoena’s for Trump campaign people’s Russian contacts…

Trump Campaign staff had been turning over doucuments voluntarily ….

But in the media reporting about people talking to Congress some reporters have begun to say that some campaign staff people were NOT turning over ALL of their information to authorities….

They are now being ordered to do so….

Mr. Mueller and congressional committees are investigating whether Trump associates colluded with Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election. Mr. Trump has denied collusion by him or his campaign, and Moscow has denied meddling in the election.

Separately, the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday said senior White House official Jared Kushner hadn’t turned over all the documents it has requested and asked his lawyer to be more forthcoming.

The person said the request appeared to be “an effort to be thorough” and not miss any records as the office obtains the communications of campaign members through other methods.

    Mueller’s investigators are also still actively mapping out all the attempts by Russian nationals and people with ties to Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s government to connect with and possibly infiltrate the Trump campaign. So far, at least nine people in Trump’s orbit had contact with Russians during the campaign or the transition to the White House, according to Mueller’s charging documents and interviews and records obtained by The Washington Post.

    Witnesses questioned by Mueller’s team warn that investigators are asking about other foreign contacts and meetings that have not yet become public, and to expect a series of new revelations.
