Mueller asked for blank subpoenas, with the names to be filled in later, Bloomberg reported.

Manafort is facing numerous charges of bank fraud and money laundering. He faces 18 criminal charges in Virginia federal court and five in Washington.

He is one of four former Trump associates to face charges or plead guilty thus far in Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
