Special counsel Robert Mueller is requesting 70 blank subpoenas ahead of the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Mueller is making the request for the subpoenas in the Alexandria, Va., court where Manafort is facing trial on several charges, including bank fraud.

A spokesman for the special counsel confirmed to The Hill that the filing is an additional set of requests, after prosecutors previously requested 35 sets of blank subpoenas for the trial.


Manafort is facing several charges of bank fraud and money laundering, including 18 criminal charges in Virginia federal court. He is also facing five charges in D.C.

Manafort has pleaded not guilty to the charges. The trial is set to begin July 10.
