Mueller reportedly subpoenas one witness's communications with Trump, among others

  • Mueller's subpoena asks for emails, texts and handwritten notes linked to Trump and nine other people, Axios says.
  • Those targeted include outgoing White House communications director Hope Hicks and Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
  • Mueller requested for all communications from Nov. 1, 2015 — five months after Trump launched his presidential campaign.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has issued a subpoena for all communications from one witness regarding President Donald Trump and nine other people, Axios reported Sunday.

The grand jury subpoena — sent to an unnamed witness last month and seen by Axios — asked for emails, texts and handwritten notes linked to those people, according to the report.

Ten people are targeted in the subpoena, including the president and others who have worked with him. Among them are outgoing White House communications director Hope Hicks, Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen and the president's former strategist Steve Bannon, Axios said.

Mueller requested all communications since Nov. 1, 2015, according to the report. That's five months after Trump announced his presidential campaign.

The special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections has already delivered more than a dozen indictments and collected several guilty pleas.

Trump's lawyer Ty Cobb did not respond to Axios' request for comment, or to an email from CNBC.
