    The request comes roughly a month after Mueller filed a request for 150 blank subpoenas.

So there are now potentially 250 people who have to show up for the Manafort trial? Is that an unusually high amount?

Former federal prosecutor Ken Whit said that the initial 250 was not at all unusual in a complex case dealing with financial crimes. Each movement of money will generate multiple suppoenas from the different institutions involved. He said that it might be a little bit on the low side considering all the charges.
