Mueller Has Impaneled Grand Jury for Trump Investigation

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in Washington to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections, a sign that his inquiry is growing in intensity and entering a new phase, according to people familiar with the matter.

The grand jury, which began its work in recent weeks, signals that Mr. Mueller’s inquiry will likely continue for months. Mr. Mueller is investigating Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 election and whether President Donald Trump’s campaign or associates colluded with the Kremlin as part of that effort.

Grand juries are powerful investigative tools that allow prosecutors to subpoena documents, put witnesses under oath and seek indictments, if there is evidence of a crime. Legal experts said that the decision by Mr. Mueller to impanel a grand jury suggests he believes he will need to subpoena records and take testimony from witnesses.

“This is yet a further sign that there is a long-term, large-scale series of prosecutions being contemplated and being pursued by the special counsel,” said Stephen I. Vladeck, a law professor at the University of Texas. “If there was already a grand jury in Alexandria looking at Flynn, there would be no need to reinvent the wheel for the same guy. This suggests that the investigation is bigger and wider than Flynn, perhaps substantially so.”

Your hero's having another lousy week. Maybe you're the one who needs to keep hope alive.

Let's see.

He had to fire his comms director after only 10 days.

It was revealed that he personally dictated a dishonest statement to cover up his son's attempt to collude with the Russians.

A law suit alleges that he worked with Fox News to plant a dishonest and disgusting story about a murder victim in order to distract from the investigation into his campaign's suspected collusion with Russia.

A grand jury has been impaneled. Supeonas are going out.

Oh, and we now have a leaked transcript of the man-child begging the Mexican president to bail him out by not talking about the fact that Mexico isn't going to pay for the wall.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

As long as you have the pickle sniffers in Congress in charge, Trump has nothing to worry about.

Not so sure about that any more.

The Senate has grown increasingly fed up with the man-child's antics.

And that was before he blamed congress for the deteriorating relations with Russia.

As Pence made very clear when the Trump Jr meeting with the Russian lawyer came to light, he was not the VP candidate yet.

Although he can become one later if he tries to cover it up.

Cutting off option of replacing Sessions with someone willing to fire Mueller. Senate has gotten tired of this **** show.

To quote from Jurassic Park: Hold onto your butts!

What's so comical is how befuddled Trump is in the face of a real tough guy. Putin. Mueller. His bullying ain't working and that's about all he's got.

Well, I mean there may be nothing Trump has done wrong (legally). But I have a hard time believing Flynn and Manafort aren't going down.

I hope they come up with SOMETHING if only for the sake of so many with a YUUGE emotional investment.

Some of you will be jumping off buildings if it comes a cropper.

I've already seen enough. Trump using Russian released emails, his family meeting with Russians, Trump saying he fired Comey to stop the Russia investigation, his constant lying about it, his throwing his son under the bus.

I mean, how much corruption can you stand?

Top FBI officials could testify against Trump

 

"Shortly after the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller in May, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe told several of the highest-ranking managers of the bureau they should consider themselves possible witnesses in any investigation into whether President Donald Trump engaged in obstruction of justice, according to two senior federal law enforcement officials.

...Two senior federal law enforcement officials have told me that the new revelations illustrate why they believe the potential case against Trump is stronger than outsiders have thought.

“What you are going to have is the potential for a powerful obstruction case,” a senior law enforcement official said. “You are going to have the [former] FBI director testify, and then the acting director, the chief of staff to the FBI director, the FBI’s general counsel, and then others, one right after another. This has never been the word of Trump against what [James Comey] has had to say. This is more like the Federal Bureau of Investigation versus Donald Trump.”

It must be frustrating for people like you. We all said the guy was unfit. We said he was a liar. We said he was a moron. It's been an even bigger trainwreck than many of us could have imagined
