Robert Mueller impanels grand jury in Russian meddling investigation: Report

Robert Mueller, the special counsel in the Russia probe, has impaneled a grand jury to look into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, according to a report.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that the grand jury has begun its work in Washington in recent weeks.

News that Mueller has impaneled a grand jury signals that the Justice Department’s investigation into Russian meddling and ties between the Trump campaign and Russian officials is ramping up, and that Mueller could be close to subpoenaing witnesses for documents or testimony.

According to Reuters, grand jury subpoenas have been issued related to a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner, Trump’s adviser and son-in-law. The three met with a Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, after Trump Jr. was promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

    LOL…, Mueller, in the pockets of Omuslim, and Killary. What a joke!

    Inside of drawing the swamp the swamp is growing faster than Trump can drain it

    Would it not be ironic if this Grand Jury returns indictments against Hillary and her connections with the Russians? They are more easily traced than these shadowy innuendoes, with little or no proof, being tossed about by the media and the democrats(redundant). Would good old Chuckie and Nanny be as fierce in going after Hillary and minions if they get charged? What about Lynch and Comey, and their interference with the e-mail investigation? If they get caught up in this, will the Democrats be all for charging them?

    Robert Mueller is the attack dog of the Commucrats who have not accepted the fact that Hillary Clinton lost in a huge way! Mueller is not an honorable man. The fact that there are so many reasons for him to recuse himself and he hasn’t proves that he should not be allowed to pursue this farce any further. If he continues with this sham he himself is guilty of breaking at least two federal statutes and should be prosecuted for such. To give a person with his obvious conflicts of interest the position of Special Prosecutor enables the Democrats to continue their persecution of President Trump. Do the Democrats think the American people are so stupid that they are unable to see exactly what trickery they are up to? BE ON NOTICE DEMOCRATS, WE AREN’T THAT DAMNED STUPID AND YOUR DAY IS COMING IN THE 2018 ELECTIONS!

      Funny that Trump was thinking of bringing him back as head of the FBI and that GW Bush would have put someone anti republican party into a position of power like that in the first place. It’s also interesting that a member of Trumps administration would appoint him. No Democrat had any power in his appointment but you claim he is one of them. The fact that he just impaneled a Grand Jury that puts the whole thing out of the public eye and away from the press is only going to be good for Trump as long as he did nothing wrong. The whole idea of getting honest answers I would think is a good thing and since you go to jail for lying to them should make people a little less likely to lie. Mueller just did Trump a big favor as long as he hasn’t been lying all this time.

    Donald Trump is only interested in the aggrandizement of Donald Trump, as witnessed by the “rally” over in West Virginia.

  • bobnstuff says:

    Now we get down to it. No more grandstanding. If Trump & Company did something illegal it will come out. No TV cameras or reporters. This is the best path for the truth. Trump & Company only needs to fear if they lied, get caught in a lie to a Grand Jury and you go to jail. If a crime has been committed we will know. Mueller has put together a good team and congress has his back. Let these people do their job and Trump can get down with the work of government.

  • Joseph R. Davis says:

    Alas, poor Donald. Figuratively speaking, caught with his hand in the Russian cookie jar. If The Donald is lucky, he’ll only be charged with past money laundering crimes, rather then treason for the Russian Connection.

      Facts to back up what you say?

      1. Joseph R. Davis says:

        Don’t you people watch the news? And kindly refrain from repeating this Trump nonsense about “fake news.” Grand Jury involvement is far beyond the “fake news” bull-(expletive deleted), that Trump is spewing in a effort to save his butt. He might as well start packing his bags, to leave the White House.

        1. gvette says:

          Can you name a crime? Still got your head up Barry’s ass, don’t you. Killary lost. Nothing changes that.

          1. Joseph R. Davis says:

            Treason. Malfeasance. Misfeasance. Misprision of a felony. And why do the denizens of the far right always talk about somebody’s a$$? Do all you people have an a$$ fetish?

          2. gvette says:

            That’s funny coming from you. I asked a question, and the only word that caught your eye, was ass.
            I guess I was right!

    2. Sick of Rino's says:

      This is more than a witch hunt, it is an attempted coup. The ones needing investigating are Comey, Mueller, Loretta Lynch, Hillary, Obama, et al. The Democrats have brought this country to its knees and crippled all forms of true justice.

    Do what you will but Congess if this showboating is for you better remember who put Trump in the Whitehouse and if he doesn’t do his job then we will fire him in 4 years and you in a shorter period of time
