Grand Slam

US special counsel Robert Mueller is using a grand jury in Washington as part of an investigation into the coordination and collusion between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia.

Grand juries are used in only a handful of countries. In the US, they are normally made up of about 16 to 23 members of the public rather than the usual 12, hence “grand” jury.

The folks above are laughing at the trumpster in the dumpster.

They are held in secret – the fact that one has been convened is not even officially acknowledged. The Wall Street Journal leaked that one has been set up in Washington by Mueller.

The grand jury in Washington D.C. will look into links between the Trump team and Russia to influence the White House election and whether there have been any subsequent attempt to obstruct justice.

The grand jury in New York will look into Trump’s financial dealings with Russia.

How serious is this development for Trump?


The grand jury decides whether a case is strong enough to push ahead with an indictment.

But the main reason for holding a grand jury is that it is a powerful investigative tool. It can subpoena witnesses and demand the production of documents – even foreign documents.
