Mueller’s Grand Jury: What It Means

The most significant conclusion we can draw from news that a grand jury has been impaneled by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is that the so-called Russia investigation, officially, is a criminal investigation.

…All that said, the fact that there is a criminal investigation does not mean charges are imminent, or indeed that they will ever be filed. There are virtually no limits on the investigative powers of the grand jury. Under our law, a grand jury may conduct a probe simply to satisfy itself that no crimes have been committed. That is to say, there is no evidentiary threshold that must be crossed before a grand jury can begin investigating…

    It is said that any prosecutor worth his salary can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich.

      I’s summer. I guess fishing season is in order.

    It means the deep state is ramping up its optics to deflect away from reality.
    Reality is the DNC is being uncovered faster than any real collusion with Russia and Trump.

    I guess they’re amping up to Squirrel! to give the media an excuse not to cover the exploding Democrat scandals.

    It’s not about justice, it’s about disrupting Trump’s presidency.

      Yes, to ensure that while may physically occupy the office, he remains powerless.

    I agree with the first four posters to this thread. I just want to emphasize that Trump is in deep, deep trouble. The special prosecuto is a pro-Democtat; his staff are all members of the Democratic party; the forthcoming leaks will all be to slavishly pro-Democratic-party newspapers. The forthcoming inquisition will be a celebration of elite, Democratic party power over conservatives. The fix is in.

    Trouble? You bet. Last Black Friday they sold more guns than the US Marines have in their arsenals. I wonder why…

      Guns are like guitars, once you buy one, you always want more. I’m inflicted by both forms of GAS. (Guns/Guitar) Acquisition Syndrome.

  • I don’t trust this Mueller – friend of Comey’s – forming a leftist team (Hillary supporters all of them) – he is up to no good. Trump needs to fire him. He must first fire Sessions and then Rosenstein and replace both with more trustworthy people, who will in turn fire Mueller.

      Sessions started the ball rolling on this.

    This is to give the appearance of Russian collusion so the media can protect the DNC. Mueller is playing politics.
