According to The Wall Street Journal, special counsel Robert Mueller has now impaneled a grand jury to investigate Russian 2016 election interference. Actually, the grand jury has reportedly been working for weeks. The White House’s lawyer, Ty Cobb, said that the White House looked forward to working with Mueller in accordance with law. But this is a major step forward for Mueller in a criminal investigation, as former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy points out:
It is unclear what exactly the grand jury will be investigating; there is a second grand jury that has already been impaneled to look into the activities of former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn, which suggests that there are figures outside of Flynn who are now under the watchful eye of Mueller and his team. Grand juries are typically impaneled in order to pursue compulsion of document release or testimony, after which they may or may not initiate criminal charges.
According to CNN, Mueller’s team is focusing on precisely the sorts of material Trump said would be a red line for him: financial activities. CNN states:
Federal investigators exploring whether Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian spies have seized on Trump and his associates’ financial ties to Russia as one of the most fertile avenues for moving their probe forward, according to people familiar with the investigation…. the FBI is reviewing financial records related to the Trump Organization, as well as Trump, his family members, including Donald Trump Jr., and campaign associates. They’ve combed through the list of shell companies and buyers of Trump-branded real estate properties and scrutinized the roster of tenants at Trump Tower reaching back more than a half-dozen years. They’ve looked at the backgrounds of Russian business associates connected to Trump surrounding the 2013 Miss Universe pageant.

Is Mr Mueller also looking into the “Collusion” between Hillary and Ukrainian officials,
Which has already been “Documented”??????
Mueller is a biased demonratic hack who needs to be TOTALLY investigated and thrown in front of a grand jury to expose his corruption. Just think, this putz delivered the 20% of our uranium to the Russians that Hillary “Rotten” Clinton approved. Collusion indeed by Clinton and Mueller. Come on congress do your job, drain the marxist demonratic swamp !!!
It would be far more IMPORTANT, to begin actively campaign for a T E R M L I M I T , Amendment, We must stop these rhinos sitting in Congress some for more then 40years. The side show, what we seeing now against Mr. Trump, is nothing compared to what will happen , if we wont be able to enact TERM LIMIT for ALL elective offices. City, state and Federal. 2×2 years for Congress 2x 3 or 4 year s for the Senate and similar arrangements for City and State Senators. The most important elements, must be included in the Amendments. 1 / Once served in any elective office, for the next ten years, they can not be elected again for any position. 2/ once they served or during their serve, they can not be hired by any LOBBY Firm…. can not be working for any firm, who’s main purpose is to influence Legislation on any level… Anyone caught violating the terms, Automatic 5 year sentence, without parole.
Illegal witch hunt! Congress should object and fire Mueller, Comey’s pal!
What in God’s name is going on here? This is in no way and investigation into whether or not Donald Trump colluded with Russia. This is a blatant act of trying to impeach our President for any minute thing they can dig up. This needs to be stopped. Obama has committed so many crimes and treasonous acts we have lost count and nothing has ever been done about these. Now, you tell me what this looks like to you? This is not an American Act; this is a communist act. Someone, please step in because this is against everything America is suppose to stand for. We, the people, elected Donald J. Trump to be our President and I for one think he is doing a bang up job considering all the obstacles thrown his way. What is with you Liberals? You are as crooked as curled up snake. I am so very mad as a United States of American proud citizen watching this happen to our President.
