Reports: Mueller Empanels Grand Jury – First Subpoena Issued to Donald Trump Jr….

According to numerous media reports Robert Mueller has empaneled a grand jury so that subpoenas can be dispatched to begin taking testimony in the ongoing investigation into Russian interference within the 2016 election.  Apparently Donald Trump Jr. in the first batch of recipients.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Grand jury subpoenas have been issued in connection with a June 2016 meeting that included President Donald Trump’s son, his son-in-law and a Russian lawyer, two sources told Reuters on Thursday, in a sign that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is gathering pace.

The sources added that Mueller had convened a grand jury in Washington to help investigate allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. (link)

    After getting documents from Don Jr. a GJ is empaneled (supposedly for Jr & Russian lawyer meeting). You can use GJ to get more info.

    Maybe the info Mueller needs to get is documents from the man that set the meeting up or the Russian lawyer. Maybe Mueller is actually going to look at the Russians part in this meeting. This doesn’t necessarily mean Don Jr is in trouble.

      There is no crime from having a meeting.

      In fact, if Vladimir Putin came to Trump Tower for that meeting, it’s not a crime.

      They have had over a year to describe a crime. There is none.
      They are the criminals for unmasking.

        the crime (allegedly, if one exists) is not the meeting in and of itself.

        it’s whether or not Don, Jr. knowingly expected to receive “anything” from it.

            • Scooter Libby’s problem was he met with these government goons without a lawyer. He said innocent people didn’t need a lawyer. Guess they showed him. Never talk to government police state agents without a lawyer. The fact that he was convicted and was innocent seems to be lost on most people. However, in this case, anyone they indict will get a pardon from Trump before it goes anywhere.

          Smiley, is that your opinion or fact? Please site federal law reference.

          How could anyone know or prove Don Jr.’s expectations? When did expectation become a crime? Talking to a lawyer, even one named Natalia from Russia is not illegal. In addition, from everything that has been reported, Natalia did not offer any information relating to the election.

          If you drive the streets expecting to run a red light, but do not, are you guilty? The analogy to this case is that someone is willing to tell you that they know how to run a red light.

              I remember Trump Jr saying he would be interested in any information detrimental to Hillary… I mean who wouldn’t be interested in that?
              I would think that whatever information they possessed would be discussed and negotiated for upon it’s presentation.
              Anything negotiated and compensated for at the time of presentation would not be a donation, granted I never saw a transcript regarding any price for information… likewise I never saw a transcript regarding any mention of a donation.

              FWIW – if everyone around Trump were a lawyer like around every other politician none of this would happen… the lawyers talk and it sounds like they are giving you an answer… however they have left themselves with 4 lanes worth of wiggle room.

          There is no federal law preventing a candidate for political office from meeting with somebody with the expectation of receiving information that is damaging to his opponent. Such a law would put an end to open debate in political campaigns.

          That law that has been contorted to apply to this meeting is the law that prohibits candidates for public office from accepting campaign contributions from foreign donors. The contortion is equating information about a candidates’ opponent as something of tangible value, therefore foreign sources cannot provide information to a political candidate about his opponent because that constitutes a campaign contribution.

          To stretch the law even further, Donald Trump jr. received no information whatsoever that was damaging to Hillary Clinton — that was a ruse to get his attention to make a pitchagainst the Maginsky act, But the specious logic is that his going to the meeting with the expectation of receiving damaging information about Hillary Clinton is equivalent to meeting somebody for the purpose of receiving an illegal cash donation from a foreign donor.

          FWIW, Hillary Clinton DID receive monetary donations from both Saudi Arabia and China, but this doesn’t seem to concern any of the legal purists. And one has to wonder, if a female russian lawyer had contacted Chelsea Clinton claiming to represent a contestant in the Miss Russia contest who had been raped by Donald Trump, would these purists have accused Chelsea of conspiring to violate federal law by meeting with the woman? Would you?

          They got to prove both that Donald Trump Junior was expecting information and was willing to trade or collude in order to get it.

          Since no information was received and therefore no quid pro quo was proffered then how could any crime have been committed.

        I agree. A Grand Jury can indict a ham sandwich. And will, in this instance, and likely pile on a whole catalog of charges,because the public will think that if there are lots of charges, at least some of them must have validity.

        Expect this Grand Jury, which is drawn from the DC area (where Trump took only 5% of the vote) to indict everybody possible, with the aim (along with the deep state) of getting Trump to either resign or be impeached. That’s the game plan.

        Our legal system (and especially the Grand Jury charade) needs reform or abolishment. And the DC swamp needs to be drained.

        Moral turpitude. In most states, if not all, that is grounds to remove a politician, civil servant or police officer. Some interpret this as an act of sexual misconduct, but moral turpitude covers a huge blanket of offenses.
        Wiki: Moral turpitude is a legal concept in the United States and some other countries that refers to “an act or behavior that gravely violates the sentiment or accepted standard of the community”.

        I would say that the House n Senate have gravely violated these sentiments and the accepted standards of the community. So have Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, et al.

Renacci in OH has no opponent, last election or this one coming up, although he is thinking about running for Governor. Republican Josh Mandel is trying to unseat Dem. Senator Brown – not sure about him since he served in the Kasich administration, but hopeful that he is a Patriot, having served in the military. He also has some name recognition here, but Brown is popular with the masses. Patriots need to come forward, become vetted and funded, well known and papers filed. We can’t wait until the last minute or we will get the same traitors for President Trump. That is how we ended up with the Never-Trumper Portman for five more years. No opponent! PDJT needs back-up! The reason the Tea Party was effectively stopped in it’s tracks is because they were so organized and successful. I think we should carry that same process to the 2018 elections and, of course, to 2020 and beyond. Yes, we have rallied behind Pres. Trump, but we need to do the same to unseat the Dem and RINO congressional members for his agenda to proceed and get the votes he needs to pass his legislation. The obstruction must end in 2018 for Trump’s success.

      It is a slanted article, trying to build a case against the President, clearly. It does, however, illustrate how they will in all likelihood try to proceed. (As an aside, note in the article the role played by Baker, whose the press identified last week as potentially under investigation himself for leaking).

      Mueller has real problems, however. Trying to turn conversations into obstruction (and it is far from certain that they can even prove the conversations occurred as the dramatic Comey claims) you are left with two things: One, Comey did not report this to the AG, as he is required to do if he believes a crime has been committed. Rather, he happily sat on the information until fired, and then went on a leak vendetta to get back at Trump. Very tough for Comey to say “Hell yes, I believed this was obstruction” and explain convincingly why he didn’t take immediate steps to notify DOJ.

      Further, again assuming proof of the conversations, we have the issue of intent to impede or obstruct. That also fails. First, the allegation is that Trump tried to obstruct the Flynn investigation. His “I hope” statement would to qualify as obstruction. Second, they seek to prove that Trump tried to impede the “Russia” investigation. False. Trump simply asked Comey to tell the truth–the truth being that the President according to Comey himself, was not under investigation. So, demanding that the man tell the truth is not obstruction, and even firing him for his refusal, would not rise to obstruction.

      Lastly, the firing of Comey. The problem areas here are the statements that followed the firing, which I will not repeat here, let’s just say they were not helpful. There were a myriad of good reaons to fire Comey–his refusal to tell the truth about the investigation, and the facts in the two letters signed by Sessions and Rosenstein. Had the problematic statements to Lester Holt and others not been made, the firing of Comey would have ended there, and we possibly wouldn’t have a special counsel at all. Nonetheless, I’m sure the truth will come out, that the President was unhappy with Comey for a variety of understandable, proper reasons, and would have fired him in any event.

      The President will prevail on these matters.

          I think the key is this. We need to articulate exactly how the game is rigged – which I’m about to do. That way we destroy the credibility of not only what they are doing, but what they are NOT doing, which is key.

          This is actually not hard. It has nothing to do with Mueller himself – it is the global process. They have rigged this at a very high level so Trump can’t do anything about it. BUT WE CAN. We can absolutely destroy the credibility of the process.

          We need to reject the overall DOJ process due to its corrupt timing, which allows criminals to convict an innocent man before the criminals can be tried.

          It is rigged as a race, where (in this case) minor charges against Trump move forward quickly and completely, while complete foot-dragging is carried out toward the MAJOR criminals who pursue Trump. This is fundamentally unfair, and we need to threaten holy hell if it’s not corrected soon. If not corrected soon, we REJECT THE OUTCOME AND GO TO WAR.

          Trump’s opponents are actually using an Asian communist technique to get Trump. It was used by both the Chinese and Vietnamese communists. I learned of it from a refugee who was very familiar with how Asian communists work.

          What they do is sneak somebody in near the top of an organization or process – somebody who has the power to move people quickly up in said organization or process. Then that person holds back competent non-communists, while advancing communists. Very soon (in a matter of years – patiently) the organization is dominated by communists in key positions.

          Sound like Mueller’s process? Of course it does. Sound like DOJ? Of course it does.

          THIS IS RIGGED BY TIMING.

          We are seeing that here. We need to analyze the corruption of the process right out in the open. We CALL OUT THE CORRUPTION for all to see. But we also need to DESCRIBE what should be done – the trials and prosecutions which SHOULD BE GOING ON NOW.

          All of this will delegitimize the kangaroo trials of Trump associates, but even more, his enemies.

          We have to start the war NOW – a war of words that tears down their SICK process which protects Hillary.

          They are beating Trump by a combination moving forward crap and holding back serious criminal investigations. We have to attack BOTH.

            I repeat. DO NOT WAIT for Trump to be “cleared”. That is not in the cards. Once I realized what they’re doing – as a known communist tactic – I realized that the absolute best he will do is be slowly tarnished with kangaroo proceedings until the 2020 election. That gives them plenty of time to bring in other measures to “Bush” him out.

              Some choices to be made. Just blow up the process and try to survive the aftermath (ultimate danger being Senate turncoats, and there are plenty), wait it out going with a strict traditional legal stragegy, or legal strategy coupled with surrogates attacking the credibility of the process (Bill Clinton approach). I don’t know what they’ll decide. Their approach has not clearly manifested itself yet.

            Wolf – thanks for your clarity. Communist playbook? Absolutely.

Then that person holds back competent non-communists, while advancing communists. Very soon (in a matter of years – patiently) the organization is dominated by communists in key positions.” Yep. My take is,

            Closest in time is Mueller, but it also sounds just like the Obama years.

            And probably even before, but a little more stealthy.

            If we are to be effective, I think we need to have a plan, IMO.

            My question is – if you were to recommend a course of action,

            what would it be? Should we all get more public?

            Websites? Blogs? Podcasts? More of this that we’re doing?

              All of those things, but we have to focus so we pin them down on specific things. I think the Mueller process needs to be destroyed, but not by attacking only him. We need to follow Trump’s lead in this last rally. He landed DEVASTATING blows on Hillary, and I think we need to attack the GANG OF FOUR at the center of this, with ALL WEAPONS. The focus is HILLARY and the lack of prosecution of HER crimes. It’s not about defending Trump. We go on OFFENSE against Hillary NOW.

              HILLARY – She is a CRIMINAL, who OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE, and her COMEY CLEANSING must be considered NULL AND VOID. IMMEDIATELY.

              COMEY – He is a CRIMINAL, who AIDED and COVERED UP obstruction of justice, and his cover-up is grounds for ARREST and PROSECUTION. IMMEDIATELY.

              LYNCH – She is CORRUPT and possibly a CRIMINAL, and we need IMMEDIATE investigation to find out if she ORDERED Comey or received ORDERS from Obama. Most importantly, DID THE AG OF THE UNITED STATES OBSTRUCT JUSTICE?

              MUELLER – He is TAINTED, and it appears that his investigation is INFLUENCED, CORRUPT, and subject to RICO. We need to pressure Rosenstein to INVESTIGATE his own assignment of Mueller, whether that was a MISTAKE, and possibly EXPAND the investigation PROPERLY – not IMPROPERLY as TAINTED MUELLER has done.

Trump needs to evaluate the top 3 layers of DOJ for their records on prosecuting either Obama or Clinton appointees, officials, friends, associates, etc. Top 3 layers. Then FIRE the least productive half of each layer. Then, to be sure, fire all cronies of those, three more layers down.

    Dear Attorney General Sessions,

    I have been a Trump supporter since he came down the escalator. I supported you because you supported him. Now I am dumbfounded to understand where your head is at. I appreciate your passion for MS 13, but where is your passion for our President. We trusted you! We prayed and hoped for you! YOU have let us and our President down. You have left him and his family exposed! How could you look yourself in the mirror and admire your choices. The best thing for you to do is to step down. But if you don’t have the GUTS to do that you need to empower a grand jury to look into the Clinton Foundation, Fast and Furious, the meeting by Lynch and Bill Clinton etc… there are so many issues. But you are concerning yourself with, property seizure and ms 13. Where is your duty to OUR PRESIDENT. You sir have checked out. And we are pleading with you to either protect OUR PRESIDENT or resign. To date you have been the biggest disappointment and disgrace of the Presidents team. Please step up to the plate or GO,

    Thank you ,

    A vey Committed Trump supporter!

    Did any of you all read through the 98 page FEC financials in 2015, and the 104 pages in 2016?
    That was all the 500 legal entities of the Trump Org, and DJT’s revenue streams.

    His businesses are really very traditional incomes streams, just big numbers and so many different sources. There is not much opportunity for him to do any criminal activity. He uses credit lines secured by properties. He starts and shuts downs lots of small entities. He expenses every penny to reduce his exposure to taxes. He’s meticulously cheap about giving government a dime.

    The IRS has never found anything out of line. The reality is DJT is clean. The family is cleaner, being mostly salaried. Jared may have some shady stuff. His dad was not clean. But I doubt he has done anything wrong.

    Mueller is trying to flip Manafort against Trump. Ridiculous. Paul Manafort is one tough dude. He’s afraid of nothing. He got paid by Ukrainians. He’s not connected to Russia.

    This is all bullsh*t. If there is an irregularity in the income taxes, they are audited by big CPA firms, and reviewed in IRS audits each year. It’s not Trump’s “crime”. Everyone certifies the returns, year after year. 3000 pages of returns.

    Stay rational, folks. DJT is going on vacation. He’s going to play golf and eat steak with ketchup, enjoy two scoops.

    Still worried? Pray for America and DJT.

    And where is our AG Sessions. I liked the post above about not worrying, but some things make no sense as I have pointed out here before. If Trump has NOTHING to hide and worry about, why would he publicly humiliate his friend and well loved and respected AG Sessions? Sorry, but he HAS to be worried about something really bad to start bashing his AG who supported him from the start and who he has praised constantly.

    So no, as I said before, Sessions screwed up and because he needlessly recused himself Trump is now being ravaged by Meuller and his hit squad. If Trump wasn’t worried he simply would not have went after Sessions publicly like that when he had praised him so often before this Meuller investigation.

    And if the taxes are all in order, as sais, big firms who all check off on them, no problems at all, then why didn’y he release them? Again, there has to be something he does not want exposed or he would have USED the fact that they were totally clean to POUND the left over the head with them when the left was freaking out about them daily. So we are to believe he had this great weapon of totally clean taxes that he could have released and it would have made total fools of the left after they had screamed from the high heavens about them and he just decided not to use that awesome weapon to make fools of them?

    Then add that we are supposed to believe he’s totally clean, but just decides he’ll publicly slam his most ardent supporter who is very well loved in his home state and respected by many, for what reason again?

    I am afraid I am with Hannity wen he said he is worried and that the deep state has the upper hand right now. They are rummaging through his life, they can now get their hands on his taxes and all business dealings and Trump knows that Session’s weakness allowed this mess and he is worried about what will come out, and THAT is the only rational answer for why he publicly went after such a well liked and respected supporter of his, a man on his very team. If he had nothng to hide he would have had no reason to be mad at Sessions, and definitely not mad enough to slam him publicly.

    I am very worried because it couldn’t be more obvious that Trump is very worried or he wouldn’t have done what he did to Sessions. Sessions was a FOOL to recuse and now Trump has no AG to command the situation and keep Meuller in line. People with nothing to hide, hide nothing. If those taxes were clean he would have used that awesome weapon and made complete fools of the left with them and we all would have enjoyed every second of it. He hasn’t released them because he doesn’t want them seen by the world and this is why he was so PO;ed at Sessions, and he should be.

    Seen lots of very pessimistic stuff ….. a glass half full vs glass half empty view ….. but very simplistic …..

    As testimony to the House Intelligence Committee on 20 March and as reflected in Rosenstein’s letter appointing the SC, there are three distinct parts to the investigation i.e. ……

    “investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election”
    and
    “investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government”
    and
    “whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.”

    It would have been very surprising if Mueller was not already going to one of the existing Grand Juries because he has to subpoena stuff from many sources. Anyone subpoenaed can make it public and it does not have to be a leak for the existence of a GJ to be known.

    It is alleged that Russia’s efforts included committing illegal acts by hacking the DNC server and Podesta’s email account. Mueller has to conclusively show whether these illegal acts actually took place as alleged. As part of that he must go to a Grand Jury to subpoena documents etc from the DNC, Podesta etc. There are also allegations that the Russia stuff resulted from Dems etc using the Steele Trump-Russia dossier to initiate the investigation and he must follow that up with subpoenas etc. Most unlikely that would include HRC’s emails etc etc it may prove to be embarrassing for the Dems.

    The nature of any links between campaign individuals and the Russian Government is problematic because of the wide interpretation that can be put on it. However it is most unlikely that indictments would be justified.

    If Russia committed illegal acts such as hacking then “coordination” of these illegal acts with campaign individuals may also have been illegal.

    The major issue is whether Mueller can prove that Russia committed illegal hacking acts. If not then any collusion etc is a relatively unimportant issue and, if latest unsubstantiated reports are to be believed, the Dems may be just as embarrassed as any of PDJT’s campaign individuals.

      • boot says:

        Whether Mueller is a champion of parallel construction or not, as an SC he is far more publicly accountable than he was as Head of the FBI. Therefore I’m certain that Mueller will make a 100% effort to be seen to comply with the rules of conduct and accountability applicable to an SC e.g. “An SC shall comply with the rules, regulations, procedures, practices and policies of the DOJ. He shall consult with appropriate offices within the DOJ for guidance with respect to established practices, policies and procedures, including ethics and security regulations and procedures.” At the end of his investigation Mueller must provide Rosenstein with a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions reached by the SC. Rosenstein then reports to the Judiciary Committees.

        If Mueller does not strictly follow the DOJ rules of conduct, procedures, practices, policies and ethics then his investigation is compromised and disputable in court.

        Therefore, as one example, I’m certain that Mueller will make a 100% effort to avoid accusations of conflict of interest. He will not pursue accusations of obstruction of justice arising from PDJT firing Comey and he will not use Comey as a witness. If the investigation does involve Comey then PDJT has the opportunity to insist that Mueller has to recuse himself as SC and Rosenstein (or Brand – see below) has to appoint a new SC.

        Also, if he involves Comey in any way, then Rosenstein may have to recuse himself from supervising the SC investigation because of Rosenstein’s letter about Comey at the time when he was fired. Rachel Brand then takes charge of the Russia investigation and may not appoint a new SC because she was not previously involved and can decide to take the investigation back into the DOJ.

        The fundamental point for me is that Mueller must fully investigate and report upon the “hacking” of the DNC server. He has to have conclusive proof that both the server was actually hacked by an outside body and that it was the Russian Government that was responsible for the hacking as part of their efforts. For evidence he cannot rely on the Crowdstrike analysis and the vague “assessment” by Clapper etc that the Russian Government did it. If he does not, as examples, subpoena the DNC for the server and associated documents and does not subpoena documents relating to the Trump/Russia dossier then he is not in compliance with the DOJ rules of conduct, etc etc and will justifiably be accused by the Trump side that his investigation is unethical and compromised.

      It’s not a shame – IT IS A CRIME IN ITSELF.

      It is a CRIME that Hillary was CRIMINALLY AIDED by crooked lawyer Jim Comey, who covered up her obstruction of justice. Yet Hillary walks free, and Comey walks free.

      Their continued non-prosecution by DOJ is a CRIME. DOJ is CRIMINAL on Hillary and Comey. They continue to protect CRIMINALS, and this is in itself a CRIME.

    Here we are 6 months in. I thought we would have grand juries going after the crooks. Instead, we have a Deep Swamp beltway grand jury going after President Trump. How could this have happened? He is in the meatgrinder. None of his allies or family are safe. Muelley is going to move fast on this. There will not be a never ending ongoing investigation. He can’t indict the president, only refer to the House Judiciary Committee. He can indict friends and family. This is awful. I still think his only way out is declassify and pardon. Have from the very start.

    Grand jury bombshell rocks media, but calm down: This is what prosecutors do
    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/08/04/grand-jury-bombshell-rocks-media-but-calm-down-this-is-what-prosecutors-do.amp.html

    Excerpt:

    As an old Justice Department reporter, I can tell you this is utterly routine. Prosecutors regularly convene grand juries to question witnesses and gather evidence. It’s what they do. The shocker would have been if Mueller completed his investigation without bringing in a grand jury.

    In fact, as the Journal story notes, there already was a grand jury, across the river in Alexandria, that the FBI was using in this case before Mueller was appointed.

      but that other, earlier grand jury was for the Flynn investigation…IIRC.

      it is also “utterly routine” for the FBI to testify….and they have been very careful re the Comey meetings.

      PDJT is up against something here…and it’s not Business Law.

      Yes, it was obvious this would happen, Mueller is going after him and needs a grand jury to compel and memorialize testimony, force document production, etc. Just something to think about: Comey, to my knowledge, never impaneled a grand jury in the Clinton matters.
      All handled very buddy-buddy, not even sworn interviews. Contrast with current situation.

    The Criminalization of Almost Everything – “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.”

    In a 2010 article by the Cato Institute Harvey Silvergate and Tim Lynch discussed the growth of voluminous vague laws in our country, and the consequences to everyone exposed to our legal system as a defendant.

    Silvergate mentioned Alan Dershowitz foreword to his book:

    “In his foreword to my book, Alan Dershowitz discusses his time litigating cases in the old Soviet Union. He was always taken by the fact that they could prosecute anybody they wanted because some of the statutes were so vague. Dershowitz points out that this was a technique developed by Beria, the infamous sidekick of Stalin, who said, “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.” That really is something that has survived the Soviet Union and has arrived in the good old USA. “Show me the man,” says any federal prosecutor, “and I can show you the crime.” This is not an exaggeration.”

    No more classic example than Martha Stewart. She got convicted not for insider trading (the original investigation), but for “…her failure to make an abject plea of guilty on national television, in front of the entire press, when asked about whether she had committed insider trading fraud…”

    Watch for something like this coming out of Mueller’s investigation. They just need enough time to comb through thousands of President Trumps tweets and public appearances. and high power attorneys with expertise in every facet of the law (that’s why so many attorneys under Mueller).

    The Cato article:
    https://www.cato.org/policy-report/januaryfebruary-2010/criminalization-almost-everything

    And of course we all know who writes the laws……

    People, please do not forget all the knives and arrows President Trump faced . . . JUST TO GET THROUGH THE PRIMARY. Pray for him and his family, but please remember God placed this man in power against all odds because he was the only candidate who could turn our country around! And only God will allow him to be taken out of power. Knowing that the President is himself praying and putting himself in God’s hands is more comforting than anything.

    1) As Sekulow said, lawyers are always vigilant about conflicts of interest, and so is he. BUT conflicts can only be assessed in the very specific contexts in which they arise. As Sekulow said, at this point he does not have grounds for asserting a conflict. From Trump’s point of view, the question of conflict may never arise.

    2) Sekulow very pointedly (and confidently it seemed) said the president was not the subject of the investigation and he expected Mueller’s investigation would be over quickly

      WITH RESPECT TO the President. Sekulow repeated that a couple times.

      3) If Don Jr, has been called as a witness, that might be a very good thing. Don Jr did nothing wrong, but the circumstances of the meeting as reported elsewhere suggests bad news for Hillary and the Democrats and McClain.

      4) Mueller MUST investigate the DNC “hacking.” That is unavoidable. Trump has zero to fear in that regard, but the “hacking” might very well be Pandora’s Box for the Democrats.

    The whole creation of the Special Prosecutor normally demands evidence of a crime being presented to DOJ. When Sessions recused himself there is no one to stop Mueller. Replacing Sessions wouldn’t fix much because the replacement needs to be confirmed and that would drag on and on. Meanwhile Meuller continues operating. Now that Meuller has called a Grand Jury and specifically requested Donald Jr. to appear… Well that makes sense only with the meeting with the Russian lawyer who lied her way into the meeting with promised dirt on DNC / Hillary. She never got into the dirt but instead lobbied for support on her pet project. The emails are there with the suggestion they were bringing dirt. Trump hadn’t even won the nomination when this meeting took place. DJT wasn’t present because it was an unimportant meeting unless it bore fruit. Not sure if they can prove any wrong doing. The DNC and Hillary campaign did far worse on their opposition research and certainly have much greater Meh Russia ties with actual money being exchanged.

    I am sure that DJT is as sick of this garbage as the rest of us and now they are threatening his son. Waiting patiently to see how this all plays out. Regardless, I support Trump. I don’t give a hoot about his leaked call transcripts with Mexico nor Australia and having read them, see absolutely nothing wrong. Do we really need or want a physical wall at the border? No. There is a huge impact right now without the wall, people are even self-deporting in some cases and illegal’s crossing into the US have dropped dramatically. The wall is a symbol. Eventually there should be a wall to prevent drug trafficking but it’s not as important as other issues at the moment.

    • The legal way forward is for Trump’s attorney to press the matter of Mueller’s appointment lacking a legal predicate. Insist that Rosenstein properly specify exactly what crime is alleged, and then confine Mueller to that investigation only.

      Then if Mueller in the course of his investigation uncovers another crime he will follow DOJ regulations and petition the Deputy AG for permission to follow up.

      Frankly, the investigations Mueller is reportedly getting into (money laundering in the New York real estate market) may be a legitimate crime but it’s a matter for the FBI and DOJ, no within his purview.

  32. Huh. It appears that contrary to the prognostications of **some people** Mueller isn’t “following the evidence” back to the Obama Administration, and all the alleged crimes committed by Brennan, Clapper, Rice, etc.

    Instead, he is doing exactly what I expected him to do at the outset, pursue Trump with a single-minded determination to the exclusion of all else. Get Trump; bring down the president. That is his sole purpose, he won’t ever stop. And his investigation leaks like a sieve.

    Apparently he didn’t find any collusion, so now he’s in the process of fabricating “process crimes”, trying to catch someone on a perjury / lying to investigators charge. And if that doesn’t bear fruit he’s also investigating everyone who purchased real estate from Trump’s businesses.

    Yeah, that Mueller is a man of impeccable integrity. A real stand-up guy. Not a political hack black hat like his best friend and protégé Jim Comey./sarc

      Agreed. This is going to be a horrible, CRIMINAL attack on Trump. If you wondered by Lindsey Graham and John McCain backed off on Trump, this is why. They TRUST in the corrupt Mueller process.

      The failure to publicly deal with the CRIMES of Hillary, Comey, Lynch and now Mueller – who is an accessory to the corrupt process – is breathtaking. NOTHING is being done about real criminals. Our DOJ is a MOCKERY OF JUSTICE – just like it was under Obama.

      FIRE THEM ALL. Right out from under Sessions. Send a message that the organization is corrupt, for failing to deal with Clinton and Comey – for continuing to PROTECT them.

  33. Mark Levin, who is an attorney, points out that Grand Jury proceedings are SECRET, but somehow the fact that there is one, and details of who is subpoenaed, and the nature of the information requested in the subpoena, is leaked to the media!!!

    The only one who could be leaking this information is Mueller.

  36. Trump should demand a private meeting with the DNC and read them the ‘riot act’. Tell them to back off or else. The DNC knows they are vulnerable and Trump should tell them that he will instruct HIS attorney general to start multiple investigations immediately. And just in case they don’t believe him, he should start one that will easily result in prosecution and conviction just to show them who’s in charge. Oh, what the hell. Hit ’em on all fronts. They deserve it. It’s too late for talking now.

      Yes, during all the hoopla during the email “investigation”, no grand jury was ever impaneled to take testimony. All just handled very chummily.
      One reason they never used a grand jury to compel testimony was the need to keep up the lie agreed upon by Lynch and the Clinton campaign that there was no “criminal investigation”, just “a matter”, or as Clinton claimed “a security review.”
