FNC Host & Former Defense Attorney on Mueller Investigation: Where Is The Crime?

The president didn't shy away from a new development about the investigation into Russia's influence on the election.

Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller has propelled a stupendous jury in his examination of Russian impact in the 2016 decision, The Wall Street Journal announced Thursday.

Another unnamed source told CNN that Mueller has issued grand jury subpoenas related to the 2016 meeting Donald Trump Jr. had with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in Manhattan. Mueller has the authority to investigate any matters that "arose or may arise directly from the investigation", according to Rosenstein's order appointing Mueller as special counsel. "The White House favors anything that accelerates the conclusion of his work fairly ..." "A grand jury in Washington is also more convenient for Mr. Mueller and his 16 attorneys-they work just a few blocks from the US federal courthouse where grand juries meet-than one that is 10 traffic-clogged miles away in Virginia".

Grand jury investigations can take months or even years as jurors work to gather enough evidence to compile a case.

Prosecutors convene grand juries to hear testimony and seek subpoenas, and to pursue indictments.

The White House had no idea that a grand jury was being assembled ABC News reported.

The grand jury does not mean that criminal charges will be filed, but it is a sign that the investigation is much bigger and involves more people that Mike Flynn.

Trump's son-in-law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort also attended the meeting.

Trump believes that there have been supporters of Hillary Clinton hired by Mueller, and that the special investigator is good friends with the previous investigator, Comey.

"In situations like this, when you've got an investigation, it's typically how they move forward".

But he said it would be "very dangerous" if this led to Trump firing or attempting to fire Mueller, warning that "I think this would create a real constitutional crisis".

"There were no Russians in our campaign", Trump said. USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation attempted to sway the presidential contest in Trump's favor.
