Trump's Grand Jury Response: Russia 'Fabrication' Just an Excuse for Clinton's Loss

Unlike in ordinary courts, witnesses are not allowed to have lawyers present. Of course, there are often government leaks.

The grand jury in Virginia had issued a subpoena related to Flynn's business, the Flynn Intel Group, which was paid more than $500,000 by a company owned by a Turkish American businessman close to top Turkish officials, said people familiar with the matter. After Mueller uses the grand jury to compel the production of documents and other evidence from targets and witnesses in the investigation, he will likely begin bringing witnesses in for testimony. No investigation of any complexity can be advanced without this capacity.

"I'm going to say something right now nobody has ever said before: God, I wish I had jury duty", joked Colbert on The Late Show. "So it doesn't mean there's going to be a trial, but it's a strong indication that something is going to happen".

SECRET SERVICE, OUT The Secret Service has vacated its command post inside Trump Tower amid a dispute with President Trump's company about the lease terms for the space, the Washington Post reported Thursday night.

The president listed his accomplishments in just a short seven months in office - accomplishments he suggests his opponents don't want you to know.

Gingrich wildly praised Mueller earlier this year after his appointment as special counsel, calling him a "superb choice" with an "impeccable" reputation for honesty and integrity. "The fact that Mueller recently recruited former prosecutor Greg Andres from a leading Wall Street law firm further confirms that his investigation will be broad and will last for some significant amount of time". Because of the premium our society places on the rule of law, prosecutors tend to think that nothing could be more important than their investigations and prosecutions.

All Americans ordered to LEAVE North Korea
Han Chol-Su, a senior North Korea development official, earlier denied that the loss of business would hurt his country's economy. A USA passport will only get you into North Korea for the rest of August, the State Department announced Wednesday.

"I would be concerned that the investigation has gone up another notch or appears to have gone up another notch". Prosecutors need to be sensitive to this. But, for weeks, the President has publicly assailed Mueller and his team. The views expressed in this article are those of just the author. So the desire for secrecy is understandable, and in most instances it is desirable. He called it a "total fabrication". "This is a criminal investigation in the fullest sense of the term". But it is a laughable distraction that will dissuade neither Mueller's team, nor the American people.

That is intolerable now that we are formally in a criminal-investigation mode.

Trump's answer was clear, as he previewed a political strategy created to question Mueller's legitimacy, suggesting his investigation was a tool of the establishment that is still smarting from Hillary Clinton's election loss.

"Congress must uphold its duty to defend the Constitution and investigate President Trumps financial dealings", he said.

"Yesterday, we saw another feature of Trump's alternate reality: the idea that immigrants are pouring into our country and hurting our economy", Meyers said.
