Special counsel Robert Mueller is using multiple grand juries in Russia-Trump investigationOn August 5, 2017 by Kenna
Special counsel Robert Mueller is using at least two grand juries, one in VA and one in D.C., to investigate possible coordination between the presidential campaign of Donald Trump and Russia, USA Today reports, citing a lawyer involved in the case.
Mueller’s probe of possible Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election may continue to span multiple panels, or the investigation could at some point consolidate the multiple threads in the nation’s capital, “where the special counsel’s team has only begun to use a grand jury in recent weeks.”
But the lawyer, who requested anonymity to discuss the matter, said both venues continued to be active in recent days.
The use of the grand jury located in Washington is potentially significant, analysts said, as it likely means investigators are probing activities that happened within that jurisdiction.
Mueller’s team is investigating possible obstruction of justice related to the president’s abrupt May 9 dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s contacts with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak – all of which occurred in the District of Columbia.
[The] use of these grand juries is a clear sign that Mueller’s probe is intensifying and could go on for months or years.
The move would give Mueller, a former FBI director, broad authority to subpoena documents and compel witnesses to testify under oath.
