Federal grand jury working in Mueller probe is extended

A federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., working with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election has been extended, officials said, but it is not clear for how long.

The grand jury, empaneled July 5, 2017, had been set to end Saturday after an 18-month term. Chief U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell of D.C., who oversees grand jury activities, said she approved the extension.

Howell declined to comment on how much longer the grand jury could sit. Under federal rules of criminal procedure, a grand jury may serve more than 18 months only if a judge finds an extension is in the public interest, and then generally for no more than six additional months.

6. Kind of disappointing...

Taxpayers coughed up about 70 million for the Ken Starr investigation and all we got was a presidential blow job.


Damn.

2. If Trump is re-elected Mueller will investigate him for his entire second term. ...

Mueller may even continue to investigate Trump for a decade after he leaves office.

3. Nothing he has charged anybody with is Russian collusion

He is dragging up every but what was his original mandate and going off the secondary. Still nothing on Trump after 2 years.
