Two Trump Grand Juries Already Convened ?

Postby toucana on May 8th, 2017, 11:20 pm 

A segment on GQ by political commentator Keith Olbermann claims that two Grand Juries have already been convened in respect of inquiries into connections between Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.

Olbermann cited a variety of sources including FBI director James Comey’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary committee in Congress last Wednesday, 3rd May, and recent Twitter messages by a Democrat Clinton staffer Claude Taylor, and Rick Wilson a former Republican aide of Rudy Giuliani.

Olbermann believes that one Grand Jury is investigating RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) warrants, and that another is dealing with FARA (Foreign Agent Registration Act) related matters.

One of the Grand Juries is said to be connected to the Main Justice office, the other is said to be taking place in the Eastern district of Virginia under the jurisdiction of Dana Boente who was formerly acting AG after the sacking of Sally Yates in January.

The report suggests that between 28 to 42 named persons of interest are being investigated.

Ever looked at the order of succession for the current potus? There's really no good outcome for the republic. It would be nice if Trump can at least take Pence down with him, though.

Mike Pence would definitely be worse. Pence is a genuine religious social conservative who actually knows how the government works, unlike certain presidents we could name. Trump is not a social con, he only plays one on tv to fool the rubes. And after Pence is Paul Ryan. And then Orrin Hatch (can you imagine?) then Rex Tillerson, Steve Mnuchin, General Mattis, and Jeff Sessions. How would you like Jeff Sessions to be president?

It's a regular rogue's gallery. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_St ... rent_order
