It has emerged that USA special counsel Robert Mueller is using a grand jury in Washington as part of an investigation into potential coordination or collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

A lawyer for President Trump, Jay Sekulow, appeared to downplay the significance of a grand jury, telling Fox News: "This is not an unusual move".

A Washington grand jury is said to be among the resources special counsel Robert Mueller is using in the investigation into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. That is, he has reached the point where he has evidence of criminal conduct. "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". "He's got a very powerful tool to pursue specific federal crimes". There are virtually no limits on the investigative powers of the grand jury.

"Grand jury matters are typically secret", Mr. Cobb said. 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.

Stephen Colbert also discussed the latest development in the special counsel investigation.

A grand jury had already been investigating the activities of Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general.

Newt Gingrich warned that there is corruption in the Justice Department, and he cautioned against blindly trusting the Russian Federation investigation.

Before Mr. Mueller was appointed to oversee the Russian Federation probe, a grand jury was assembled in Alexandria, Virginia to consider evidence against former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Yes. Richard Nixon was called before a grand jury in 1975 over the Watergate case after he resigned as president. Mueller also had previously worked in the US attorney's office in D.C., giving him some familiarity with the courthouse and the judges. As the Journal noted, simple convenience may also have been a factor: it's a few blocks from Mueller's office building. But can it keep him there? Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Christopher Coons, D-Del., and the other from Sens.

Underwood also acknowledged that the jail needs some improvement, such as installing more monitors and cameras. As of Tuesday morning, Brady Andrew Kilpatrick, 24, is the last remaining escapee from the Walker County Jail.

There may also be a political reason.

The next stage of the process will be even more theatrical.

It is unclear whether a new separate grand jury has been impaneled by the special counsel.

Trump Jr has said he did not tell his father about the meeting. A grand jury helps prosecutors determine whether to bring criminal charges or indictments against a defendant. We won because of you.

Why are grand juries feared? Officially, his lawyer welcomed the news, insisting yesterday that the President wasn't under investigation.

The news of a grand jury comes up as the US President prepares to take a 17-day-vacation to New Jersey later this week.

Wilber was asked about efforts in Congress to protect Mueller from being fired by the White House. But, for weeks, the President has publicly assailed Mueller and his team. But it is a laughable distraction that will dissuade neither Mueller's team, nor the American people.

What is the grand jury investigating?

During an interview on CNN's "Erin Burnett Outfront", Clapper, who led the intelligence community's assessment on Russian interference in the election, questioned Trump's ability to establish any red line, contending, "I'm not sure how someone who is under potential investigation draws red lines and says that certain aspects are out of bounds, I don't know how that works".
