    Federal prosecutors have impaneled a grand jury to investigate former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe following the Department of Justice inspector general’s report alleging that McCabe approved a media disclosure to advance his personal interests. The Washington Post reported that the grand jury has summoned more than one witness and the case is still underway. It remains unclear who were summoned to testify.

    Washington Post ^ | september 6 2018 | Matt Zopotosky
    Federal prosecutors have for months been using a grand jury to investigate former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe — an indication the probe into whether he misled officials exploring his role in a controversial media disclosure has intensified, two people familiar with the matter said. The grand jury has summoned more than one witness, the people said, and the case is ongoing. The people declined to identify those who had been called to testify. The presence of the grand jury shows prosecutors are treating the matter seriously, locking in the accounts of witnesses who might later have to testify at...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including Pittsburgh and Greensburg, has finally been released. The 884-page document, two years in the making, shines a light into the dark corners of these dioceses going back seven decades, exposing the predators and the efforts of their bishops to protect them. “Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “Pennsylvanians can finally learn the extent of sexual abuse in these dioceses. For the first time, we can...

    Freepers, About a year ago I had some discussions with one of you about a grand jury in Utah that was examining evidence related to Harry Reid. Sorry, I don't have that email and forgot the essence of the case, but as I recall funding was denied the GJ that kept it from meeting for a while. If you had contacted me about this, please do so again. Thanks.

    Today chairman Bob Goodlatte sends a formal subpoena to the DOJ (Inspector General Michael Horowitz) for documents regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility recommendation to fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. However, it’s not the subpoena that should make the news. Pay close attention to the DOJ response: Chad Pergram @ChadPergram DoJ on Hse Judiciary Cmte's subpoenas: We are individually reviewing the remaining documents to ensure that they do not include grand jury information, information about ongoing law enforcement actions involving...

  • Bannon Must Challenge Robert Mueller in Court (Prosecutorial Misconduct)

    01/25/2018 9:55:44 AM PST · by Moseley · 13 replies
    Prosecutorial misconduct is a serious matter. It proved fatal to the prosecution of Senator Ted Stevens in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Criminal Case No. 1:08-cr-00231-EGS, before Emmett G. Sullivan, District Judge. Robert Mueller’s violations of U.S. Department of Justice regulations and ethical requirements of the legal profession are even worse than the tongue-lashing from Judge Sullivan on April 7, 2009, in the bungled prosecution of Stevens. Mueller’s ethically-challenged lawyers did not take the lesson in Anna Stolley Persky, “A Cautionary Tale: The Ted Stevens Prosecution,” Washington Lawyer, October 2009. Because of prosecutorial misconduct in Nevada,...

    The federal probe into a 2010 land deal orchestrated by former Burlington College president Jane Sanders, wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has deepened. VTDigger has confirmed that a grand jury has been empaneled and has taken sworn testimony in the case. Former Burlington College board member Robin Lloyd says she testified for about an hour on Oct. 26 before a grand jury at the federal courthouse in Burlington. Paul Van de Graaf, chief of the criminal division for the U.S. attorney’s office in Vermont, questioned Lloyd about her role as the development chair of the college’s board of...

    The federal grand jury handing down indictments for special counsel Robert Mueller doesn’t appear to include any supporters of President Donald Trump, according to one witness who recently testified before the panel. “The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally,” my source said. “Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley [Calif.]”

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury is investigating a prominent Democratic lobbyist and a former GOP congressman for their involvement in an influence campaign on behalf of Ukrainian interests tied to Paul Manafort, according to a person with direct knowledge of the investigation. At the center of the widening probe are Tony Podesta, a longtime Democratic operative, and Vin Weber, a former GOP congressman and leader of his own high-powered lobbying firm, Mercury LLC. The two men were hired as part of a multimillion-dollar lobbying effort directed by Manafort and longtime associate Rick Gates.

    "...a scandalous expression of how justice works in America..." The already tense relationship between Turkey and the United States further deteriorated Friday after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan lambasted a U.S. grand jury that brought charges against 19 people, including 15 members of Erdogan’s security detail. The 19 suspects had allegedly been caught kicking, beating and harassing protesters during a peaceful demonstration in Washington, D.C. in May. Erdogan accused the grand jury of engaging in a scandal and harshly criticized the American justice system.

    On this 200th day of the Trump Administration, the 45th presidency is under assault as few legitimately elected governments in free stable nations have ever been. The weapon of choice is, as Jeff Sessions' Justice Department has very belatedly recognized, the leak. There are three kinds of leak: The first is the palace-intrigue stuff: Spicer loathes Scaramucci, Scaramucci hates Priebus, Priebus despises Bannon, etc. The second is the drip-drip-drip of the "Russia investigation": Robert Mueller has empaneled a grand jury, he's looking into eight-year-old Trump property deals, he's going to flip Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort... The third is the...
  • SCALIA ON 'A GRAND JURY BY US' (IT IS NOT ONLY FOR MUELLER OR COURTS TO MAKE)

    08/06/2017 7:23:52 AM PDT · by Hostage · 33 replies
    Rooted in long centuries of Anglo-American history, the grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It `is a constitutional fixture in its own right.' In fact, the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional Government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people. Although the grand jury normally operates, in the courthouse and under judicial auspices, its institutional...

    “It gives the prosecutor the power to indict in the District of Columbia, which is a district that is heavily Democratic, and would have a jury pool very unfavorable to Trump and the Trump Administration,” said Dershowitz, a Democrat who has at times defended Trump against what he sees as an overzealous collusion investigation. “It gives the prosecutor a tremendous tactical advantage,” he continued, asserting that the District of Columbia “is always solidly Democratic and has an ethnic and racial composition that might be very unfavorable to the Trump Administration.” “So I see the significance not so much that he...

    Grand jury subpoenas have been issued in connection with the June 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr., a Russian lawyer and others, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday. The sources also said special counsel Robert Mueller had convened a grand jury in Washington to investigate allegations of Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections. The grand jury began its work in recent weeks and is a sign that Mueller's inquiry into Russia's efforts to influence the election and whether it colluded with President Donald Trump's campaign is ramping up, the Journal said.

    A newly-obtained memo written during special counsel Kenneth Starr's investigation of President Bill Clinton rejects a commonly held view that a sitting president can't be indicted, The New York Times reported. The discovery adds a possible new wrinkle into the investigation into Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign. The memo has been locked away in the National Archives since 1998, but was obtained by the Times' Charlie Savage through a Freedom of Information Act request, and represents a thorough analysis of the opinion, the newspaper reported Saturday. According to the findings, the memo concludes that "no one, even President Clinton,...
