Moving forward in investigation. Grand jury has power to subpoena records and compel testimony under oath. This includes tax returns. Members are secret and findings won't be known unless there is an indictment.

This investigation moving faster than I thought it would. One thing for sure, we won't know anything until grand jury issues findings. Make no mistake, grand jury is prosecutors friend.

so would he do this for no reason?  if there was nothing there, why do this for a ghost hunt?

Impaneling a grand jury seems to imply there is specific interest in something. If prosecutor has a grand jury in place, I am guessing he is looking to indict someone.

I am only guessing here. Grand jury could find no indictment.

I know if I were ever the target of a grand jury probe I would be very worried indeed....and I would close my Twitter account. Got to be among the most unsettling thing ever.

It is intimidating and prosecutor drives the bus. Everyman for himself.

Trump should be able to call executive privilege on his tax returns.

If I were Trump lawyer that's what I would argue. But executive privilege would NOT apply to the prior years before he was president. Which would be every tax return through 2016.

Also, I have another question for you Internet lawyers and real ones as well. Can or should the investigation into the President go back past the time Trump announced his candidacy? I mean should the investigation be able to look into something say 5 or 6 years ago? If so, why would that be relevant?

Not worried about them finding anything and I still believe 3 years from now Trump will be running for his second term, I am just curious.

Do you really think there won't be leaks in this case?

Honestly I don't know. But leaking grand jury info carries severe penalty. Investigation can go back before January 2017. Special prosecutor can investigate any evidence that a crime may be committed. Remember Clinton and whitewater

If I remember right Whitewater was focused on the Clinton's partners not them and it was an actual criminal case. Plus they didn’t go into Clinton’s actions prior to Whitewater.

No but whitewater happened before Clinton became president and it was part of the investigation even though the whitewater incident had happened before election

Again the investigation was not into the Clinton's but into their business partners.

The Mueller coup continues, were I Trump I would literally fire his ass and disband the coup attempt.  Republicans control Congress, this should be a no-brainer.

Watch out your supporting Trump, soon if you haven't already, will be called an ass kisser or brown noser.

No.  He may think he's pursuing justice, but I think his definition of justice is nailing a pelt on the side of the barn and accepting the praises of his buddies among the D.C. insiders.  Otherwise, he wouldn't have hired a group of Hillary supporters to investigate her opponent.
