The grand jury, based in Washington, DC, was seated for an 18-month term that began in July 2017 and was set to expire in the coming days.
Under federal rules, the court is able to extend a grand jury's term for another six months if it is "in the public interest."




This is gettin a little tiresome.

Only because such a case is extremely complex. Hundreds of interviews and thousands of documents.

"This indicates Mueller has put a significant amount of testimony before a particular grand jury and he believes that testimony will likely result in charges within the next six months. If he needs more time, the testimony will be read from transcripts to a new grand jury."

It is only continuing because Democrats failed to take the Senate....If they had, Muller would strike up a report and they could have impeached, and convicted all wrapped with a nice bow....Now, with only the house all they can do is obstruct and impeach...The Clinton plan is going swimmingly....

Trump is on record as to his authority to end this investigation; why do think Trump has not followed through?

Do you really believe Mueller is in cahoots with Democrats?

No, there's no credible evidence that that's the case. Pretty much your fantasy life, on overdrive, displayed in public.

Except for all the Trump lies that were exposed, all the indictments/guilty pleas and all the evidence of contacts with Russian spies. Mueller has been a busy man.

How come Tony Podesta was never charged with FARA violations? Not only that, he was allowed retroactively file FARA registrations, for the same period that Manafort was working for the Podesta Group.

It's obvious that this is a witch hunt, designed to undermine a legitimately elected president.

Still waiting for that list of indictments of direct collusion between the Trump campaign, and Russian agents...Just because you guys get the vapors every time Muller hands out another traffic ticket, doesn't mean he is finding anything like that.

That is already in question. The illegal hush payments deliberately defrauded voters in the election and the Russian help was also illegal.

Traffic tickets usually end with fines and permit points. Manafort has been incarcerated for how long? Michael Cohen is getting ready to report for a three year hitch.......double parking and speeding?

Don't worry you will get your indictments. Roger Stone is next.

You realize a Senate majority is not enough to remove, right? 67 votes are required.

I didn't realize a grand jury could be held to hear things as they come up. I thought the case had to have concluded for them to bring it to the grand jury.

No one cares what you think apdst, you have shown time and time and time again, you know virtually nothing, about anything you talk about.

Wow... j-Mac I knew you believed many things that were wrong.

But to believe that... that’s really crazy.

It is just mind boggling to see how far cult trump me.ber will contort the truth (just like their draft dodging leader) to be able to support the con artist in office...
