Take Trump to Court!

As Trump leaves Washington to play 17 continuous days playing golf at one of his golf clubs in Bedminster, New Jersey, at extra security expense to the taxpayers, at least someone is moving forward at their job there. Robert Mueller impanels the grand jury in the Russia investigation into campaign tampering. He is also investigating any possible collusion between Russia and Trump and whether the President himself engaged in obstruction of justice. Yes, the investigation gets much closer to Trump. For once there will be a lot of Americans that wish they had jury duty on this case. Americans are fed up with all this Russia crap. I don’t know how they will be able to find unbiased people to serve on that jury since unless you have been living under a rock, the election nonsense seems to never stop cropping up in the news every day.
This news means that the investigation into Russian medaling brings things up to another level in importance. Grand juries are powerful investigative tools that allow prosecutors to subpoena documents, put witnesses under oath and seek indictments, if there is evidence of a crime. It doesn’t mean that there is going to be a trial yet but it is a serious step forward into providing closure on all this crap to the American people. We all need to know the real facts to provide some closure. In only months in office our President should not be under investigations for crimes but Trump has lied so much about so many things, it would be good to finally take some steps to clarify the possible obstruction of justice that is a serious crime in this country.
Will this result in the end of the Trump Administration? If so, then I will have time to write about other important subjects involving corruption as Serpico the cop exposed in the New York City Police Department.  As Trump and Congress leaves Washington to go on vacations, it seems that Mueller and his team are the only ones in Washington working. So where in this country can they possibly have a trial where the jury doesn’t know about Trump? Legal experts said that Washington would be the appropriate place to convene a grand jury to examine actions taken by Trump since he became president and took up residence at the White House. Many of the crimes Mueller is investigating would have taken place in the district. Washington is the place where the Trump aids or advisors made false statements and disclosure records or lied to Federal agents. It is all like a bad movie where all the scenes take place in the same place.

All of Trump’s lawyers are saying the same thing that they do not believe that the President is under investigation. His lawyers are John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow.  Senators have unveiled two proposals to protect Mueller’s Russia probe just in case Trump decides to fire Jeff Sessions and Mueller from their jobs too.
