Anybody who thinks Mueller is wrapping up doesn’t know what they are talking about…
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s Washington-based grand jury has been granted an extension days before it was set to expire by the head judge on the federal district court for the District of Columbia.
Lisa Klem, special assistant to Chief Judge Beryl Howell, confirmed for The Hill that the grand jury has been extended and can continue to sit, but she did not provide any length of time for the extension.
CNN reported Friday that that the federal grand jury had been extended by six months, but Klem said the court has not confirmed an end date or length of extension, including to CNN.
The special counsel’s office declined to comment on the extension.
Sunday will mark 18 months since the federal grand jury was impaneled on July 6, 2017. Under the rules for federal criminal procedure, a federal grand jury can can only serve up to 18 months unless the court determines that an extension is in the public interest.
The rules, however, say an extension can’t be granted for more than six months.
The Wall Street Journal first reported in early August 2017 that Mueller had impaneled a grand jury in D.C. as he investigates Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election…..
Michael Flynn seems to dropped off the grid, eh?
