McCabe has told colleagues that he's also a potential witness in the probe of whether Trump broke the law by trying to thwart the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. Under our law, a grand jury may conduct a probe simply to satisfy itself that no crimes have been committed. The Wall Street Journal leaked that one has been set up in Washington by Mueller. He has also suggested that he might attempt to fire Mueller, a former FBI director whose investigation falls under the purview of the Department of Justice.
"They're trying to cheat you out of the leadership you want with a fake story that is demeaning to all of us and most importantly demeaning to our country and demeaning to our Constitution".
A grand jury is a group of ordinary citizens who, working behind closed doors, considers evidence of potential criminal wrongdoing that a prosecutor is investigating and decides whether charges should be brought.
According to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's letter appointing Mueller, he is authorized to investigate any links or coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government and "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation".
To Australia's prime minister, Trump complains that a deal on asylum seekers makes him look bad and says he had a more pleasant conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The President offered a political argument - not a legal one - for why the Russian Federation story was "a total fabrication" on a day of dizzying revelations about the probe, that heaped fresh pressure on his beleaguered White House.
"The reason why Democrats only talk about the totally made up Russian Federation story is because they have no message, no agenda, and no vision", said the president.
The use of a grand jury, a standard prosecution tool in criminal investigations, suggests that Mueller and his team of investigators are likely to hear from witnesses and demand documents in the coming weeks and months.
Democratic National Committee CEO Jess OConnell said the grand jury was a further confirmation that this was not a "witch hunt". He argued that "what the prosecutors should be looking at are Hillary Clinton's 33,000 deleted emails".

While Ty Cobb, special counsel to the president, also said he did not know that Mueller had called a grand jury, he stressed the White House would comply with the federal investigation.
"You don't impanel a grand jury if you only have smoke".
"When someone gets a subpoena to testify, that can drive home the seriousness of the investigation", said David Sklansky, a professor at Stanford Law School and a former federal prosecutor. They're hanging on to one cause for optimism: the appointment of John Kelly as White House chief of staff, which several GOP senators said they hope will calm the chaos on the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue. Nevertheless, I believe it is secondary - decidedly so - in this case.
