We Now Have A Grand Jury, But Will Donald Trump Go To Jail?

Today it was announced that Robert Mueller, the former head of the FBI, has impaneled a grand jury in the Russian election interference investigation. Earlier this week, Trump reluctantly signed a sanctions bill against Russia that was overwhelmingly passed by Congress, which has infuriated the Kremlin.

It has been a pretty lousy week for The Donald, who is also faced with new polling that shows he is wildly unpopular, even with some of his former supporters. Flipping the governor of West Virginia to the GOP was a tiny victory, but that’s just spitting into the political wind at this point.

Then there was the news that he called the White House “a dump,” a statement Trump disputes.

In other bad news for The Donald, a bipartisan bill in the Senate is also advancing to protect Mueller from being fired by Trump.

Senators have raised concerns that the president might try to rearrange his administration to get rid of Mueller, who is spearheading a probe of Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election and any possible collusion between the Kremlin and members of the Trump campaign and transition teams.

Mueller’s probe has been advancing, despite the president’s attempts to discredit the probe as an illegitimate “witch hunt.” He impaneled a grand jury in D.C. a few weeks ago, according to areport out Thursday. The case has already produced subpoenas, from a grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia that issued them in relation to former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s business and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Let’s go back to the grand jury now. Historically, grand juries tend to return charges against people, other than members of law enforcement. Between the Russian probe and the examination of Trump’s business dealings over the past few decades, there is a high probability that charges will be handed down against members of the Trump family and their associates.

The question is who gets charged, who gets convicted, and who gets pardoned? I believe that Michael Flynn will cop a plea deal, Paul Manafort goes to prison, and Trump is forced to resign. Based on the vote in Congress to impose additional sanctions on Russia, if there is enough evidence to tie the Trump campaign to Russian meddling, Republicans might finally have the guts to vote to impeach him.

It’s not going to happen overnight, but The Donald’s woes are mounting, and the Republican Party wants to be rid of him before the midterms.
