NYC prosecutor convenes grand jury, signaling charges could be coming - report

Quote:
The prosecutor overseeing the criminal probe into former President Donald Trump, his close orbit and his business has convened a grand jury that could decide on any indictments, according to a report on Tuesday.

The Washington Post first reported that Cyrus Vance, the Manhattan district attorney, recently convened the grand jury that will sit three days a week for six months. According to the Post, the grand jury will hear several matters beyond just Trump's during that time.

The investigation has been examining potential tax and bank-related fraud. Prosecutors are especially interested in whether Trump overvalued his properties and obscured debts in order to obtain valuable loans and other financial negotiations.

The convening of the grand jury indicates that Vance believes he has a case against Trump or someone else in his orbit.

Because of COVID, grand juries weren't convened in New York County for most of 2020.

This means that it is possible that an indictment will be bought against Trump or somebody closely associated with Trump.

If one is indicted, one is being charged with a felony, and is subject to arrest.

If he believed he had a case, he wouldn't need a grand jury.

In the vast majority of cases, a grand jury is needed to indict/charge a person with a felony, in the United States.

All people charged with a felony have been indicted, whether via a grand jury, or by an arrest warrant issued.

I wish our government would work this hard to find real criminals instead of going on these witch hunts.

They are pursuing a 'real criminal' or does this criminal deserve immunity for some reason?

I'm not certain, both of them enjoy the privilege that comes with being wealthy and famous.

10x seems like an exaggeration when one of them has been laundering money for Russian mobsters for decades, along with other financial crimes.

Trump is a sore loser; that's why there was the Capitol Insurrection. And the Extortionate Phone Call.

You have to commit a crime first before being labeled a criminal. Like Hillary for instance.
