They need to scour all this digital communication channels, not just email, to see who’s pulling the strings. That includes IM, Facebook, Twitter, text messages, phone numbers, etc.

If I understand the grand jury process properly, no "outsiders" testify.
This process is linited to the potential prosecutors and only discussion of the charges and the laws violated.

The Grand Jury then decides if the normal prosecution process goes forward, beginning with charges filed and an arrest...

Welcome to the Big Time David. I hope you enjoy it, along with all the other yahoo nimrod admin personnel that get a kick out of handing out users passwords.....;) Just how big are those Secret Service agents, and is the FBI Command Post really as big as it looks in pictures?
