    A nonprofit that fights on behalf of journalists has asked the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., to make public filings in the fight over a mystery grand jury subpoena thought to be tied to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.In a 33-page motion filed Wednesday, The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press argued that the First Amendment and common law require at least some documents to be made available to the public. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals last month upheld a lower court order that found a foreign government-owned company in contempt and imposed a $50,000 fine...

    Washington (CNN)Special counsel Robert Mueller's federal grand jury has been extended for up to six months. The grand jury, based in Washington, DC, was seated for an 18-month term that began in July 2017 and was set to expire in the coming days. Under federal rules, the court is able to extend a grand jury's term for another six months if it is "in the public interest." House Judiciary chair says Democrats are

    (CNN)Four days after attorneys secretly argued over a grand jury subpoena suspected to be related to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 election, a federal appeals court is forcing an unnamed company to comply with the subpoena. The appeals court did not identify the company, nor did the appellate judges say the subpoena was related to the Mueller investigation. The company that sought to quash the subpoena is owned by a foreign country, the ruling Tuesday said. But the hearing Friday came after several other secretive court clashes between Mueller's team and the company that...

    Fridays at the DC federal courthouse are typically days of high alert for the press corps trying to discern what special counsel Robert Mueller's next legal action will be. But this Friday, court officials went to extreme measures to ensure it was as difficult as possible to figure out what Mueller's team was doing as the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit held a secret and mysterious argument about a grand jury subpoena challenge. An entire floor of the courthouse was closed to the public and press for more than an hour. During that time, attorneys...

    Journalists were kept away from a secret federal appeals court hearing on Friday in Washington, D.C., as officials sealed off an entire floor for arguments in a mysterious grand jury case which some believe could be related to the Special Counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections. The case – known officially as “In re: Grand Jury Subpoena” – has been sealed in its entirety when it comes to public records, as it moved from the district court to the appeals court level in recent months. Reporters at the courthouse – which is just down the hill from...

    A Grand Jury has been impaneled to investigate fired Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, according to a new report by the Washington Post. Federal prosecutors in Washington are using a Grand Jury to investigate whether McCabe purposely misguided officials over his role in unauthorized disclosures to The Wall Street Journal. The Grand Jury was impaneled months ago and so far more than one witness has been summoned who may have to testify against McCabe.

    Federal prosecutors have for months been using a grand jury to investigate former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe — an indication the probe into whether he misled officials exploring his role in a controversial media disclosure has intensified, two people familiar with the matter said. The grand jury has summoned more than one witness, the people said, and the case is ongoing. The people declined to identify those who had been called to testify. The presence of the grand jury shows prosecutors are treating the matter seriously, locking in the accounts of witnesses who might later have to testify at...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including Pittsburgh and Greensburg, has finally been released. The 884-page document, two years in the making, shines a light into the dark corners of these dioceses going back seven decades, exposing the predators and the efforts of their bishops to protect them. “Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “Pennsylvanians can finally learn the extent of sexual abuse in these dioceses. For the first time, we can...

  • Bannon Must Challenge Robert Mueller in Court (Prosecutorial Misconduct)

    01/25/2018 9:55:44 AM PST · by Moseley · 13 replies
    Prosecutorial misconduct is a serious matter. It proved fatal to the prosecution of Senator Ted Stevens in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Criminal Case No. 1:08-cr-00231-EGS, before Emmett G. Sullivan, District Judge. Robert Mueller’s violations of U.S. Department of Justice regulations and ethical requirements of the legal profession are even worse than the tongue-lashing from Judge Sullivan on April 7, 2009, in the bungled prosecution of Stevens. Mueller’s ethically-challenged lawyers did not take the lesson in Anna Stolley Persky, “A Cautionary Tale: The Ted Stevens Prosecution,” Washington Lawyer, October 2009. Because of prosecutorial misconduct in Nevada,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury is investigating a prominent Democratic lobbyist and a former GOP congressman for their involvement in an influence campaign on behalf of Ukrainian interests tied to Paul Manafort, according to a person with direct knowledge of the investigation. At the center of the widening probe are Tony Podesta, a longtime Democratic operative, and Vin Weber, a former GOP congressman and leader of his own high-powered lobbying firm, Mercury LLC. The two men were hired as part of a multimillion-dollar lobbying effort directed by Manafort and longtime associate Rick Gates.

    "...a scandalous expression of how justice works in America..." The already tense relationship between Turkey and the United States further deteriorated Friday after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan lambasted a U.S. grand jury that brought charges against 19 people, including 15 members of Erdogan’s security detail. The 19 suspects had allegedly been caught kicking, beating and harassing protesters during a peaceful demonstration in Washington, D.C. in May. Erdogan accused the grand jury of engaging in a scandal and harshly criticized the American justice system.
