Robert Mueller Impanels Grand Jury In Russia Investigation

The move by Mueller means that their maybe a serious criminal investigation underway

WASHINGTON, D.C -- The Russia investigation is intensifying. 

The "Wall Street Journal" says Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in Washington, DC in the investigation of Russian meddling in the presidential election. 

It is a sign that a serious criminal investigation is underway and could stretch for months.  Mueller has more than a dozen prosecutors working for him.   The investigation includes possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign.  

Grand juries conduct their work in secret.  President Trump has regularly called the Russia investigation a "witch hunt."  Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation. 

Sessions recused himself because he was a top adviser in the Trump presidential campaign.  Mueller is a former director of the FBI.
