Grand jury issues subpoenas in connection with Trump Jr., Russian lawyer meeting: sources

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A grand jury has issued subpoenas in connection with a June 2016 meeting that included President Donald Trump's son, his son-in-law and a Russian lawyer, two sources told Reuters on Thursday, signaling an investigation is gathering pace into suspected Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

The sources added that U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller had convened the grand jury investigation in Washington to help examine allegations of Russian interference in the vote. One of the sources said it was assembled in recent weeks.

Russia has loomed large over the first six months of the Trump presidency. U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia worked to tilt the presidential election in Trump's favor. Mueller, who was appointed special counsel in May, is leading the probe, which also examines potential collusion by the Trump campaign with Russia. Moscow denies any meddling and Trump denies any collusion by his campaign, while regularly denouncing the investigations as political witch hunts.

At a rally in Huntington, West Virginia, on Thursday night, Trump said: "Most people know there were no Russians in our campaign. ... We didn't win because of Russia. We won because of you."

Mueller's use of a grand jury could give him expansive tools to pursue evidence, including issuing subpoenas and compelling witnesses to testify. The Wall Street Journal earlier reported a grand jury was impaneled.

A spokesman for Mueller declined comment...

ADDENDUM: 11:05PM Federal prosecutor on NBC says this is a criminal investigation for 'collusion' and 'obstruction of justice'. Not just 'national security' issues.

More media lies without proof. Haven't you learned no one is going to pay attention to your OPs until you actually show an article with solid named sources?

Yeah like the conversations that Trump had with the Mexican President and with the Australian PM. The content was leaked right after they occurred and Trump denied they were accurate. Now months later we get the transcripts and they were exactly as leaked and 100% true. So far the leaks have been dead on and the Trump WH has been caught in lie after lie by denying them.

haven't you learned that Trump supporters don't speak for everyone?
