Grand jury testimony is forever secret.

So...what scores may Bannon have to settle?

Hyperbole to make it sound like you're being hyperbolic.
It generates a lot of stars.

That they want him to answer questions from a grand jury means they are considering using him as a witness against their target. Guess it depends on his answers. He cannot refuse to answer without invoking the fifth. No executive privilege is allowed.
This is the first time Mueller is having the grand jury hear testimony in his investigation.

I think the rules about lying and Muellers affinity for the truth have been laid out pretty clearly. The examples he made of Manafort and Flynn guarantees everybody else just tells the truth to the best of their ability. Or they are very very stupid.

You will never hear his testimony if he does appear before a grand jury. He will at that time become a material witness and a tool of the prosecution in building a case against their target. (trump).

My first impression of Bannon was that he was a drunk... he certainly looks the part.

I guess we will see what comes of this.

Bannon might be able to shed a great deal of light on the use of Cambridge Analytics, which is also the overlap between Jared, the Mercers, and the Russian-Cyber assistance


That he just added a cyber crime expert to his team within the last few weeks makes sense in this respect to this.

Slowest investigation ever. Maybe they don't want Trump out. They have definitely had time to think about it. Put it off till midterms to really confuse stuff. Then nothing.



Congressman Trey Gowdy said pretty much the same thing tonight. With over 200 staffers and 12 full-time attorneys, why is the Mueller investigation taking so long, while yielding so little?


How long is the average special council case?

How do you know what an ongoing case has yielded? Is required to brief the public?


You'll have to ask Trey Gowdy. He knows more than we do.

Since Bob Mueller is Witch Hunting, he might try to find sinister doings within Breitbart.

And that's all the proof anyone should need to know this investigation is dead in the water. Bannon... LOL

Watergate investigations took 2 years


Watergate pales in comparison to what you all did to Trump with Fusion GPS,the FBI,DOJ, and media collusion, and a sitting president with unwarranted surveillance.

Not always...but for the most part, it is hard to obtain transcript or recording of the testimonies given in a GJ.

And it's sort of for good reason, too--the standard for evidence in a GJ is dramatically lower than that of an actual trial, so if people were privy to that type of evidence prior to indictment and trial, it could taint the jury of the possible upcoming trial and cause problems with needing a change in venue and all of that fun stuff.

But the reality is that your statement is too black-and-white--GJ testimony is not "forever secret" all of the time, in every instance.

Wow, you are sure making a lot of big assumptions for someone who misrepresents how GJ testimony is always handled.

Bannon has severe credibility issues and also has motive to lie--ANY defense counsel, especially one that Trump would hire on his behalf, would have a field day with destroying Bannon's credibility and negating his testimony, unless there is hard evidence to support it. And with that in mind, just like with everything else, it becomes a wait-and-see game.

That probably would not be a difficult task.

I liked Breitbart when it first started up and was actually exposing "the other side" of stories that allowed one to get a better picture of an issue. But, once Andrew Breitbart died, it quickly turned into a tabloid rag that sometimes gets it right, but even then, there's too much spin.

I think that what integrity it did have when it started up quickly faded, and I'm sure that it happened behind the scenes as much as in front of, too.

Yes just yes.


Secrecy. Grand jury proceedings are secret. No judge is present; the proceedings are led by a prosecutor; and the defendant has no right to present his case or (in many instances) to be informed of the proceedings at all. While court reporters usually transcribe the proceedings, the records are sealed.

Trey Gowdy...
Who is on tv today telling the president if you don't stop telling people not to answer our questions we will never get finished with this investigation.
That Trey Gowdy?

He's not investigating Bannon obviously. You can't have a grand jury question your target.
He's making Bannon a tool. Using him to get to a target.
