The federal grand jury who’s working for special counsel Robert Mueller is a bit one-sided, according to a witness who recently testified. When talking to the New York Post, the anonymous source said:
“The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally.”
“Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley, California”

It would appear that 11 out of the 20 jurors are African Americans with two of them clearly stating their political allegiance because of the “peace t-shirts” they had on during proceedings.
“There was only one white male in the room, and he was a prosecutor,” according to the same source.
The Washington DC grand jury starting handing out indictments in October, first to Paul Manafort, the former campaign manager during the Republican presidential campaign, and to his business partner Rick Gates. Both were accused of money laundering and ‘forgetting’ to register as foreign agents when handling the business dealings of the former Ukrainian president. Both of them pleaded not guilty.
The source to the New York Post concluded by saying: “That room isn’t a room where POTUS gets a fair shake.”
Of course, Mr Mueller’s decision to select a grand jury from Washington D.C., where nearly 91 percent of voters in Washington D.C. voted for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, was a “tactical” decision against President Trump already.
As legal analyst Mr Alan Desrshowitz already concluded: “It gives the prosecutor the power to indict in the District of Columbia, which is a district that is heavily Democratic and would have a jury pool very unfavorable to Trump and the Trump Administration.”
“So it gives the prosecutor a tremendous tactical advantage.”
