There are some Trump supporters out there who aren’t too happy with the jury selection in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. According to Page Six, there’s been some talk that special counsel Robert Mueller’s federal grand jury is too black.
A Trump associate, who recently testified before the panel, said that the racial makeup of the jury didn’t benefit the president at all. “The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally,” the witness told Page Six. “Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley.”
The source added, “That room isn’t a room where POTUS gets a fair shake.”
The witness apparently has some concerns that 11 of the 20 jurors are African-Americans, and two of them were reportedly rocking “peace T-shirts.” The witness also complained that there “was only one white male in the room, and he was a prosecutor.” Now Roomies, let’s keep it real… this doesn’t come as a surprise to us considering the percentage of black people in Washington, D.C. I mean it is affectionately known as “Chocolate City,” right?
The purpose of the grand jury is to look into Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. The investigation is currently deciding whether or not there’s probable cause to proceed with any possible charges.
Roommates, what do y’all think? Is this just another attempt to try to discredit the whole Russia investigation?
