Just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any worse… it does.
Well, “worse” if you’re Trump.
Because just 45 minutes after WSJ reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury in Washington to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections, Reuters is out with this:
BREAKING: Grand jury subpoenas have been issued related to June 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Russian lawyers and others – sources pic.twitter.com/r8AVLhJCxt

That’s right folks, grand jury subpoenas have been issued in connection with the now infamous meeting between Trump Jr. and Russian go-betweens.
Don’t forget that Kushner and Trump Jr. have backed themselves into a corner, having both denied that anything nefarious went on at that meeting despite the fact that it was attended by a former KGB operative.
Additionally, Trump hasn’t shown a penchant for being loyal to the folks around him. So one wonders, when push comes to shove, if some folks won’t fold under pressure knowing that he would turn on them in a second if the shoe was on the other foot.
Oh, and you’re reminded of what we said just 30 minutes ago:
Clearly, this suggests Mueller is going to start issuing subpoenas and calling witnesses.
