5. So


1) This is a federal grand jury? Doubt it, he controls all of the federal prosecutors

2) State/County grand jury? Unlikely


In the history of the US no President has been indicted by a Grand Jury out of respect for the Separation of Power clause of the Constitution. The "grand jury" for the President of the US is the House of Representatives.

This would be a terrible precedent if it were true because it would mean that grand juries could indict Democratic Presidents. If you think that actions like this work only against Republicans then you are very naive.

It is an ironic contradiction to Mensch's tweet however because she has already stated that an indictment is already in hand. I doubt either one of them are bright enough to realize that they are now contradicting each other in their effort to create fiction to drive their fans ardor.
