Members of the sweeping federal investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller requested the White House submit documents linked to Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to the paper, citing authorities close to the investigation. The special counsel couldn't be removed absent a finding of good cause, including misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest and violation of Justice Department policies. The meeting had been brokered by British publicist, Rob Goldstone, who has worked with the Trumps in the past.

Cobb also told reporters that, "Grand jury matters are typically secret", and the White House "is committed to fully cooperating with Mr. Mueller".

Moscow has denied any effort to influence the election, and Trump has disputed any allegations of collusion between his associates and Russia. On the other, however, with North Korea becoming incandescent and an increasingly agitated Iran, the last thing the US needs is another Cold War (or one at any temperature, for that matter).

Even Ty Cobb, the President's lawyer, said he welcomed anything that "accelerates the conclusion" of Mr Mueller's work fairly.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders noted that former FBI Director James Comey repeatedly said Trump was not under investigation earlier this year. "There never were. We didn't win because of Russia, we won because of you", he said.

As Levin reviewed the details of the grand jury and news of subpoenas being issued, it became abundantly clear that details of the investigation are being leaked to the media to harm the president politically.

A grand jury is a group of ordinary citizens who consider evidence of potential criminal wrongdoing a prosecutor is investigating and decides whether charges should be brought.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury to investigate Russia's interference in the 2016 US election, in what amounts to a dramatic escalation of the continuing scandal. In an interview with the New York Times, Trump affirmed that the special counsel would cross a "red line" if he looked into "family finances, unrelated to Russia". One bill by Sens.
