Trump-Friendly Witness In Russia Probe Cries Foul: Grand Jury Is Too Black For ‘Fair Shake’


As the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller rolls along into another year, it seems that some of the people who’ve been called before one of the numerous grand juries Mueller has convened in both Virginia and Washington, D.C. are now whining about their time in the witness chair.

Richard Johnson of the New York Post recently spoke with a source who told him what one witness who testified said this was his impression of the jury pool he faced:

“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 [Ca].”

How appropriate that anyone who happens to have been subpoenaed in the Trump case would try to call into question the makeup of a grand jury based solely on race.

The same witness also told Johnson that of the 20 jurors, 11 are African-Americans and two were wearing “peace” T-shirts. And the witness quickly added:

“There was only one white male in the room, and he was a prosecutor.”

No doubt he’d have felt a lot more at ease if a couple of the jurors had been wearing white KKK hoods and T-shirts emblazoned with the message, “Long Live The Confederacy.”

All of this led the snowflake Trumpkin witness to conclude:

“That room isn’t a room where POTUS gets a fair shake.”

You mean kinda like the “fair shake” given by Trump to so many people over the years, such as when he called for the immediate execution of the Central Park Five, all of whom were wrongly convicted and exonerated for the 1989 rape of a white woman as she jogged through a park in Manhattan?

Or would it be more like the other “fair shake” Trump called for when he repeatedly led chants of “lock her up” even though Hillary Clinton had been cleared by the FBI, which is a hell of a lot more than he can say?

If Trump wants a fair shake, he should resign and leave the country. Maybe Russia would have him.
