NY prosecutors convene grand jury that could indict Donald Trump

Manhattan’s district attorney has convened a grand jury that could decide whether or not former President Donald Trump, or other executives of the Trump Organization, will face charges, The Washington Post reports.

The panel will sit three days a week for six months and will hear evidence regarding several matters during a term set to be longer than a traditional New York state grand-jury assignment, according to people familiar with the matter speaking to The Post.

“The move indicates that District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr.’s investigation of the former president and his business has reached an advanced stage after more than two years,” The Post’s Shayna Jacobs and David A. Farenthold write. “It suggests, too, that Vance believes he has found evidence of a crime — if not by Trump then by someone potentially close to him or by his company.”
