Dershowitz: Mueller's DC Grand Jury Might be Bad For Trump, the Swamp Is stacking the deck

Dershowitz points out the grand jury in DC is heavily Democrat and unfavorable to President Trump.
  Doesn't sound like a fair process to me. 

NewsMax reports the decision to impanel multiple grand juries in Washington, D.C. for the government's Russia probe might be a bad sign for President Donald Trump or anyone else being investigated, attorney Alan Dershowitz said Friday.

Dershowitz spoke with WABC Radio host Rita Cosby and was asked about the existence of a second grand jury in the Department of Justice's Russia investigation that is being led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

"The second one is important because of where it is. It gives the prosecutor the power to indict in the District of Columbia, which is a district that is heavily Democratic, and would have a jury pool very unfavorable to Trump and the Trump administration," Dershowitz said.

"So it gives the prosecutor a tremendous tactical advantage. If he wants to bring a case against anybody in the administration, the case now can be brought not in Northern Virginia, which is a swing area, sometimes Democrat, sometimes Republican, but the District of Columbia, which is always solidly Democratic and has an ethnic and racial composition that might be very unfavorable to the Trump administration."
