Re: President Trump & U.S Election 2016 Investigation

The speculation is now why was he served with a Grand Jury subpoena. Apparently it’s more formal than any of the previous people he’s called upon but you’re also rarely allowed to do it to people who aren’t the targets of the investigation. It seems to put more legal consequences on the witness if they lie though.

Prosecutors generally prefer to interview witnesses before a grand jury when they believe they have information that the witnesses do not know or when they think they might catch the witnesses in a lie. It is much easier for a witness to stop the questioning or sidestep questions in an interview than during grand jury testimony, which is transcribed, and witnesses are required to answer every question.

“By forcing someone to testify through a subpoena, you are providing the witness with cover because they can say, ‘I had no choice — I had to go in and testify about everything I knew,’” said Solomon L. Wisenberg, a prosecutor for the independent counsel that investigated Bill Clinton when he was president.
