Special counsel says D.C. grand jury on Trump documents case has ended

The grand jury that special counsel Robert Mueller has been using to investigate President Donald Trump and his associates has concluded its work, according to a court filing by Mueller’s office.

The special counsel’s office released a statement Friday saying that the grand jury “has completed its work in the investigation concerning documents related to the Trump campaign and possible foreign influence.”

Mueller’s office has been using the grand jury, which was empaneled in August 2017, to issue subpoenas and collect evidence in its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible coordination with Trump’s campaign. The grand jury also served as a tool for Mueller to bring charges in related cases.

It is unclear whether the grand jury will be reconvened should other related matters arise. The statement did not offer any further information, including whether the outcome of the grand jury’s work was made available to the public.
