The Wall Street Journal reported that the jury is expected to continue their work on Monday, following testimony about the Trump investigation last week. The grand jury has reportedly been working on the Trump case, in addition to unrelated issues.
Though Trump himself had hinted at a possible indictment and arrest last week, it never came to fruition. However, prosecutors in the case could call on additional witnesses in the case or follow up with formal charges. The Journal reported that because the grand jury's process is being conducted in secret, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has yet to provide a timeline for the case.
However, the potential indictment has not scared Trump away. During his rally in Waco, Texas on Saturday, he alluded to the idea that the district attorney's office is pursuing this case because of pressure coming out of Washington, DC. He also mentioned that the justice system has been weaponized against him.
Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) was reportedly briefed on Sunday by the FBI about possible threats of violence that may erupt should Trump be indicted.
The Journal also noted that Republican chairmen of three different House committees sent letters to Bragg that requested more information on the Stormy Daniels investigation, noting that the House Judiciary Committee was seriously considering drafting legislation that would exempt current and local presidents from "improper state and local prosecutions."
On Sunday, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) called into question Bragg's authority in investigating a presidential candidate.
"We believe that he should come explain to us exactly what he’s investigating, because, at the end of the day, this is a presidential candidate," Comer said. "Clearly, if there was a reason for prosecution, it should be done by the Department of Justice on the federal level."
A spokeswoman for Bragg referred to the committees' inquiry as "unprecedented," according to the report.
"We evaluate cases in our jurisdiction based on the facts, the law and the evidence," she said. "It is not appropriate for Congress to interfere with pending local investigations."
