Jarrett on 8/2/17, "why was there no grand jury for Hillary Clinton?":

Quote:
How could downloading more than a hundred classified documents onto Clinton’s private and unsecured email server not constitute crimes under the Espionage Act? Why were five people given immunity while others invoked the Fifth Amendment, yet no grand jury was empaneled?


Jarrett on 8/3/17, "grand juries are an undemocratic farce."

Quote:
There's only one other nation in the world other than the U.S. employs a grand jury, it's Liberia. And there's a reason why, because everybody now realizes that grand juries are an undemocratic farce.



Edit: oops, forgot the links.

I wonder if he mentioned the grand jury that Bill Clinton faced. The one that lead to him being impeached. No, you say? That's so odd!

But Grand Juries are inefficient and do whatever the prosecuter says. The rest of the world has abandoned them as they are seen as unjust (not undemocratic) comittal procedings in open court in front of a magistrate are much fairer.

We would need a Constitutional amendment to end them at the Federal level. Besides, it's not like there's anything particularly noteworthy about supporting or opposing grand juries. Just that holding contrary views depending on the target is pretty dumb.
