Witness says Russia probe's grand jury looks like ‘a Black Lives Matter rally'

A witness who reportedly testified before Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s federal grand jury claimed in an interview with Page Six that the jurors looked like they came from a "Black Lives Matter rally."

"The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally," the witness told the outlet. "Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley [Calif.]"
