Earlier, we reported that Robert Mueller, the special investigator looking into the Russia collusion story had impaneled a grand jury, signaling that there seems to be a there there.
Reuters is now breaking an even bigger story regarding that grand jury.

This is a very big deal as it appears there could be something to that meeting that 1) we/the media have not seen and 2) is pretty damaging to one of the individuals involved.
Here’s the thing about Donald Jr.’s statements and admissions, not to mention the email revelations: no one has any sort of legal protection here. There is no confidentiality because there do not seem to be any lawyers involved. That means that whoever gets subpoenaed is going to be vulnerable here, and you can bet the investigators know this.
This could end up being very bad for someone.
