Grand jury will not reconvene Wednesday in Trump investigation
The grand jury in Manhattan weighing charges against former President Donald Trump did not meet Wednesday after all. Sources tell ABC News the next potential time the grand jury would convene could be as early as Thursday. The Manhattan district attorney's office has suggested to at least one attorney representing a grand jury witness that they might need to return to provide more testimony. It is unknown if that witness will ultimately be called back to provide more testimony.
