"Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade complained Wednesday about the reported racial makeup of special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerSenate Democrats urge Garland not to fight court order to release Trump obstruction memo Why a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel MORE's grand jury, saying that the grand jury isn't even "demographically pursuing justice" because of its reported lack of white men.
Kilmeade referred to an anonymous source who told the New York Post that the grand jury room looked like a 'Black Lives Matter rally' or an event for Sen.

The source said that the only white man in the room was the prosecutor himself.
"So it's not even emblematic of something that might be, perhaps, demographically pursuing justice," the host said.
Here's Fox & Friends' Brian Kilmeade saying that Mueller isn't "demographically pursuing justice" because the federal grand jury has 11 Black jurors: pic.twitter.com/UdixHpjkgk— Melanie Schmitz (@MelsLien) January 3, 2018
“Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley [Calif.]," the New York Post's source said, claiming that 11 of the 20 jurors were African-American.
“That room isn’t a room where POTUS gets a fair shake," the source said.
The grand jury is based in Washington, D.C., where nearly 48 percent of residents in the latest Census identified as African-American. That means it wouldn't be unusual for a grand jury drawn from Washington residents to be majority African-American.
Mueller, who is investigating possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, impaneled a grand jury in August, giving him the power to subpoena documents and require testimonies from witnesses under oath.
