    He, along with the GJ, are investigating a possible illegality. If he feels he has enough evidence that looks like something illegal occured he will write up an indictment and ask the GJ to examine the facts and then vote to either issue a true bill on the indictment or not. Regardless of how the GJ votes the indictment is handed up to the judge. If a true bill was issued by the GJ then the case continues on to the courts for prosecution. If the GJ could not pass a true bill then that is the end of things. Fitz may, if he wishes, write a report if a true bill is not passed, but he is not required to do so. He can just pack his bags and head back to Chicago without ever making another statement on the affair.
