Now that the midterm election is history, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is preparing to start issuing indictments once again, and that means some very big names are going to be appearing in court and surrendering to federal authorities. We may also soon see Mueller’s final report.
Bloomberg is reporting that the special counsel is on the verge of letting us know what his investigation has found regarding the 2016 election:
“Mueller is expected to soon produce some investigative findings on collusion and obstruction of justice, according to two U.S. officials with knowledge of the matter who asked to not be identified speaking about the probe.”
You might be wondering, who is next on the list of those who will be indicted by the Mueller team? Some of the names will certainly grab your attention:
Corey Lewandowski: Lewandowski was head of the Trump campaign immediately before Paul Manafort. It seems logical to say that Lewandowski might also be on the list of people who are wrapped up in the conspiracy to rig the 2016 election.
Donald Trump Jr.: Remember that Don Jr. agreed to meet with Russian nationals who said they had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. He, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort had that meeting at Trump Tower, which is itself proof of a conspiracy.
Steve Bannon: Bannon has said he will cooperate fully with Mueller, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be indicted as a co-conspirator in the Russia probe. Also, he may not have been quite as cooperative as he’s led us to believe.
Jared Kushner: There’s no shortage of crimes Kushner can be charged with, and they range from money laundering to directly contacting Russian officials for information detrimental to Hillary Clinton. No matter what he does or how much he agrees to assist Mueller, Kushner will definitely be indicted.
Donald J. Trump: The Big Kahuna. Some legal experts say Mueller won’t indict Trump; others say he has no choice but to indict him if the evidence points in that direction. Even if he isn’t directly indicted, it’s a safe bet that Trump will be named as an unindicted co-conspirator, and that alone would be enough to kick off impeachment hearings.
There’s about to be flurry of activity in the Russia investigation, and all of it seems to point to Donald Trump’s guilt.
