Appearing on CNN’s “Smerconish” on Saturday, famous attorney Ken Starr predicted that there would probably be indictments in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s election meddling.
“Given what we do know, especially given what happened this summer with respect to the FBI’s intrusion into Paul Manafort’s condominium, in light of the revelations that we’ve seen about General Flynn, I have a sense that there will in fact be indictments,” said the former independent counsel in the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky scandals during Bill Clinton’s presidency.
Starr said, “What I find very interesting … is in light of the information that is now coming out with respect to Russian attempts to influence both the national election and 21 different states, what I expect to see is serious consideration of indicting one or more foreign nationals.”
Mueller has assembled a team of more than a dozen prosecutors and attorneys, and has assembled two grand juries to issue subpoenas and compel testimony.
The FBI raided Manafort’s home and a storage unit owned by the former Trump campaign manager this summer. Prosecutors on Mueller’s team also reportedly told Manafort they planned to indict him when they raided his home in July.
Starr became well-known during Bill Clinton’s presidency, when he served as the independent counsel in the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky scandals.
