President Trump used to call the Russia probe a “Witch Hunt” in his tweets. But he doesn’t refer to the Russia probe anymore.
As DML News reported yesterday, the president now sends the special counselor friendly communications, telling Mr. Mueller he is “appreciated.”
Then, of course, there was the raid on Paul Manafort at a time when his lawyer was cooperating with Mueller.
As we reported last night, according to Judge Napolitano of Fox News, the raid proves there is something there and that Mueller will be making an indictment at some point. The judge also explained that the Russia probe is now a criminal investigation and that Manafort will be used as a vehicle to get to someone higher up the chain. “They can indict him on anything, it doesn’t have to be related to the existing probe. And then, they offer him freedom, or a lesser sentence, to give up information about someone or something else,” said Napolitano.
In other words, they use Manafort to get information about the president and/or his family, e.g. Jared Kushner or his sons. Remember, Trump warned Mueller not to go after the Trump Organization. The next day, Mueller went after the banks that do business with the Trump Organization.
According to Napolitano, Mueller is running a clean, aggressive, by-the-book criminal investigation. So, the question is, will he end up indicting one of the Trump family members, including the president?
