With his midterm abstinence now fully off the table, experts and insiders are beginning to speculate as to the next moves by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller, who has been in charge of an investigation into the democratically held conspiracy theory of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, has been tight-lipped over the course of the last few weeks, wishing to avoid accusations of influencing the will of the American electorate. While this was certainly a welcome reprieve from the incessant #RussiaGate babbling, Robert’s return to the spotlight could be worrisome for the President.
Experts now believe that the Mueller train will be speeding up and dropping indictments all along the way…possibly starting as early as this afternoon.
New indictments from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election are expected as soon as Tuesday, CBS reports, citing multiple people with knowledge of the investigation.
Right-wing author and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi told viewers of his YouTube live-stream broadcast Monday that he’d been cooperating with the inquiry since receiving a subpoena from FBI agents at his home in August. He said he expects to be indicted by Mueller “for some form or other of giving false information” in the probe despite doing everything he could to cooperate.
Corsi’s troubles also involve another familiar face in Trump circles:
Corsi said the possible charges arose related to Roger Stone, a friend and longtime Republican operative who was a Trump campaign adviser, and his ties to Russia and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Corsi’s lawyer, David Gray, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Monday night. Mueller’s spokesman, Peter Carr, declined to comment.
There has been no word yet as to whether or not the President himself will be on Mueller’s short list of indictments in the coming weeks.
