Judge Napolitano: Trump Jr. Telling Friends He Expects Indictment
By Sandy Fitzgerald
Donald Trump Jr. has told his friends privately that he expects to be indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller, Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano claimed in an interview on Wednesday.
“I don’t know who, but I do know that Donald Jr. has told friends he expects to be indicted,” Napolitano told Sirius XM “Live PD” executive producer Dan Abrams, who also serves as chief legal analyst for ABC News, reports Mediaite.
Napolitano said he also expects Trump’s oldest son will be indicted, but he was less sure about Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.
Meanwhile, the judge said he thinks it is a “huge deal” that former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is still reportedly cooperating with Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Earlier this week, Mueller’s team, in a court filing, said Flynn provided so much information to the special counsel’s Russia investigation that prosecutors say he shouldn’t do any prison time, according to a court filing Tuesday. It also called Flynn’s cooperation “substantial.”
Flynn could face between zero and six months in prison and up to a $9,500 fine for lying to the FBI.
He also commented that the “president himself should be extremely uncomfortable” about a raid on Deutsche Bank last week, saying it could possibly be linked to Mueller’s investigation, notes Newsweek.
“Who is the principle financier of the Trump organization for the past 20 years? Deutsche Bank,” said Napolitano.
“Now, I don’t know if there’s a connection. You know the means by which means American federal prosecutors could contact their colleagues across the pond and get a warrant served. All this stuff is kept under wraps until we get to it.”
Trump should be concerned about the raid “not for his son or son-in-law, as much as for himself,” said Napolitano.
