Democratic Rep. Predicts Mueller Will Indict Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner
Rep. Steve Cohen (D- TN) thinks the Mueller indictments are going all the way to the top – or at least, very, very close to it.
Speaking with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Cohen said that in light of Rudy Giuliani‘s new comments about collusion, he thinks the special counsel is getting ever closer to unveiling the truth behind the corruption in the Trump administration.
“There was activities with the Trump campaign and Russia and releasing those hacks and guiding them to the states and the localities where they came from. Some of that was Jared Kushner‘s responsibilities. Some of it was Donald Jr. I think you’re probably going to see indictments of both of those people.”
Blitzer was visibly taken aback. “Actual indictments from Mueller specifically against who?” he asked.
“Against Donald Jr. and against Jared Kushner,” Cohen confirmed.
“You think both of them are going to be indicted by Mueller?” Blitzer asked again, seemingly trying to coax Cohen into walking back his incendiary comments.
But he didn’t. “I think that’s entirely possible and I think the president is going to go totally off his rocker, not that he’s on it now, and then issue pardons,” Cohen said. “They were probably the people that were in connection with the Russians and in conspiracy to affect the elections.”
“But do you have specific evidence?” Blitzer asked. “It’s a very serious charge.”
“If it walks like a duck, if it swims like a duck and if it quacks like a duck, it’s a duck,” Cohen replied. “You can see where it’s going.”
