Special Counsel Robert Mueller has kept the details of his investigation into popular vote loser Donald Trump’s ties to Russia very private, even as he’s handed down a handful of indictments and arrests already. Another investigator, however, looks like he’s hinting that there are more arrests to come, very soon.
Sen.Richard Blumenthal is a member on the House Judiciary Committee, which is conducting an investigation into whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in rigging the 2016 presidential election.
News has now surfaced from the New York Times that the Trump-Russia investigation was kicked started when Trump campaign adviser (who Trump claims was “low level”, despite the fact that he wasn’t) George Papadopoulos got drunk and started bragging about colluding with Russia to an Australian diplomat.
When this news broke to the public, Sen. Blumenthal spoke out with what he expects to happen next, which is not good news for Trump all involved.
Sen. Blumenthal said: “Trump denial of Russian collusion rotten at core and doomed to unravel. Expect more serious convictions and indictments early in 2018 as Special Counsel climbs ladder of criminal culpability – and more panicky, preemptive attacks from Republicans.”
Richard Blumenthal had much more to say on the matter, including what a sabotaging role Republicans are playing in the investigation:
“Americans will rightly see through these insidious attacks as political pandering and preemptive ambush. Republican slandering squanders all pretense of high ground and respect for rule of law. Republicans will reap what they sow – and rue their demagogic broadside backstabbing of FBI and American law enforcement.”
Most Americans have already seen through it, Mr. Blumenthal. It’s indeed your GOP counterparts we’re waiting on to catch up.
