Two lawyers that are representing clients involved with special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, have revealed whether they think Mueller will indict President Trump, based off their extensive dealings with Mueller and his team of investigators.
One of the lawyers is representing a “senior Trump administration official,” and essentially said that based on his dealing with Mueller’s team, you should expect to see an indictment for obstruction of justice.
“If I were a betting man, I’d bet against the president,” the lawyer told Politico.
The second lawyer, who also represents a senior Trump official, said Mueller could indict Trump to show how serious his findings are, even despite him believing that Mueller would have a hard time indicting the president.
“It’s entirely possible that Mueller may go that route on the theory that, as an open question, it should be for the courts to decide,” the lawyer said, “Even if the indictment is dismissed, it puts maximum pressure on Congress to treat this with the independence and intellectual honesty that it will never, ever get.”
The lawyer who said he would “bet” against Trump, said he thinks Mueller will be finishing up his probe soon, as to avoid being accused of impacting the 2018 mid terms elections.
“If he’s going to do it, I think he’ll do it in the spring,” the attorney said, “I don’t think he wants to be accused of trying to influence the election that dramatically.”
Considering the fact that these lawyers are defending their clients against Mueller’s investigation, it does not bold well for Trump that they are saying that an indictment against the President is probably coming.
