Robert Mueller’s planned announcement of indictments relating to “The Russia Thing” has taken on the look of a film premiere.
I’m on pins and needles.
A federal grand jury reportedly is set to issue indictments based on special counsel Mueller’s intense investigation into whether the Donald J. Trump presidential campaign “colluded” with Russian hackers who sought to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
Who’s going to be indicted? Former national security adviser Michael Flynn? Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort? Might it be presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner?
Could it be all of the above?
The Trump legal team reportedly is preparing some sort of reaction to the news that’s coming Monday from the grand jury.
Of course, the president continues to insist there’s nothing to hide. He says he didn’t collude with the Russians; yet he continues to bristle publicly that Mueller is continuing this investigation at all.
My take is as it’s been for months: If the president has nothing to hide, then he should just let Mueller and his team of legal eagles do their job. If he has done nothing wrong, then the Mueller team can say so publicly.
That’s not how this president rolls, though.
Which makes me wonder: Is this guy hiding something?
Hey, let’s all stay tuned. Pass the popcorn.
