Fire and Fury author: Trump and Jared will throw each other ‘under the bus’ to avoid Mueller indictments
Author Michael Wolff, whose book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House surged to the top of best seller lists, is expecting special counsel Robert Mueller to indict Jared Kushner, HuffPost UK reported Saturday.
At a Friday evening event in London, Wolff described Invanka Trump and Kushner as “the most entitled people on earth.”
He also said the couple have “not one scintilla of relevant experience to this job. Not one.”
“Do you think if the chips were down, Trump will, in the end, fire his own daughter?” host Armando Iannucci asked.
“I think that there is a pretty good possibility at this point that Jared will be indicted,” Wolff predicted.
“So the more direct question is will Trump throw his son-in-law under the bus, and then the corollary to that is, will his son-in-law throw his father-in-law under the bus?” Wolff suggested. “And I think the answer to both of those questions is ‘yes’.”
“I think you can think out to [mid-term elections in] November and I think now until then may well be the bloodiest time in this administration,” Wolff continued.
The London event continued British fascination with Trump’s Russia scandals, some of which were uncovered by former top MI6 spy Christopher Steele.
In January, Wolff told BBC radio that Trump’s scandals were likely to bring an end to the administration. The British newspaper The Guardian was one of the first to report on the contents of Wolff’s book.
