Former federal prosecutor Elie Honig went on CNN Friday to predict major fireworks from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe in the coming months — and then laid out which Trump associates were in the most danger of being indicted.
“2019 is going to be an explosive year,” he said. “I think it’s going to make 2018 look like a brisk warm up.”
Honig then analyzed the most likely indictments of Trump associates who may have conspired with Russian agents to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
“I would start with Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi,” he said. “Both of them have said publicly they expect to be indicted, and I think they might be right. Both of them were conduits between WikiLeaks and, to some extent, the Trump campaign, so I think they could both be in trouble for that and for lying about that.”
Honig also predicted Donald Trump Jr. could soon be in legal hot water.
“Donald Trump Jr. needs to be a little bit worried on a couple bases,” he said. “When Michael Cohen pled guilty a few weeks ago to making the hush-money payments, the campaign finance violations, the papers referenced ‘Executive-1’ and ‘Executive-2’ within the Trump Organization. Either of those are Donald Trump Jr. He also has potential exposure to lying to Congress about the Moscow project.”

‘Worst nightmare for the White House’: CNN reporter says latest impeachment testimony has left GOP scrambling
CNN reporter Jamie Gangel on Tuesday suggested that Republican lawmakers are attacking the Democrats' impeachment inquiry process because they are increasingly finding they cannot defend President Donald Trump on the substance of his actions.
During an interview with host Brooke Baldwin, Gangel said that the White House is particularly dreading any future testimony provided by former national security adviser John Bolton, who reportedly denounced Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani's shadow campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden as a "drug deal."
CNN’s Avlon demolishes Trump’s three biggest Syria lies that are getting the Kurds killed
On Tuesday, CNN's John Avlon laid into President Donald Trump for his lies about Syria — lies which, he noted, have a terrible human cost.
"War and peace. Life and death," said Avlon. "And that’s the power of the presidency. And that’s what we’re seeing in Syria right now. Where President Trump’s impulsive order to remove U.S. troops after a call with Turkey’s autocrat is causing chaos and slaughter. And it’s given an anticipated victory to four American adversaries, Russia, Iran, the Syrian government and Islamic State."
"Who could have seen this coming? Basically anyone who was paying attention, except, apparently, President Trump," continued Avlon. "And so, faced with the real-time consequences of his actions, he’s defaulting to his comfort zone: A pattern of disinformation."
CNN panel stunned after Bakari Sellers calls Tulsi Gabbard ‘a puppet for the Russian government’
Bakari Sellers shocked his fellow CNN panelists on Tuesday when he called Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) a puppet for the Russian government.
During a discussion of Tuesday's upcoming Democratic primary debate, Sellers accused Gabbard of being fundamentally different from all the other candidates on the stage, and he darkly hinted that she has loyalties in places other than the United States.
"There is a chance that Tulsi is not just working for the United States of America, but I digress," he said.
"Wait a minute, what?" a shocked April Ryan asked.
Sellers then went on to elaborate his accusations.
