‘We’re going to see more indictments in 2019’: Watch ex-prosecutor explain what’s next for Mueller investigation

Published

on

Former federal prosecutor Maya Wiley predicted more indictments by prosecutors in 2019 during a New Year’s Day appearance on MSNBC with anchor Kristen Welker.

“We turn now to the Russia investigation, a story that will undoubtedly continue to dominate headlines this year,” Welker noted.

Welker referenced a new analysis from MSNBC contributor Daniel Goldman, a former federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York.

“What we are learning is that there may have been a much larger conspiracy to provide sanctions relief to Russia either in return for personal business and financial benefits or in return for assistance in the campaign,” Goldman argued.

“Knowing what we know — and if you can read between the tea leaves — where is this investigation heading?” Welker asked. “And how expansive is it right now?”

“Look, this investigation I do not believe is over,” Wiley predicted.

Wiley also served as a federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York.

“I don’t think we are at the point where there’s a wrap up and a report in which it’s all tied together in a neat bow,” she said.

Wiley suggested we look to what has not been revealed in federal court filings to understand the current state of the investigations by the Southern District and special counsel Robert Mueller.

“I think if it were, we wouldn’t see so many redacted documents in sentencing memos from the Mueller team, we would have more information there,” Wiley explained. “There are investigations they are protecting.”

“What we have seen in 2018 essentially is a roller coaster of indictments, of pleas, of finding out that there were back door deals — for instance with Paul Manafort saying he was going to be cooperating and then not and sharing information with the White House,” she reminded.

“This is an investigation that I think is going to be rolling, but we are going to get a lot more information and we are going to see more indictments in 2019,” she concluded.

“More indictments, that is your prediction — that is a strong prediction,” Welker noted.

‘Hell no’: Texans join forces to stop Trump from stealing their land

Published

President Donald Trump's pledge to build a wall at the southern border with Mexico has been a huge winner with his base. But there is one group of people who are not happy: the Texans who actually live in the region where the wall would be built.

According to the Washington Post, many people in the region have no intention of letting the federal government seize their land to construct the wall, like Afghanistan war veteran Salvador Castillo of Brownsville, who received a letter from officials demanding unlimited access to and use of his land, which gradually escalated into a lawsuit.

Team Trump wants to steal another election — and there’s only one way to beat them back

Published

When I was growing up at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, back in the early 1960s, my mother drove down to Kansas City one morning to go shopping and have lunch with an old friend of her mother’s. Ladies going out shopping and having lunch in the upscale Country Club Plaza in Kansas City was almost a formal occasion. I remember she put on a summery suit and heels and stockings, and I’m pretty sure she wore a pair of white cotton gloves.

When she returned a few hours later, she wasn’t carrying any bags from the shops, and she was seething. The woman she’d eaten lunch with was married to a man who owned a chain of downtown hotels in major cities around the country. They lived in a big Tudor house in Mission Hills, the Beverly Hills of the Midwest. She drove a Cadillac. She was rich.
