Don Jr should still expect an indictment in the very near future: former federal prosecutor
Appearing on MSNBC, a former Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District said the Donald Trump Jr. should not rest easy because Robert Mueller didn’t indict him.
Speaking on AM Joy with host Joy Reid, former prosecutor Mimi Rocah said she fully expects that the son of President Trump will be indicted sometime in the future.
“In your view, is the confidence of Donald Trump Jr. — he’s out there, has his new beard, feeling good — should he be feeling so confident?” host Reid asked.
“No,” Rocah immediately replied. “I don’t think it’s only because of the SDNY. I’ll get to that in a second. As to the Mueller Russian piece of it, Don Jr. was never subpoenaed or charged — he hasn’t yet been charged. I’m not convinced that there is not a charge in his future as to the Russian piece.’
“But I will answer your question,” she continued. “On the Southern District of New York, he’s in clear jeopardy. Now — he’s not the president so there isn’t that debate of could he get charged. He has been implicated in a crime — the crime is this campaign finance contribution scheme which is actually the words the southern district used to describe it.”
