Don Jr should still expect an indictment in the very near future: former federal prosecutor

Published

on

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.”

Today’s docs put her in phone calls with [Michael] Cohen and Trump during the period the payment was arranged, but don’t explicitly say those calls were about the payment," Wall Street Journal White House correspondent Rebecca Ballhaus reported.

Trump picks Antonin Scalia’s son to replace disgraced former Labor Secretary: report

Published

on

On Thursday, NPR reported that President Donald Trump is naming Eugene Scalia, the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, to take over as Secretary of Labor.

Scalia, who served on the court from 1986 to his death in 2016, was known as one of the staunchest conservatives on the bench. His seat was deliberately kept vacant by Republicans for over a year to deny President Barack Obama the ability to make an appointment to it.

The Department of Labor was until this month run by former federal prosecutor Alexander Acosta, who resigned in disgrace amid renewed questions about his role in brokering a potentially illegal sweetheart plea agreement with hedge fund manager and accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
