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.”

Trump says he can ‘absolutely’ force governors to reopen churches if he decides to do so

Published

At Tuesday's coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump was pressed on whether he really has the authority to force governors to allow houses of worship to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Can you explain what authority you had in mind when you said that you would do that?" asked a reporter.

The president emphasized that he does have the power — but did not elaborate on how specifically he would do so, and added that he doesn't think he will have to.

"I can absolutely do it if I want to," said Trump. "I don't think I'm going to have to, because it's starting to open up. We need our churches and our synagogues and our mosques. We want them open, churches, synagogues, mosques, and other — we want them open and we want them open as soon as possible."
