While Robert Mueller has yet to touch any member of President Trump’s family, one Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee believes that at least two family members will be indicted. Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Monday that he thinks that both Donald Trump Jr. and the President’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner will eventually be indicted as a part of the Mueller probe.
Explaining to Blitzer that he thinks the White House is scared, Cohen stated the following: “I think they’re getting closer to knowing that the truth is going to come out that there was activities with the Trump campaign and Russia in releasing those hacks and guiding them to the states and the localities where they came from,” he said. “Some of that was Jared Kushner’s responsibilities, some of it was Donald [Trump] Jr. I think you’re probably going to see indictments of both of those people.”
CNN’s Blitzer appeared a bit surprised at the statement. After all, Cohen is part of the House Judiciary Committee, which has been responsible for investigating Russian interference in our election. Blitzer followed up, asking Cohen if he had any proof that either man would be indicted. Cohen responded as follows:
“It’s a serious charge, Wolf, and time will show whether I’m correct or not,” he said. “But I believe I am correct… if it walks like a duck, if it swims like a duck, if it quacks like a duck, it’s a duck. And you can see where it’s going.”
