‘Other Shoes About To Drop’ In Russia Probe, Ex-Intel Chief Says
During an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper predicted that there will be “other shoes to drop” in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.
Clapper’s remarks came after charges against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities were announced by Mueller’s office. The charges included conspiracy to defraud the United States.
Clapper suggested that more information about President Donald Trump’s financial assets could potentially come out from the investigation.
“I think there are other shoes to drop here, notably the finances,” Clapper said on “Anderson Cooper 360.” “I think that’s going to be another profound thing that’s going to come out about this. What were the financial relationships between the Trump Organization before the election and then the Trump campaign?” he added.
“Of course, as we’ve often said, Bob Mueller and his team know a lot more about all this than is out there that we know, and I think there’s much more to come. I didn’t see any announcement about closing down the investigation after this indictment,” Clapper told Anderson Cooper.
Mueller is investigating potential ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia during the 2016 election. President Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.
