Mueller Is Getting The Handcuffs Ready For Don Jr
There has been growing indications that special counsel Robert Mueller is planning to bring more charges as part of his ongoing investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.
On Monday, John Flannery, a former New York federal prosecutor, told MSNBC that Mueller has enough evidence to prove that Donald Trump Jr. lied about the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russians who promised to have dirt on Hillary Clinton.
“The best way is you get as much testimony as you can in statements of what people say, and you look at the inconsistencies,” Flannery said. “And you look at how that compares to documents, how that compares to the testimony of others — documents are good — how it compares with tape recordings, for example, and then you judge that if a person is making a false statement you can contradict, it’s that evidence of consciousness of guilt.”
The former prosecutor said that Mueller would then have to determine what the person’s motive would be and what they’re hiding.
In the case of former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen, Flannery added, prosecutors did “everything they could to corroborate him, and they’ve said so with witnesses and tapes and exhibits and documents and evidence.”
“I think his dream team sometime in the next several weeks may do Roger Stone,” he added. “We might see Don Jr. We might see a whole series of people in the hot seat. And I think that’s what we’re looking for.”
