Based on the confirmed news about Robert Mueller having filed criminal charges in Trump’s Russia scandal, we pretty much that one or more of Trump’s people will be arrested on Monday.
The $64,000 question now is who exactly is getting arrested. Several developments on Friday pointed to Michael Flynn, while others pointed to former Trump campaign chair, Paul Manafort.
However, an FBI insider now says that the most likely individual to be arrested on Monday is someone MUCH closer to Trump himself.
Scott Dworkin of the Democratic Coalition revealed on Saturday afternoon that he
“was just told by attorney who used to work at FBI that Jared Kushner is most likely the one being arrested Monday.”
Dworkin cautioned that
“My bet’s still Manafort.”
As the Palmer Report pointed out earlier today, new details about jurisdiction seem to point to criminal charges being simultaneously or successively filed against multiple individuals across multiple grand juries – so it’s entirely possible that we’re looking at multiple arrests.
Trump has spent the last few days trying to draw attention away from Russia and back to Hillary Clinton. He’s also tried to publicly distance himself from Paul Manafort, despite Manafort having been his campaign chairman and campaign manager.
Trump is closer to Michael Flynn, who not only served in the campaign, but went on to become Trump’s White House National Security Adviser before being forced out in scandal. Trump would likely take the Flynn news harder.
But Ivanka’s hubby, Jared Kushner is even closer and his arrest would send Trump over the edge.
So, now we wait. We’ll see who gets arrested on Monday, if anyone. Based on the legal experts the Palmer Report has spoken with, it’s highly likely that even Trump’s own associates don’t yet know if they’re about to be the ones who are arrested.
It’s also highly likely that Trump himself doesn’t yet know.
