While Robert Mueller has been relatively quiet in recent weeks, counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance said on Saturday that it’s only a matter of time before the special counsel drops a “ton of bricks” on Trump and his associates.
On MSNBC‘s AM Joy, Joy Reid said it was highly doubtful that the long list of documented contacts between Russia and the Trump campaign happened without the president’s knowledge.
Nance agreed and said no matter what Trump and his former associates say, they won’t be able to talk their way out of their potential crimes.

What’s happening to Roger Stone and Julian Assange and all of the rest who were the bridge, as I call them, between passing Russian intelligence information from not a Russian agency, right, the internet research agency which is why Assange says wasn’t Russian government, supposedly a gray area operation. But they are the bridge between Russia and the United States. Guys like Roger Stone, for all of his experience, he has no idea the ton of bricks that is about to come down on his head because now Robert Mueller is using all of the intelligence from our allies, from other countries, from other agencies, and they are — you know, you can’t talk your way out of this. If there’s going to be an indictment, he’s done. He may as well just come to Jesus and confess everything right now.
Trump doesn’t know what’s about to hit him
It’s almost a certainty that Trump allies Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi are on their way to being indicted by Robert Mueller. Even they have admitted as much.
And as Malcolm Nance said on Saturday, there is no way they can talk their way out of it, especially given the intelligence Mueller has at his fingertips.
What remains to be seen is whether the special counsel has similar smoking guns that connect Trump directly to the criminal conduct of his associates (and family members). As Joy Reid noted on Saturday, though, it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which Trump wasn’t part of these activities.
For clues about what’s around the bend, we can look no further than the president himself, whose behavior seems to suggest that he knows Mueller is about to drop something major on him – and soon.
Ultimately, the last few weeks surrounding the midterm campaign have been quiet with respect to Robert Mueller‘s ongoing investigation. But Trump‘s deteriorating mental state suggests that things are about to heat up in a big way.
