Sen. Richard Blumenthal Explains Why Donald Trump Jr. Is Going Down

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) showed that Donald Trump Jr. with Wikileaks, which is another reason for the president’s son to be indicted.

Blumenthal said on MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber, “It really is about what the special counsel knows and can prove about Wikileaks coordinating with the trump campaign, and using Roger stone as an intermediary, a conduit, someone close to Donald Trump personally. Then in the indictment, an outreach from someone directing a senior official to contact Roger stone. Again the pieces of this mosaic are coming together. They involve also, remember Donald Trump Jr. Messaging with Wikileaks at almost the same time, but what is this I hear about a Wednesday document, Tom?”


Trump is worried that his son is going to be indicted. House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff is turning over transcripts of Don Jr.’s testimony to Robert Mueller to investigate potential perjury charges against the Trump Jr. The perjury charges are expected to be related to Trump Jr. lying about the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians to the House Intelligence Committee, but if Don Jr. committee crimes with Wikileaks, it will open up a whole new legal can of worms.

It is a matter of when, not if, Donald Trump Jr. gets indicted. The president’s son was not an official member of the campaign, but he obviously was deeply involved in the inner workings of whatever happened with the Russians.

Donald Trump Jr. is in a world of trouble, as it seems Mueller has his choice of felonies prosecute when it comes to Donald Trump Jr.
