Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said that there is a strong possibility that Trump‘s family could be indicted by other entities based on the work of Mueller.
Sen. Blumenthal said on MSNBC‘s The Beat with Ari Melber, “I think there is a strong possibility of additional indictments including President Trump’s family. Maybe not by the Department of Justice, but by other offices. I know you want to stick to the Mueller report. But the Mueller report cannot be viewed in isolation any more than an investigation even though it may end cannot lead to additional investigative leads and actions, so I think there’s a high probability of additional indictments.”

Mueller is done, but the investigation will live on.
Robert Mueller had a very narrow investigative scope, but as we have seen with Michael Cohen, Mueller’s investigation has opened up lines of investigation for other bodies. The odds that the Trump kids skate away from these criminal probes unscathed are lessening by the day. The Mueller investigation was never the biggest fear of the White House.
The White House is scared of the Southern District of New York, and the end of Mueller’s investigation has done nothing to lessen the Trump family‘s legal jeopardy.
