FULL TITLE: Donald Trump, Jr. will be indicted by Mueller, former prosecutor says, and will help to ensnare his father

Donald Trump Jr. will be indicted and used by special counsel Robert Mueller to ensnare his father President Donald Trump, a former prosecutor predicted.

During a segment on MSNBC’s AM Joy on Saturday, Paul Butler, a former Department of Justice public corruption prosecutor, and host Joy Reid discussed the latest developments in Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Trump’s campaign team and Moscow officials.

“Does Mueller have to indict Trump in order to put the proper coda at the end of the long symphony?” Reid asked the ex-prosecutor.

“Mueller is not going to indict Trump, because he’s going to follow the DOJ employee handbook, but he has leverage over the president in terms of Donald Trump, Jr.,” Butler explained. “We’ve seen Mueller use people’s kids to get to folks in the past. He could do this with Donald Trump, Jr.”

He continued: “Trump, Jr. went into the Senate Intelligence Committee, took an oath to tell the truth, and lied his butt off.”

“You think he will get indicted?” Reid asked.

“If Roger Stone and Michael Cohen get indicted for lying to the Intelligence Committee and Donald, Jr. lied, then he gets indicted too,” Butler responded.

Show Mueller the man, and he'll manufacture the crime.

I’ve been predicting this for months now. Even more so after the Roger Stone fiasco where the FBI/Gestapo marched in like Nazis into Poland. My only question is what will the President do when his own son is arrested. Will he sit back and do nothing at all as he has in the past?

We shall see.

If Mueller's charge was really about Russian collusion, then there is no "getting" to do.

Using a child to "get" the parent is unethical, especially when it is so far out of the bounds of the original purpose of the investigation.

At that point, it becomes nothing but a vendetta.

This is government abuse of the law.

They know the person they want to nail hasn’t done anything wrong, but they ask them a million questions over and over and then claim because the answers given are not identical, the person has lied and gets charged with that.

This is called iniquity. Mueller will pay heavy for perverting justice this way.

Mueller has framed them for “process crimes”. None of these people did anything illegal. Thats why none of the indictments have anything to do with what they were investigating.

It was that from the start. Only democrats bleated that it was otherwise.

Which begs the question, why would Graham and McConnell go along with it, if it gets to that point?

I know that McConnell is power-hungry and owned by the Chinese, but what's in it for Graham to play along?

And if Jr. doesn’t talk, they’ll try water boarding. Seriously, even the left will see this as pathetic.
