The future does not look bright for some members of President Trump’s campaign team.
On Tuesday, Rep. Joaquín Castro revealed some serious information about the ongoing investigation into connections between Trump’s campaign and Russia.
When asked by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer about what has been discovered so far in the investigation, the Texas Democrat said:
‘I guess I would say this, that my impression is, I wouldn’t be surprised after all of this is said and done that some people end up in jail.’
Later in the interview, Castro, who is a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, doubled down on his claim. When Blitzer asked if he was “confident that at least some Trump associates will wind up in jail,” Castro responded:
‘If I were betting, I would say yes.’
Although he was clearly confident about his prediction, Castro was, understandably, not able to provide the CNN host with many details about the investigation. When Blitzer asked him how “high” up in the Trump administration the alleged corruption goes, Castro merely said that it is “yet to be determined.”
He also declined to provide specific information about which members of Trump’s team are in danger of spending time behind bars. When Blitzer asked if those who might go to jail include “some working in the new administration or people who worked or advised the president during the campaign or maybe during the transition,” Castro explained:
‘As you can imagine, Wolf, I’ll have to comment on that later. But, if somebody asked me my impression, my impression is that people will probably be charged and I think people will probably go to jail.’
Still in disbelief about Castro’s statement, Blitzer ended the interview by asking again about the type of evidence the committee currently has that would “justify someone going to jail.”
‘Without sharing the evidence because I know it’s classified, but do you believe there is enough evidence already, evidence that you’ve seen that would justify someone going to jail or some people going to jail?’
Castro simply said in response, “If the claims hold up, most likely.”
