The main question everyone is asking after the arrests of Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort and business associate Rick Gates is: Who is next? What evidence does Special Counsel Robert Mueller have, and who is he setting his sights on? Although it’s been reported he has enough evidence to indict and arrest former national security adviser Michael Flynn, along with his son; one person has some other individuals in mind for indictments.
Howard Dean, former Democratic National Chairman and former Democratic candidate for president in 2004, appeared on MSNBC and expressed who he believed could be and would be indicted.
‘We may well have a criminal in the White House. Certainly, he has a special interest in the Trump family and their investments. And we think there is substantial likelihood that he has laundered-money. That’s what his associates have been charged with… This is a very serious matter… I think you’re going to eventually see either the Flynns are going to please guilty or cooperate for some leniency.’
He then remarked Special Counsel Mueller was seen as a “straight shooter” by both Democrats and Republicans. He speculated Mueller would start from the bottom and work his way to the top and included at the top would be Trump’s family members. Dean explained he felt the Flynns would seek a plea bargain in exchange for dirt on the bigger players in the investigation.
That’s when he dropped a bomb and predicted Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner would end up indicted.
‘I expect, there’s a good likelihood that Jared Kushner will be indicted for money laundering, and then we’re going to have to see how far the Russian involvement goes.’
Bruce Levell, Trump National Diversity Coalition Director, also appeared in the interview and countered Dean’s remarks. First, he scolded Dean for calling Trump a criminal and used the moment to throw a right hook and some shade at the DNC, which is dealing with its own set of woes. He accused the Democratic party of conspiracy theories. He did not mention anything about the sound possibility that Kushner could be indicted, and honestly, he didn’t even defend him.
Dean then unleashed the fury on Levell and reminded him that, although the RNC’s fundraising efforts have raised a significant amount of money, they still control all of Congress and the White House and still can’t get anything done. It was beautiful.
‘You’re in charge of everything, and you’re not getting anything done. You’ve got the House, the Senate, and the presidency. You haven’t delivered a damn thing except try to take away 8 million people’s health insurance… The issue is not whether the Democratic party is a mess or not. The issue is whether the president of the United States was in a conspiracy with the Russian government to get elected.’
Oh, snap! Levell is going to need ObamaCare to treat that burn. He made his point, though. The conversation was supposed to be about the Russian investigation and where it could be headed. Levell mentioned nothing about it and instead tried to point the finger at the Democratic party. Although Democrats are having a rough time with uniting their party, it still does not take away from the fact there are serious questions and concerns involving the Trump campaign’s involvement with the Russian government.
