Donald Trump Jr. could be facing an imminent indictment from Robert Mueller, with a new report claiming that the eldest son of President Trump believes that he could be facing charges anytime in the coming days.
The Russia investigation went into something of a quiet phase in the past several weeks leading up to the midterm elections, but insiders have said that Mueller is ready to move forward with new developments. As Politico reported, Mueller is expected to submit a final report on the Russia investigation to the Justice Department at any point in the coming months, and with it could come new indictments.
Donald Trump Jr., the architect of a controversial 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer promising to share dirt on Hillary Clinton that had been stolen by Russian hackers, believes he is in Mueller's crosshairs.
"Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., who served as a key campaign surrogate for Republican candidates, has told friends in recent weeks that he believes he could be indicted, according to one of those people," the report noted.
Trump Jr. had reportedly told investigators that he did not inform his father about the meeting, but reports indicated that Mueller has evidence he did, NY Magazine reported. Mueller has already nabbed some top Trump officials for lying to investigators, including erstwhile National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
As the report suggested, if Donald Trump Jr. knowingly lied under oath to investigators then it could point to something larger he was trying to hide. Though many have taken aim at Donald Trump himself, there have not yet been any reports connecting the president directly to the Trump Tower meeting.
