It’s been about a year that Robert Mueller’s special counsel has been investigating President Trump and basically everyone he knows, and now it appears as if that investigation is coming to an end, and it‘s an end Trump supporters won’t like, according to two top attorneys with direct ties to the probe.

According to Politico, the President is likely to be indicted by Mueller’s team this spring, so as to not affect the upcoming mid-terms, allegedly. The publication spoke with two attorneys representing President Trump’s key associates, and their predictions were quite grim.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation has gathered enough steam that some lawyers representing key Donald Trump associates are considering the possibility of a historic first: an indictment against a sitting president.


While many legal experts contend that Mueller lacks the standing to bring criminal charges against Trump, at least two attorneys working with clients swept up in the Russia probe told POLITICO they consider it possible that Mueller could indict the president for obstruction of justice.

“If I were a betting man, I’d bet against the president,” said one of the lawyers.


“If he’s going to do it, I think he’ll do it in the spring,” the attorney added. “I don’t think he wants to be accused of trying to influence the election that dramatically.”

The other attorney, who represents a senior Trump official, said that Mueller is likely to bring charges even if he faces serious procedural challenges, just so he can show the gravity of whatever he discovered.

“It’s entirely possible that Mueller may go that route on the theory that, as an open question, it should be for the courts to decide,” the attorney said. “Even if the indictment is dismissed, it puts maximum pressure on Congress to treat this with the independence and intellectual honesty that it will never, ever get.”

However, Politico made it a point to note that neither of the two attorneys had personal knowledge of any indictments that may or may not be coming; they’re purely speculating.

Neither attorney claimed to have specific knowledge of Mueller’s plans. Both based their opinions on their understanding of the law; one also cited his interactions with the special counsel’s team, whose interviews have recently examined whether Trump tried to derail the probe into his campaign’s Russia ties.

Meanwhile, numerous Republicans have warned that Mueller would be heading down a dangerous road if he decided to indict a sitting President.

In a December interview with Axios, Trump’s personal lawyer John Dowd argued that the “president cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law enforcement officer” under the Constitution.

Some Republicans warn that Mueller would be playing with fire should he pursue an indictment of Trump.

“It would create a constitutional crisis,” said Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.), a former federal prosecutor and district attorney.

Buck said Mueller would be on especially dangerous ground were he to base an obstruction of justice case on Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey: “Assessing the motives” of a president who decides to dismiss executive branch personnel would be “unique in the history of the country,” he said.

Take from this what you will; however, it’s important to remember that the only reason Mueller was brought in was to take Trump out. If these attorneys are correct, then it’ll be mission accomplished.
