John Brennan's Prediction on Mueller Indictments Falls Way Off The Mark
Brennan smugly predicted on MSNBC the president would be Indicted
Former CIA Director John Brennan two weeks ago predicted that President Donald Trump’s family members or associates would be indicted in Robert Mueller Russia probe.
Brennan smugly predicted on MSNBC on March 5, that Mueller would issue indictments related to a “criminal conspiracy” involving the presdient or associates’ activities during the 2016 election.
But his prediction was way off the mark.
The final report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe "vindicated" President Donald Trump.
“If anybody from the Trump family … is going to be indicted, it would be in the final act of Mueller’s investigation because Bob Mueller and I think his team knows that if he were to do something, indicting a Trump family member, or if he were to go forward with an indictment on a criminal conspiracy involving U.S. persons that would basically be the death knell of the special counsel’s office,” Brennan told anchor Lawrence O’Donnell.
“I don’t believe that Donald Trump would allow Bob Mueller to continue in the aftermath of those actions,” he added.
But Brennan’s wishful thinking was demolished on Friday when Mueller submitted his s report to the Justice Department.
Officials announce that no more indictments will be submitted following the investigation which has lasted almost two years.
There are also indictments that have been issued under seal.
The last indictment in the investigation was against Trump confidant Roger Stone on Jan. 24.
None of the indictments have involved charges of a conspiracy between Trump associates and Russian government officials.
In August 2018, Trump tied his decision to revoke the security clearance of ex-CIA Cheif John Brennan to the investigation into Russian election meddling.
During an interview, Trump attributed his decision to pull his clearance due to his role in the early stages of the investigation into Russia's potential interference in the 2016 election.
