A Democratic member of the Senate Judiciary Committee says he is “99 percent certain” that indictments will be handed down for former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
“I’m about 99 percent sure there will be some criminal charges from this investigation,” Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal told Politico on Tuesday.
Blumenthal said that Flynn and Manafort “are the most prominent” Trump associates who are likely to be indicted, “but there may well be others” charged as part of a sprawling investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Blumenthal also told Politico that he is less certain that Trump will face any charges related to the investigation, which has expanded to include a look at whether Trump obstructed justice by firing James Comey as FBI director in May.
