Criminal charges against two former top advisers to President Donald Trump are virtually certain, Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal said Tuesday.

Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort are almost sure to be indicted as a result of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, the Connecticut senator told POLITICO.

”I'm about 99 percent sure there will be some criminal charges from this investigation," said Blumenthal, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Blumenthal has also served as a U.S. attorney and spent 20 years as his state's attorney general.

Welp, let the arresting begin.

Sounds like there should be two increasingly nervous men now.

Doesn't really sound like he has any special info saying as much. Just what everyone else who's been following has heard.

They'll eat the charges and get 6 month prison terms each, right?

Is this how it ends?

And ugh, here come the pardons? But if these are state crimes, Trump can't do a fucking thing.

We were 99% sure that Trump wouldn't be president. I'll believe it when I see it.

Clean house and take down The Republicans that have looked the other way too. It's not just the White House at this point that is complicit in all of this.

Just get rid of the entire administration and start over at this point.

Indictments for Flynn and Manafort are definitely coming short of Mueller getting fired. The main thing is if they're able to get them on state charges.

One day we'll look back and laugh at this entire year... Hopefully by Christmas.

We'll have a big montage and everything from February to December.

That's fine, then Meuller can use their proven guilt to bolster his Obstruction case against Trump. It seems to be going that way. Lock up and rattle the little gangsters and minions, if they flip, cool. If they don't, lock em up, then go after the big monster for obstruction or something else like tax fraud or money laundering.

Then Trump? Trump didn't fire Flynn until it was reported on. If not for that report, Flynn would probably still be NSA.
In hindsight it was probably better to leave that unreported at the time and just collect the dirt.
