There are at least two attorneys who represent people in Robert Mueller’s probe who believe that it’s possible Mueller could indict Trump.

The lawyers revealed that even though they don’t have specific knowledge of Mueller’s plans, their legal experience leads them to believe Trump could be indicted for obstruction of justice.



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

A second lawyer, who is representing a senior Trump official, revealed Mueller could indict Trump to show how serious his findings are, even though there would be a tough procedural standard to do so.

The lawyer asserted, “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 lawyer continued, “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.”

There is still the question that remains unanswered as to whether a federal prosecutor can indict a sitting president.

Some legal scholars believe that Mueller’s effort could spark a case titled U.S. vs Trump that would move quickly to the Supreme Court.

There are signs that indicate Mueller is closing in on Trump.

So far Mueller has indicted Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, former top Trump campaign aides, who have pleaded not guilty. He was also able to get guilty pleas from former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos.

According to people who were interviewed by Mueller’s team, the special counsel is focusing on a case of potential obstruction of justice.



The lawyer who said he would “bet” against Trump believes that Mueller could wrap up the case soon with a possibility of an indictment.

The lawyer stated, “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.”
