Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) predicted on Monday that Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner will both be indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller, saying that “the truth is going to come out.”
“I think they’re getting closer to knowing that the truth is going to come out that there was activities with the Trump campaign and Russia in releasing those hacks and guiding them to the states and the localities where they came from,” Cohen said during an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
“Some of that was Jared Kushner’s responsibilities, some of it was Donald [Trump] Jr. I think you’re probably going to see indictments of both of those people.”
When asked why he thought the two men would be indicted, Cohen said: “Well I think they were probably the people in connection with the Russians and conspiracy to affect the elections.”
“Time will show whether I’m correct or not,” he added. “I believe I am correct. If it walks like a duck, if it swims like a duck, if it quacks like a duck, it’s a duck. And you can see where it’s going.”
The Hill added:
Cohen has a history of making bold claims that he has later taken back. Earlier this month, he apologized for saying that FBI agent Peter Strzok deserved a Purple Heart for enduring a congressional hearing where he was ripped by Republicans over texts that they feel betrayed an anti-Trump bias.
