Donald Trump Jr. told friends he fears his indictment is imminent: report

Donald Jr
President Donald Trump took a risk Wednesday by ousting Attorney General Jeff Sessions and replacing him with Matthew Whitaker, who is by all appearances, a lackey for the White House.It was a move clearly designed to assert control over Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. It raises some dangers for the president, as Congress could retaliate in response to such an overt assault on the rule of law — but Trump appears to be betting on the likelihood that Senate Republicans will continue to protect him, especially after the party picked up seats in the chamber during the midterm elections this week. Nevertheless, the move was risky, which suggests Trump had a strong incentive to take it. And according to a new Vanity Fair report, he appears to be protecting his son. Gabriel Sherman reported: In recent days, according to three sources, Don Jr. has been telling friends he is worried about being indicted as early as this week. .


One person close to Don Jr. speculated that Mueller could indict him for making false statements to Congress and the F.B.I. about whether he had told his father about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians to gather “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. This source had heard that the case could revolve around Trump’s former deputy campaign chairman,  Rick Gates,  who’s cooperating with Mueller and who was deeply involved in the campaign at the time of the meeting. Trump, this person continued, is “very upset” about the risks Don Jr. faces. .
