Via Newsweek, the idea that Don. Jr. might be indicted is on Trump’s mind these days:
President Donald Trump’s top concern in regards to the special counsel’s investigation must be his eldest son’s previous testimony before Congress, which could lead to an indictment of Donald Trump Jr., according to ABC News’s chief legal analyst Dan Abrams on Monday.
Abrams said the president had to continue the narrative that he had no advance knowledge of the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower, otherwise, his son could be exposed for lying to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“He has to stick to that part because if he says he knew about the meeting, that almost certainly means Donald Jr. lied in front of Congress, and I think that that would almost certainly mean that Donald Jr. would get indicted,” Abrams said. “And that’s I think gotta be his number one concern. We can talk about all these questions of campaign finance law and possible defrauding of the United States. The number one concern of his right now has to be that statement to Congress from Don Jr. that Donald Trump didn’t know about the meeting.”
