Nick Akerman, former U.S. Attorney who prosecuted the Watergate case, dropped a bombshell while speaking with Joy Reid on Saturday’s show.  He said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russians are a sign that he is preparing similar indictments of Trump campaign officials.

In his interview, Akerman said “there is no way” the Russians would have been able to carry out their attack without the help of people on the ground from within the Trump campaign.

“[Robert Mueller and his team] know who the Americans are,” Ackerman said. “They know who is going to be indicted.”

Here is a transcript of the interview clip:

“There is no way, no how that the Russians would have enough political sense and have enough feel for what the game on the ground is without having spotters and people in the Trump campaign directing this. And if you look at this indictment, it is filled with incredible details about the Russians. I mean, this is not gathered just based on forensic evidence. And they know. They know who the Americans are. They know who is going to be indicted. And they’re in the process now of putting that evidence together so they can convict these people beyond a reasonable doubt.”

According to Politucususa, “Given Republican efforts to undermine the overall investigation, special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is clearly trying to make sure, as Nick Akerman said on Saturday, that any Americans involved will be convicted “beyond a reasonable doubt.””

I sure hope so.

Within the U.S. foreign policy establishment, there is considerable concern that Trump is meeting with Putin without the presence of advisers or note-takers. Some Russia experts fear Trump is a relative novice and will be taken advantage of by Putin, a former KGB agent.

Trump is Putin’s bitch, we all know that.

The visit, (Trump meeting Putin), and this private aspect of it is staggering beyond belief. Whilst Trump’s private meeting with Kim Jong Un was also quite unprecedented, the stakes were perhaps much less, and might have merely been about Trump offering a private Trump Organisation deal on the side; yes, I wrote that…”the stakes were less”…showing where we are now with this so-called presidency.
