REP: Trumpers Will End Up In Jail

April 4, 2017 5:32 p.m.

Interesting exchange a few minutes ago with Intelligence Committee member, Rep. Joaquin Castro, talking about eventual results of the Trump/Russia probe …

REP JOAQUIN CASTRO (D-TX): I guess I would say this, that my impression is after all of this is said and done that some people end up in jail.

WOLF BLITZER: Really? And how high does that go and in your suspicion? That’s all we can call it right now.

CASTRO: Well, that’s yet to be determined.

BLITZER: But you think some people are going to wind up in jail, not just one individual, but people plural.

CASTRO: That’s my impression.

BLITZER: You want to elaborate on that give us more? Because that is obviously a very intriguing statement.

CASTRO: I wish I could, but I can’t at this time.

BLITZER: You’re confident that some Trump associates will end up in jail.

CASTRO: If I were betting, yes.

BLITZER: Including some working in the new administration or people who worked or advised the president during the campaign or maybe during the transition?

CASTRO: As you can imagine, Wolf, I will have to comment on that later. But my impression is that people will probably be charged and probably go to jail.

BLITZER: Without sharing the evidence because I know it’s classified but do you believe there is enough evidence already, evidence that you’ve seen that would justify someone going to jail or some people going to jail?

CASTRO: If the claims hold up, most likely.
