Michael Cohen’s former lawyer Lanny Davis — who worked as a special counsel to former President Bill Clinton — said on MSNBC following Cohen’s sentencing Wednesday that anyone involved with the Trump campaign should be concerned about their legal fate.

When asked if he thinks Trump’s children will be indicted, Davis wouldn’t say, but suggested they had plenty to worry about.

“I would say (Trump’s children) have a lot to worry about. I don’t know who the ‘they’ is, in that anybody associated with the Trump campaign has a lot to worry about,” he said. “Bob Mueller, who’s akin to a submarine, silently fueled by facts and only facts, no leaks and just watch and wait and that’s what Mr. Cohen will do and then Michael will tell the truth once Mueller is finished.”

The comments follow Cohen’s sentencing on Wednesday, in which he received three years in prison for lying to Congress, violating campaign finance law and several other federal crimes.
