White House insiders worry that Don Trump Jr. will be indicted by Christmas, lol

I saw a story on CNN over the weekend about how Melania Trump barely lifted a finger to help out any Republican up for election this year. It’s true – Melania is a lazy trophy wife and she doesn’t really care about campaigning or helping her husband or any of that. But Emperor Bigly does have some surrogates, like his weak-chinned dumbass son Don Jr. Don Jr. hit the trail in a big way during this election cycle, crisscrossing the country with his sketchy girlfriend. Don Jr. knows his own fate is tied up in the Republican majority too, because Don Jr. is vulnerable as hell when it comes to Robert Mueller’s investigation. Even White House insiders fear that Don Jr. is likely just weeks away from being indicted? Bless.

Hope Hicks’ birthday party provided a brief respite from the news cycle on the eve of the midterms in which Republicans are projected to lose the House of Representatives, and perhaps governorships in red states Georgia and Florida. “Everyone is resigned to the outcome,” a former West Wing official said. Sources said Trump has been privately working to absolve himself of any blame if indeed a blue wave washes over Washington. “He’s happy with his crowds and the turnout and the excitement. He’ll be able to say it would have been worse without him,” the former official said.

The bigger threat for Trump than losing control of Congress is Robert Mueller’s looming report. Sources say Trump advisers are girding themselves for Mueller to deliver the results of his investigation to the Justice Department as early as Wednesday, although it’s more likely he’ll wait till later this month. Sources say besides the president, the ones with the most exposure are Roger Stone and Donald Trump Jr. “I’m very worried about Don Jr.,” said another former West Wing official who testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The possible exposure would be that Mueller would demonstrate that Don Jr. perjured himself to investigators when he said he didn’t tell his father beforehand about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting to gather “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. (Donald Trump Jr.’s lawyer, Alan Futerfas, declined to comment.)

One potential sign of how seriously Trumpworld is treating the Mueller threat has been the near total silence of Rudy Giuliani. A constant presence on cable news over the summer, Giuliani hasn’t been on television in weeks. “What the hell happened to Rudy?” a former White House official said when I asked about Giuliani’s whereabouts. According to three sources briefed on Trump’s legal team, Giuliani has been in Europe visiting consulting clients as well as preparing a report with Trump lawyers Marty and Jane Raskin that is designed to provide a counter-narrative to Mueller’s document. “They don’t know what Mueller has but they have a good idea and they’re going to rebut it,” one Republican close to Giuliani said. But another source said Trump instructed Giuliani to stay off television to avoid hurting Trump’s midterm message. “Trump’s thinking is, ‘I gave you a lot of rope and now you got a lot of rope marks around your neck,’” the source said. (The White House did not respond to a request for comment.)

LOL, I didn’t even notice the fact that Rudy has been MIA for weeks. I mean, he wasn’t helping? His thirsty, camera-hungry defense of Trump was arguably the most passive-aggressive failure of the year – every time Rudy tried to “defend” Trump, Rudy ended up making news because he boldly admitted on camera that Trump had committed a bunch of crimes. As for Don Jr… well, if Don gets indicted by Christmas, I’m buying everybody a bag of Christmas candy.

    Lol, Merry Christmas, Junior!

    • jan90067 says:

      I’m hoping we’ll all have something to be thankful/grateful for by THANKSGIVING! WOMP WOMP Jr!

      My *big* concern is that Mueller turns over the report, and the republiTHUGS bury it. That is entirely possible unless 🌊🌊🌊🌊 hits big today!

      (ESP YOUNG VOTERS!!) 🌊🌊🙏🏻🙏🏻🤞🏻🇺🇸

        And keep in mind–if you or a loved one has a medical emergency, you CAN vote from your hospital bed. Different states have different ways to go about it, so the smart way to deal with surprises is to go to this web site, click on your state, and follow instructions for your medical emergency waiver ballot:

        I voted at 10:30 on a rainy Tuesday morning. Longest line in 18 years of voting.

        “My *big* concern is that Mueller turns over the report, and the republiTHUGS bury it.”

        By law, if Mueller recommends indictment, and the acting AG decides not to indict, they MUST submit a report to all of Congress detailing why the indictment was recommended and why the AG decided against going forward. This step was put into the Special Counsel regulations during the Clinton Administration. I share your fears, but I am hoping this regulation would prevent a burial of the Mueller report.

    • caty says:

      You know, I don’t think it will matter in the end because they will just appeal it all the way to the supreme court and Brett & co. will make sure it goes away.

  2. Jenns says:

    This would be the greatest Christmas present to me since I was eight and I got the Barbie Dream House.

  3. KMarcus says:

    He is not getting indicted nor is any other Trump family member. There have been enough crimes and impeachable offenses committed ON CAMERA by Trump and these aholes in just the past month alone to indict all of them on a grab bag of charges. I have actually hit the point where I think even the Mueller investigation is bs. Nothing is going to happen to any of them.

    • Pandy says:

      I have to agree with you … but I’m hoping something comes out of it … and DJTJ would be almost as good a get as Agent Orange.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      Voting to put the House of Representatives into Democratic hands will restore subpoena power to the Judiciary and Intelligence Committees and then we stand a chance of finding out what the hell happened. It opens up more avenues to impeachment and takes a little pressure off the Special Counsel.

      “Where there’s life, there’s hope.”

    • Boodiba says:

      Ya… I don’t have quite as strong an opinion, but I simply cannot get excited about any of these speculations anymore. I’ll save it for when something big actually happens.

    • Mac says:

      Indicting the Junior would be seen as a purely political move and would result in the immediate firing of Mueller. I tend to think Junior will be called out in the report and it will be up to Congress to pursue. Let’s just hope come January Adam Schiff is running the Russian investigation in the House.

    • Veronica S. says:

      At the end of the day, I honestly do not give a sh*t about this idiot. I hope he goes down, but he’s not big fish to me. When we start talking Trump himself or the inner circle, that’s a different story, but Jr. isn’t making laws and using his status as POTUS to destroy this country right now.

    • Spargel says:

      Yup. KMarkus speaks true.

  4. tw says:

    Dear lord, I saw him and Kimberly Gargoyle on CNN this weekend and I threw up a little in my mouth. All I want for Christmas is a Don Jr. perp walk.

  5. Skyblue says:

    That would be the best Christmas present ever!!!

  6. Beth says:

    Does Junior have a real job? All he seems to do is host multiple campaigns a day with his mistress and send vicious nonsense tweets every 3 minutes trying to divide our country. Junior being indicted by Christmas would be an awesome Christmas gift. Merry Christmas, happy holidays, Grease ball Junior

  7. grabbyhands says:

    It’s a nice fantasy, but I don’t see him or anybody else high profile getting indicted for anything anytime soon. The last two years of watching this crime family slime away from all consequences taught me that.

    • EllieMichelle says:

      I think Jr will, which is hilarious because he’s a 40 year old man who became an alt right proud boy to impress his daddy, who would gladly throw Donnie under the bus in a bus in a second.

  8. Tiffany says:

    Will we chose the candy we want, Kaiser. Because, I am particular.

  9. Sarah B says:

    I like that chocolate shaped like an orange, just in case you were taking orders for candy.

  10. minx says:

    Hope so!

  11. FluffyPrincess says:

    If this does come to pass, you can score another prediction victory for Michael Avenatti. He said a few weeks ago that Don Jr. will be indicted by his (Don Jr.’s) birthday–which is December 31. That will keep his prediction rate at 100%.

  12. Indiana Joanna says:

    I believe Jr will be indicted. I believe in Mueller.

    However, drump and the GOP have been busy installing GOP sympathetic judges so the investigations are a race against time. @SarahKendzior, a scholar and journalist, has been saying this for a while. I believe Mueller has everything he needs to show that drump and his team and mob family enthusiastically colluded with Putin. But will the now compromised justice system follow through with convictions?

  13. Lightpurple says:

    I was hoping for Veterans Day

  14. Who ARE These People? says:

    If any of them are indicted in December I will use a 2nd box of Chanukah candles and go through the whole menorah sequence twice for the extra miracle.

    • jan90067 says:

      👍🏻 🕎 I’ll join you!

      And 👉🏻 YOU get a menorah! And 👉🏻 YOU get a menorah! A menorah for EVERYONE! 🕎🕎🕎🕎🕎

  15. SJhere says:

    OK, Just seeing this headline made me laugh!

    Man, I got some problems in my life these days but FFS, at least I’m not looking over my shoulder waiting on the Feds to haul me in.

    Lawyers be getting a big old Bonus for years end, Billable hours, Baby! Ha!

  16. Christin says:

    Not that I follow the guy that closely, but I think it may be telling that his wife called it a day.

    Shielding “their” assets – maybe. If it’s true she had a sizeable inheritance from her father’s investments, then she may have wanted to steer clear of spending that money on Jr’s legal bills, plain and simple. She may have been advised time was running out to cut and run.

  17. RBC says:

    His quick divorce and settlement make sense now. I would much prefer an elephant take a huge dump on him, but prison time still works for me

  18. Snowflake says:

    Please, God, please!!!

  19. agnes says:

    Can I have some Butterfingers? A small bag would be great *pleaseandthankyouverymuch*
    I love them and they aren’t sold in Germany.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      agnes, try Amazon. they sell them and they deliver internationally.

    • jwoolman says:

      I’ll second Butterfingers. Actually, Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups were on sale before Halloween and they’re pretty good also.

  20. lobstah says:

    Weak-chinned!!! Amazing.

  21. Joy says:

    Treason’s Greetings Junior!

  22. Wood Dragon says:

    Here’s hoping all of Trump’s worthless older offspring get their turn in the barrel.

  23. AnneC says:

    I tend to think that the NY state attorney general’s office will be the trump family downfall. Fingers crossed they all go to jail for fraud and money laundering and the business goes bankrupt. Vote!

  24. Cate says:

    I know it’s probably anti-woman of me, but ever since he took up with Guilfoyle. whenever I hear a story about DJT Jr. I just chuckle about him getting Gavin Newsom’s sloppy seconds.

  25. Littlefishmom says:

    Best Christmas gift (for me) eeeeever!!

  26. Tarc says:

    Beavis is jail would be great. Butthead needs to go too.

  27. Anare says:

    Don Jr is just so oily looking.
