Don Trump Jr.’s imminent indictment is making his dad especially crazy

St Michael St George sevice

There’s so much to look forward to in the next few months: Thanksgiving, Christmas, a fraught lame-duck session in Congress, and of course, what ties everything together: Indictment Season. We are living in the Age of Bob “Sexual Dynamite” Mueller. The man is a Christmas tree decorated with unsealed indictments and search warrants. ‘Tis the season!! As we heard earlier this week, just before Election Day, Don Trump Jr. believes that he will be indicted any day now. That story originally came from Vanity Fair, and then Politico repeated the claim yesterday. And Vanity Fair has even more, in a story about how Donald Trump is depressed and Don Jr. is absolutely preparing for an imminent arrest:

Trump’s move against Sessions today arrives at a moment when Trump allies are increasingly concerned about Donald Trump Jr.’s legal exposure. In recent days, according to three sources, Don Jr. has been telling friends he is worried about being indicted as early as this week. One person close to Don Jr. speculated that Mueller could indict him for making false statements to Congress and the F.B.I. about whether he had told his father about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians to gather “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. This source had heard that the case could revolve around Trump’s former deputy campaign chairman, Rick Gates, who’s cooperating with Mueller and who was deeply involved in the campaign at the time of the meeting. Trump, this person continued, is “very upset” about the risks Don Jr. faces. “The president is very depressed,” this person said. (“Don never said any such thing, and there is absolutely no truth to these rumors,” said Don Jr.’s lawyer, Alan Futerfas.)

[From Vanity Fair]

Is Don Jr. getting indicted THIS WEEK? Like, will it happen today? Tomorrow? Considering Bigly’s unhinged performance at the press conference yesterday, I suspect that he knows that some larger things are brewing, and soon.

Incidentally, I told my mom that Don could be getting indicted soon and she was like “so when are they slapping the handcuffs on Jared Kushner?” Seriously though – if Don’s getting indicted, surely Jared’s moment is coming sooner rather than later? And once Don and Jared fall, would Precious Ivanka be far behind? This might be the best Thankschristgivingmas season ever.

    Come on Mueller…

    Now with the House having his back, it’s time to release the evidence to the public.

    • Branvoyage says:

      They may have been elected, but they don’t assume power until January.

      • Kitten says:

        This. People need to understand the timing of his firing of Sessions. He specifically did this now because Dems don’t have control until January.

    • FuefinaWG says:

      Keep in mind, too, that Matthew Whittaker, the newly appointed AG, is a big fan of Bigley’s.

  2. Aang says:

    In the best of all possible worlds Don Jr will gain revenge for never never being loved as much as Ivanka by spilling all the tea.

    • Lightpurple says:

      He’ll spill tea but it won’t be intentional and he’ll actually try to take one for Daddy.

      Nagini, on the other hand, will sell them all out to save herself. And no, she won’t spill on Daddy to save Tom Riddle. She’s sticking with Voldy until the Sword of Gryfindor takes her down or she cuts a plea deal with Mueller.

      • jessamine says:

        I would just like to say I love basically all of your Nagini references.

      • Va Va Kaboom says:

        You’re Harry Potter references are on point!! Oh, an I 99% agree, except I don’t think anyone knows who Ivanka will side with in the end.

        Ivanka and Jared are on track to be (REAL) multi-billionaires between the two of them. And while Donald has the power of the presidency behind him now, that will end in 2-6 years. Siding with the Kushners, especially considering all the personal connections Jared has made while in the WH is probably the smarter choice for Ivanka.

    • CairinaCat says:

      Once Jr figures out daddy is going to let him hang to save his own skin I think Jr might spill the beans.
      It will take a bit though, daddy will keep promising the moon to keep Jr from talking

      And I hope weasel Jared is next

      If Jared does get arrested, do you think Grifter Barbie and the kids will flee somewhere before they come after her?

  3. jessamine says:

    Santa, I have been good all year…

    • Frida_K says:

      I have also been good all year!

      And after all the indictments rain down upon us like manna from heaven? WELL. Time for our rewards.

      And me?

      I want some Bob “Sexual Dynamite” Mueller…¡Ay, papi! I will take THAT!

      ¡Viva la revolución!

    • Still_Sarah says:

      @ Jessamine : I have a friend who is working in China as an English teacher. She was a big Beto O’Rourke supporter and I’m sure she was feeling down about the loss. So I sent her the connection to this story and said it was “to cheer you up!”

      • jessamine says:

        I live in Maine and I felt the Beto loss keenly … these stories are the real care packages! Who needs cookies? lol

      • Giddy says:

        Pity all of us in Texas who also supported Beto. We not only lost him, but we will still have Ted “the weasel” Cruz as our Senator. Cruel double whammy!

    • paranormalgirl says:

      I haven’t been good all year, but I’ve been pretty fun…

  4. Christin says:

    Wonder if they sell hair oil in jail commissaries?

  5. PlaidSheets says:

    Collar stays. I really want him to get magnetic collar stays.

    He’ll look quite presentable for his trial and ensuing conviction.

  6. Harryg says:

    Please let this happen! Please, please, please. Wipe the smirk off his stupid animal hunter bro face.

  7. Jenns says:

    I’ve never wanted anything more in my life.

    If he does the perp walk, it will be better than anything Game of Thrones or Star Wars is going to throw at me in 2019.

  8. Liz version 700 says:

    Red Alert red alert Supreme Court Justice RBG just fell and broke 3 ribs. We are at democracy defcon 1. My anxiety is also at a defcon 1 watching wounded animal Trump vs “winning” Trimp

    • Pandy says:

      I know … this does not bode well.

    • Kitten says:

      Incredibly unfortunate and scary but she’s gonna be ok.

    • themummy says:

      No, it does not bode well. She’s 85, has beat cancer twice, has fallen and broken ribs 2 ribs before, and now she has fallen and broken 3 ribs. She’s really elderly. At some point she’s just not going to be able to do it anymore. I fear this will be that point. (And if not, I hate to be morbid, but it is not AT ALL unlikely that she could die while Trump is in office anyway.)

      I love RBG so much. I learned today that she has never missed a single (not ONE) day on the bench of the Supreme Court, despite the two bouts with cancer and broken bones before. But she’s 85 now…. And I feel like she’s only trying to stay now because she know what a vacancy would mean..

      • Anna says:

        tbh i feel like if she did pass–though lord knows i pray she will recover and be stronger than ever!–i hope there would be some house of cards level strategy to delay news of revealing it until after january… may god and all the spirits and ancestors who love and protect keep her strong and heal her.

  9. Green Is Good says:

    . Donnie-Girl will throw Daddy and his siblings under the short yellow bus. The pussy don’t fall far from the bone spur coward tree.

    • India Rose says:

      Totally loving the comments here.

      But as mom to a boy with some special needs who has ridden a small bus and was called the R-word twice this week (middle school can be harsh, y’all), could we avoid using this reference?

      Trump has a low IQ, low level curiosity, high level ignorance and significant mental health issues, including narcissistic personality disorder. But the bus joke is a no-go. My kid is so much better than this terrible man – no comparison. Not even close.

      Thanks.

      • AMAyson1977 says:

        I’m so sorry that kids are cruel and that your sweet child has to deal with that. You’re absolutely right, that’s a phrase that should be done away with. This awful bunch gives us so many legitimate traits to take issue with and deride, there’s no need to insult those with special needs by associating the two. I hope the middle school bullies get their comeuppance and that your kiddo has a better day today (and every day.)

  10. Elisabeth says:

    am I a replusive human for wishing Don jr sobs like a baby when he’s cuffed?

  11. Elaine says:

    I mean yeah until Mueller gets fired or Whitaker doesn’t approve these indictments. This seems flippant considering Trump now has the direct ability to shut down the investigation through a new puppet.

    • Millenial says:

      Yeah, I’m not at all hopeful this will come to pass. I strongly suspect Whitaker will put a stop to Mueller and the best we can hope for is some kind of justice in a House investigation.

      • lucy2 says:

        Hopefully Mueller is well prepared for being fired/shut down, and has passed everything along to the state of NY.

    • Swack says:

      Read today that Judge Andrew Napolitano said that Whitaker may not be able to take over because he is not legally qualified for the job. There may be hope.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        My husband mentioned that, too (he’s an attorney in the entertainment field). He was wondering why no one seems to be looking at a violation of 28 U.S.C. § 508

    • Dani says:

      This. I don’t think Inbred Jr and Watches You While You Sleep Jared will be indicted any time soon, or at all.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      If Whitaker doesn’t approve the indictments, he has to send a report to congress explaining what indictments were requested and why he chose not to take the recommendation.

      While these are scary times for sure, Trump has been pretty transparent with his goals. I am sure Mueller has plans for how to proceed if people start getting fired.

      Additionally, there are things the democrats can do to get details regarding grand jury proceedings.

      • Nic919 says:

        Mueller already has the indictments for Stone and for Jr. when Manafort and Cohen flipped they gave all this information. Kushner should be worried as well. Junior is talking indictment because he’s been circled for ages and knows people have gone to grand juries as well. We are hearing stuff from over a month ago. Mueller just kept it quiet because of midterms.

      • Anna says:

        omg Mueller please come with it! I am so nervous…these times are perilous….

  12. Mela says:

    One can only hope.

    But I have lost complete faith in our government so i highly doubt this will happen.

  13. StellainNH says:

    The only thing I want for Christmas is for that house of cards to come crashing down. ❤️❤️

  14. agnes says:

    Watching iQ45′s epic meltdown on twitter while eating gleefully some freshly made popcorn.
    Can’t wait!

  15. Skyblue says:

    This would be the second best Christmas gift ever! I already received an early Christmas present in the form of our Montana Democrat Senator Jon Tester getting re-elected in spite of Trump and lil’ Trump’s vendetta against him. I know Tester’s re-election is killing Trump. 😆

    • countryrds says:

      West Virginia re-electing our Dem Senator Manchin also pissed Trump off also. Trump and his 2nd spent a lot of time in this state, unfortunately.

  16. RBC says:

    My dream outcome for this bunch of grifters is prison time and losing everything( no golf trips, tanning, toupees, hair gel etc). Then if they get early parole are forced to live in a apartment building where all their neighbors are immigrants, LGBT+, pro choice, conservationists, anyone they pissed off or tried to take rights away from. Make them grovel to be part of society again.
    That would be karma slapping them down good

  17. Michel says:

    Oh, lordy, I am looking forward to this! If it’s a federal charge, however, won’t daddy be able to pardon junior? Hopefully Mueller has something that sticks on a state level.

    • AnneC says:

      Yeah, I’m actually thinking that NY state is going to do the most damage to the trump family. Hoping they all get put in jail and company goes bankrupt. Federal charges can be pardoned but it will make trump go (more) insane, so that’s good.

  18. Mopsy says:

    I am just about 38 weeks pregnant with my first baby (a girl!) and at this point, every day, am wishing for both labor and for indictments in equal measure.

  19. Skipper says:

    I technically don’t believe in commenting on one’s “looks”, but Don Jr. is just PLUG UGLY. On the outside and inside. His indictment can’t come soon enough.

  20. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    Can’t wait until Uday Trump ends up in prison where he belongs. Hopefully the rest of the family will follow.

  21. themummy says:

    So before Jr can be indicted, Trump is going to shut the whole investigation down through this guy he has (illegally!!!!) installed as the new AG. And if Jr does get into trouble by some odd change (he won’t), Trump will just pardon him. And by the time Congress reconvenes and Dems have actual control of the house, the whole investigation will have been dismantled and shut down.

    He won.

    I don’t know how such an evil moron won all of this, but he did. It makes me sick.

    • Fluffy Princess says:

      Trump cannot shut the Mueller investigation down. If he could, why hasn’t he already done it? Mueller’s investigation is too far along, and he might be in the final stages of wrapping things up.

      Do not forget that Mueller has taken down the execs of Enron, and the Gambino crime family because he got Sammy “The Bull” Gravano (their lead enforcer/hitman) to flip. Mueller has flipped, Flynn, Manafort, Gates, Papadopolous, the guy who ran the National Enquirer AND the COO of Trump International — that is off the top of my head. Mueller has indicted lots of Russians, and he is always MONTHS ahead of what is leaked to the news. Mueller didn’t run the FBI for 12 years because he’s a dummy–he knows what he’s up against. Please give him some credit.

      Also, if Trump “fires” Mueller, you know who can hire him? The Dems in the House. He can be their special counsel and keep moving forward.

      The wait is excruciating, but we need to have hope until there is literally none left. There are many people who work for the FBI and other gov’t agencies who’ve given their whole lives to public service–they aren’t just gonna roll over and say, “Ya, you win! Aww shucks!” We are in for some turbulent times, and that baffoon in the white house won’t go down easy–but he will go down. Manafort, Flynn, Gates, oh and Cohen are NOT going to do jail time for Emperor Zero. Seriously. They are just as dirty, just as much of a con artist as he is–if they go down, they will make sure he does too.

      Stay the course! Truth will out! We will have to fight hard, but we WILL get him.

      • themummy says:

        He can shut it down, though. He installed this Whitaker guy because he is a Trump loyalist and he has said repeatedly in the past that he would never approve indictments, subpoenas, and that the investigation itself needed to end right away. If he orders Whitaker to fire Mueller, he will do it. He’s also engaged in discussions with various people about strangling the investigation to death by cutting funding.

        I’m just feeling kind of hopeless at the moment.

        That said, I really appreciate your response. I think you talked me off the cliff a bit. ;) You make some excellent points here and I needed that!

        (I believe Mueller is a brilliant man and a brilliant strategist. I think my hopeless feeling is more about the fact that nothing seems to stick to Trump ever…)

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Yes, Whitaker has threatened to cut funding down to barely anything…but I’ve read articles that say Mueller is writing the final report now. He might not need much funding if he is in the final stages of his investigation.

      • Nic919 says:

        The budget is set until sept 2019 so he can’t touch it. And if they try to cancel mueller the Dems bring him as a witness Jan3.
        In any case the indictments against Stone and Jr are drafted and under seal. The media is weeks behind what’s really happening. Jr is saying he’s worried because he knows people have gone to grand juries and Cohen and manafort have spoken with Mueller.

  22. JANAK says:

    Junior will be terrified to learn that he can’t have his precious hair gel in the slammer.

  23. jammypants says:

    I’m shocked the Rosenstein story barely made any headlines. He’s no longer overseeing the Russia probe investigation.

  24. youbemom says:

    It’s been a crazy political, personal, and professional week so far, and then this am I found out that 11 young people were gunned down in a bar just north of where I live and then this afternoon I found out that there is a huge wildfire raging just north of where I live…

    So is it awful that I clicked on this story because I needed to read something that would make me feel like their is some justice in this world?

    I think I need to step away a bit more from news and social media, and am going to go play with the 8-month old puppy. Night all, stay safe all, and thank you to everyone who voted in the midterms (especially those in Texas, Georgia, and Florida). Tomorrow is another day.
