Sen. Whitehouse: Reports that Mueller Probe Is Nearly Finished Are ‘Long Way from Being Accurate’
BLITZER: "Let's turn, senator, to the Mueller probe now. I want your thoughts on the rather mysterious case of this unidentified company owned by an unnamed foreign government that a court just ordered to comply with a grand jury subpoena. You're a former prosecutor. What can you gather from the limited information the U.S. Government and prosecution, the Mueller probe, has put forward?"
WHITEHOUSE: "Well, I think the obvious thing that one can glean from all of this is that the early reporting that the Mueller probe is nearly finished are a long way from being accurate. I think there is a lot left to go, and clearly the sentencing memorandum for Flynn and now this activity shows a very active continuing investigation. To me, the biggest shoe that has yet to drop is what Mueller is doing and what they are going to do about the change, the pro Russia change in the Republican Party platform relative to our national position on the Ukraine. And when you consider this trump business deal that was going on in and around that time period, when you consider that manafort and Flynn were both engaged in those conversations, that manafort was leading his team through that convention, that manafort had his own interests, pro-Russian interests in Ukraine, and it's perhaps one of the most transactional people ever born on the planet, the idea that that all happened without there being quid pro quos and nefarious behavior seems very unlikely. And so that's the big next piece that I am expecting to drop, based on what we already know. I wouldn't put it past Mueller to indict the Trump campaign. We're circling that wagon pretty closely, too."
