SCHIFF: "Well, what it means is that the Office of the Special Counsel, which is essentially a contract attorney to the Justice Department, that that office won’t be bringing any further indictments. It doesn’t mean, of course, that main justice or the Southern District of New York, U.S. Attorney's Office, or the Eastern District or others may not bring indictments. In fact, given the lengthy redactions in many of the pleadings of the Special Counsel alluding to other investigations, I think it’s entirely possible, if not likely, that there will be other indictments. Now, how central or peripheral they’ll be to the core issues of potential conspiracy is yet to be determined. But in terms of the Special Counsel’s record, I think it’s one that, you know, by historic standards in terms of the swiftness of the investigation and the number of people close to the President that were indicted and convicted, the number of Russians indicted, the specificity of the information given about Russia’s interference in our election, it’s a signal accomplishment for any team of prosecutors."
