Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut said Monday there is a “credible case” for obstruction of justice in the Russia investigation due to “mounting evidence,” but failed to provide any new revelations or a timetable for the probe’s conclusion.
“I think all of it is building, mounting evidence and there is now a credible case of obstruction of justice,” Blumenthal said on “Morning Joe.” “The special counsel is proceeding meticulously and methodically and he will interview the president face-to-face is my prediction.”
This isn’t the first time Blumenthal has refused to give a specific timeline for when the investigation might end. On CNN’s “New Day” last August, he said he hoped the case would wrap up “sooner rater than later.”
Host Joe Scarborough asked if President Donald Trump would be indicted and if the Supreme Court would be forced to take up the issue.
“That is probably the way it would arise if there were an indictment of the president but certainly there can be indictments of people around the president and that’s the most likely focus right now for Bob Mueller,” Blumenthal said.
The Connecticut Democrat predicted more indictments will be handed down as the case progresses and the trials will be “revelatory.”
“Remember that we’ve had two convictions, two indictments,” Blumenthal said. “The indictments will result in trials, and those trials will be revelatory of additional facts as well, the additional convictions and indictments that you can expect early this year from the special counsel. That’s part of upholding the rule of law.”
