John Dean, who previously served as White House Counsel for President Richard Nixon, tweeted Thursday that it’s only a matter of days until former President Donald Trump’s indictment.

Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen allegedly met multiple times with the Manhattan district attorney’s office, as part of a criminal investigation into the former president’s taxes, according to the Hill.

“I assure you that you do not visit a prosecutor’s office 7 times if they are not planning to indict those about whom you have knowledge. It is only a matter of how many days until DA Vance indicts Donald & Co,” Dean said on Twitter.

The Supreme Court ruled in February that the investigation into Trump’s tax affairs could proceed, and that the tax returns will have to be released. (RELATED: Supreme Court Denies Trump’s Requests To Shield Tax Documents And Contest 2020 Election)

Cohen is currently serving a three-year home-confinement sentence after he was convicted of tax fraud, bank fraud and lying to congress about payoffs to a pornstar who allegedly had an affair with Trump.

The former Trump lawyer said the Supreme Court’s decision to allow the investigation to proceed was like a “holy grail” for Manhattan prosecutors, according to Reuters.
