Politicians and journalists count the hours separating them from a possible announcement on Monday of one or more indictments in the investigation of Russian interference in the United States. However, there is always the possibility that nothing will happen, as the Special Prosecutor’s Office has never confirmed what CNN announced on Friday night. Donald Trump, after being silent on the subject for 24 hours, caught up on Sunday.
Four tweets to denounce a witch hunt and invite the media to rather turn their attention to the real collision with Russia: that of Hillary Clinton.
The Republicans have indeed emerged an old case of uranium sold to the Russians when she was Secretary of State. White House lawyer Ty Cobb made it clear that the tweets had nothing to do with the investigation of the special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, with whom, he added, the president cooperates fully.
The role of Manafort
Sunday political broadcasts have been dominated by indictments. Adam Schiff elected California Democrat, and rising star of the party mentioned on ABC as a possible defendant, Paul Manafort, who had directed the Trump campaign in his early days and had business ties with Russia.
“And what information did Mr. Manafort have to offer to the Russians?” Asked the MP. Well, what will the president do about sanctions! This would be the most important information that the Kremlin would like to have.”
The announcement of charges, if it occurs, may eclipse what could be a success for Donald Trump: the adoption of a tax cut by the House to vote Wednesday.
