Bernstein: Trump Officials Facing ‘20 to 40 to 50 Years for Whatever These Crimes Are’
‘Mueller wants to send a signal to other perspective defendants’

BERNSTEIN: “There’s one other aspect of this and that is that it’s very possible, and it’s been suggested to me by some of lawyers involved, that Mueller wants to send a signal to other perspective [sic] defendants. If this person who has been indicted, or persons, are facing 20 to 40 to 50 years for whatever these crimes are — related to collusion or not — there may be others who are subject to similar charges who have further knowledge about dealings with Russia. And so it may be aimed at these perspective [sic] indictees as well, not simply this person or persons who they want to flip. So there are a lot of intentions that the special council is trying to convey here I suspect.”
