William Barr said in his abstract that there have been no extra indictments coming from the Mueller probe. The difficulty for him got here shortly as Greg Craig was indicted simply final week for working as an unregistered overseas agent in relation to the Paul Manafort case. This was uncovered by Particular Counsel Robert Mueller who then handed the case off to federal prosecutors. Extra proof appears to recommend that Barr fully lied in his abstract, as a result of extra indictments are in truth on the best way.
Mueller additionally uncovered a political operative named Sam Patten throughout the Manafort investigation. He helped a overseas oligarch funnel cash into the Donald Trump inauguration committee. Mueller has already handed off this case as nicely. Patten minimize a deal and was sentenced final week.
Patten solely received probation despite the fact that he was responsible of crimes value years in jail. The query right here is who did he promote out to save lots of himself? CNN mentioned “Some particulars about how Patten helped Mueller’s crew stay below seal.” The one cause for it to stay sealed is that if it concerned ongoing legal circumstances. So, there’s extra to come back.
Sam Patten did work with confirmed Russian spy Konstantin Kilimnik who was indicted by Mueller. Kilimnik just isn’t prone to be arrested, but it surely’s doable there are different American operatives that have been additionally working with them. Patten could have additionally had information of different overseas donations to the Trump inaugural fund which is already below investigation by the SDNY. No matter what Barr needs us to imagine, it’s clear there are probably many extra indictments on the best way.
