While appearing on CNN with host Wolf Blitzer, Rep. Joaquín Castro (D-TX), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence—which is investigating ties into Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian operatives—dropped a bombshell news tidbit, suggesting “some people” will “end up in jail.”
When asked by Blitzer if he’s seen evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians interfering with the 2016 presidential election, Castro said “I guess I would say this: My impression is, I wouldn’t be surprised after all of this is said and done, that some people end up in jail.”
Their conversation continued, as a visibly stunned Blitzer pressed Castro for more:
Blitzer: “Really? How high?”
Castro: “That is yet to be determined.”
Blitzer then further pressed Castro over his contention that “people, plural” might end up imprisoned after the investigation is over.
Castro: “That’s my impression, yes.”
Blitzer: “But at this point, you’re confident that at least some Trump associates will wind up in jail?”
Castro: “If I were betting, I would say yes.”
Here’s hoping that the Trump administration, from the top down, all get hauled off in a paddy wagon and locked up. I’d love to see the streets lined with Americans chanting “lock them up” to them as the head to the clink to serve time for their treasonous behavior. Trump, Pence, Conway, Spicer, Bannon, Kushner, Sessions…every damn one of them.
