According to people familiar with Robert Muller’s investigative team, immunity deals are planning on being used to coerce Trump associates to turn on him. This comes just a day after former Trump campaign official and Twitter user James B tweeted out another big scoop.
We also included James B, a former Trump campaign official, as a source for our story:
Scoop: Investigators want Manafort to admit that it was Donald Trump who scheduled the meeting with Russian Lawyer. Immunity offered.
Federal investigators exploring whether Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian spies have seized on Trump and his associates’ financial ties to Russia as one of the most fertile avenues for moving their probe forward, according to people familiar with the investigation.
The web of financial ties could offer a more concrete path toward potential prosecution than the broader and murkier questions of collusion in the 2016 campaign, these sources said.
One year after the FBI opened an investigation, the probe is now managed by special counsel Robert Mueller. Sources described an investigation that has widened to focus on possible financial crimes, some unconnected to the 2016 elections, alongside the ongoing scrutiny of possible illegal coordination with Russian spy agencies and alleged attempts by President Donald Trump and others to obstruct the FBI investigation.
The next excerpt confirms our story:
Even investigative leads that have nothing to do with Russia but involve Trump associates are being referred to the special counsel to encourage subjects of the investigation to cooperate, according to two law enforcement sources.
As you can see the Witchhunt into Trump-Russia collusion is starting to pick up steam. They have moved away from election interference into finances of at least Trump’s associates. We still have no word on whether Manafort has accepted any immunity deal but with the recent news of a Grand Jury based out of Washington D.C being formed things are bound to get interesting
