In an exclusive interview with The Political Insider, former adviser to President Trump and legendary Republican operative Roger Stone said he believes Donald Trump Jr. “could be targeted” for indictment. Stone has made similar comments in the past, though the new reason is very different.
Recent reports have suggested that the President’s son has expressed concerns over the matter. Earlier this month, Politico reported that Trump Jr. “has told friends in recent weeks that he believes he could be indicted.”
Stone told The Political Insider in a previous interview that Robert Mueller could indict Trump Jr., stating that “the special counsel is going to charge Donald Trump Jr. with lying to the FBI” over the infamous Trump Tower meeting.
He would add that any indictment, as with many others who have been charged by Mueller, would have little to do with Russia or the collusion witch hunt: “Notice they’re not charging him for having an illegal meeting with a Russian at Trump Tower because there’s nothing illegal about that meeting,” Stone pointed out.
The other possibility for indictment has nothing to do with Russia, Trump Tower, Mueller’s probe into collusion, or anything else.

Still nothing on Russian collusion
Stone, who himself has been mentioned as a possible target of the Mueller investigation, notes that neither of these aforementioned “areas of vulnerability” involve Russian collusion or election meddling by Vladimir Putin and/or President Trump.
“I thought this was about Russian collusion,” he deadpanned. “Suddenly it seems to be about perjury traps.”
“No one who has pled, has pled to anything remotely connected to Russian collusion … these have all been process crimes.”
