  • Books are offering odds against Trump Jr facing Federal Criminal Complaints by 2020

Just by being the son of the President of the United States, Donald Trump Jr would probably be classified as a person of interest.

But as the list of indicted members of Donald Trump’s inner circle grows closer to the top, speculation mounts that Trump’s family may soon find themselves in the judiciary crosshairs.

Monday, the House judiciary committee issued demands for documents from more than 60 people and entities, including Trump Jr.

Despite this evidence of increased scrutiny of Trump Jr and perhaps acknowledging that the wheels of justice turn slowly, books are offering odds against Trump Jr facing Federal criminal complaints by 2020, the year of the next Presidential election.

Other possible targets of this ramped-up scrutiny include Trump’s former chief of staff John Kelly and former White House counsel Don McGahn.

As he has throughout the ongoing probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Trump Jr has maintained an arrogant facade of defiance. He is in virtual lock step with his father’s position on the investigation, that it is nothing more than a witch hunt.

He chooses to continue to ignore the mounting pile of indictments being filed against numerous members of his father’s inner circle.

That list includes people like Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Michael Cohen and Michael Flynn.

Trump Jr was among those involved in the now infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russians, and he’s been linked by Cohen to payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels, allegedly in violation of campaign finance laws.

Books are also offering odds on three other prominent figures facing charges before January 1st, 2020, a list that features Hillary Clinton, defeated by Trump in the 2016 Presidential election.

Who Will it Be Now?

There’s a growing list of investigations into Kushner’s business dealings.

If Trump must sacrifice someone to save his own skin, it isn’t going to be Ivanka, and it probably wouldn’t be sons Don Jr or Eric.

Our opinion is that Kushner shouldn’t get too cushy.
