In a conversation with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, House Democrat Joaquin Castro of Texas said that he believed that Trump associates were going to end up in jail.
When asked by Wolf Blitzer if Castro had seen any “hard evidence of collusion yet,” Castro’s answer was right to the point: “I guess I would say this: that my impression is, I wouldn’t be surprised after all of this is said and done that some people end up in jail.”
Wolf pushes for more details, asking how high up the totem pole Castro thought this might go.
“That’s yet to be determined,” Castro replied. He also made it clear that not just one, but multiple people would likely face time in jail. While refusing to go into any greater detail, Castro admitted that he was confident that at least some Trump associates would wind up in jail. “If I was betting, I’d say ‘yes.’ … I think think people will probably be charged, and I think people will probably go to jail.”
