"Money laundering, just like...Al Capone."

We had dinner last night with people we’ve known for almost 20 years. He is a newly-retired counterintelligence expert and a former Republican. He said since Obama, he’s voted for the Democratic candidate every election. I asked him, in general, what he thought the result of the investigations would be. He said that counterintelligence investigations take years and years, and he thinks Trump, three of his children, and some close associates will end up in jail. Not due to obstruction of justice or “collusion,” but money laundering or tax evasion, “just like they finally got Al Capone.” He said it would give him and many in the intelligence community great satisfaction to see Donald Trump behind bars.

I’m hopeful it’s the case.

1. I have no doubt your friend is right.

Look at what happened to Manafort? Twitler and his spawn are just as greedy as Manafort but me where near as smart.

2. That's encouraging news.

I hope your friend is right. I always thought that is what they would get him on and never had much faith in the collusion/conspiracy angle, even though I think he is as guilty as sin.
