I have a feeling that something big will come out this week

There are 17 sealed indictments pending at the same courthouse as the Manafort indictments. It was posted here last week. The 17 indictments run between Manafort and Papadopoulos.

I think that Mueller is waiting for the President to return from his Asian trip, before he drops the hammer.

I suspect that there will be more Roy Moore revelations before the end of the week. Remember, these accusations were while Roy was an ADA and 32 years old. You think that maybe, regardless of age, he may have abused his power to put other young women in similar situations?

The Stock Market went down the last two sessions. Almost every economist believes that the market is overbought and is going to face, at the very least, a correction. I feel one coming.

I don't know. I just feel that this coming week has something big in store, but I just can't put my finger on it.

Now, remember, a person can have more than 1 indictment, so 17 could be any number of people. One, Two, Three or up to 17. Most likely 2 to 4 people, 17 indictments, if the linked info is correct.

Are you saying the indictments only pertain to Manafort and Papadopoulos?
Or will there be others involved in those 17 indictments?

has already pled guilty and is now a cooperating witness. I don't think there will be more indictments for him.

Manafort, maybe. Mueller has to be careful, he does not want to arrest on any charges that trump can pardon. So I suspect all of these will be for state financial crimes.

And Mueller is going to only or mostly press charges on the state level so Trump cannot start pardoning all of these guys?

I wish some action would soon be taken against Kushner.

As you can see, there are only a handful of indictments of "Joe Smiths" leading to the sealed ones.

Indictments in a single court don't come out as often as you think. 4 or 5 a week or so.

But in a big case, a bunch will come out all at once. This is a pretty big case.

He had his turn. I suspect a few low hanging fruits, some we haven't heard of and a big name to finish off.

Remember whoever makes the 1st deal, gets the best deal. After Manafort got arrested I bet Mueller had a line outside of his office door.

Underlings are spilling everything they know. They can't afford the high powered attorneys and the upper crust is leaving them to twist in the wind.

Yes I expect a few low profile names, but I am hoping to hear who the big name will be...

I agree that Mueller is playing 3D as he wraps his arms around these crooks.

Manafort is a Virginia resident. State charges would have to be filed there. Or maybe NY (NYC). Not likely that less-than-federal charges against Manafort would be filed in DC.
