CNN analyst and former CIA official Philip Mudd on Tuesday’s “New Day” reacted to FBI special counsel Robert Mueller recommending no prison time for former national security adviser Michael Flynn after he provided prosecutors with “substantial assistance” in the Russia investigation.
Mudd predicted on a “size 16 shoe” is about to “drop” and that Mueller’s team is “centering in on the core of the investigation.”
“I am putting pieces together that aren’t evident, but look pretty clear to me,” Mudd stated.
He added, “[L]ook at the number of times that this individual, General Flynn, met with the special counsel. Look at another thing: There’s specific reference not investigating lies or money trails, which is what got Paul [Manafort]. … If you put the quantity of information together, the fact that there’s specific reference to Russia, three ongoing investigations mentioned in that document. I’m going to tell you one thing I take away. There’s about a size 16 shoe going to drop here, and that shoe is not going to be related to lying, or to just financial irregularities, which we’ve seen in the past. I think they’re centering in on the core of the investigation, which is what Flynn and others are saying about cooperation with Russia. I think it’s going to happen.”
