A Democratic Congressman whose committee is investigating alleged links between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia has predicted that someone will “end up in jail” once the probe is completed.
Joaquin Castro, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, which is looking into Moscow’s alleged cyber-meddling in the 2016 election, declined to say which individuals may have been guilty of crimes.
However, speaking on CNN, he predicted that “when all is said and done some people will end up in jail”.
Mr Castro, whose seat centres on the Texas city of San Antonio, is among those who have been questioning investigators and intelligence officials as part of the ongoing inquiry. Last month, FBI Director James Comey testified that there was no evidence to support Mr Trump’s claim that Barack Obama had wiretapped him.
Of the investigation into alleged links between Mr Trump and Russia, he said: “The FBI, as part of our counterintelligence effort, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 president election.”
He added: “That includes investigating the nature of any links between associates of the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and the Russian effort. I cannot say more about what we are doing and whose conduct we are examining.”
