(Newsweek) Former CIA Director John Brennan believes the indictments of many individuals “familiar to the average American” are just around the corner, following the Friday arrest of Roger Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump.
The FBI arrested Stone on charges including obstruction of justice and witness tampering, in connection to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Calling the Trump ally’s arrest “unsurprising,” Brennan said more indictments were likely to follow. “I expect in the next 60 days you’re going to have a fair number,” Brennan told MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday.

“I think people are waiting for the report that is coming out from Robert Mueller. What I look for most are the indictments. It’s so rich in detail. To me all of these indictments will be basically the compendium of Robert Mueller’s, the special counsel’s investigation. I expect there to be a significant number, and a significant number of names that will be quite familiar to the average American.”
