Laurel Brandstetter Publishes Op-Ed on Russia Investigation Indictments in Patriot-NewsOn November 14, 2017 by Schnader
Laurel Brandstetter authored an opinion piece published by PennLive/The Patriot-News, “Here’s One Thing We Know For Sure About Trump/Russia Probe – Robert Mueller Is Playing For Keeps“. The op-ed shares behind the scenes strategies that Mueller’s indictments seem to point to.
Brandstetter writes: “The overall investigation has very few limits. Mueller is willing to seek indictments outside the scope of the original investigation once probable cause of criminal activity is identified. He is looking back through a timeframe spanning more than ten years. And he is willing to pursue rarely used criminal statutes to secure cooperation and/or convictions. Look for a far ranging and lengthy investigation.”
