Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, on Friday said people should expect a “a wild couple of months” ahead in the Russia investigation.

While hosting a dinner for more than a 100 people at his house on Friday night, the Virginia Democrat joked before the crowd: “If you get me one more glass of wine, I’ll tell you stuff only Bob Mueller and I know.”


Mueller is the special counsel investigating the 2016 presidential election and Russia's involvement. He has issued several indictments and received guilty pleas from some former Trump campaign officials as well as former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“If you think you’ve seen wild stuff so far, buckle up. It’s going to be a wild couple of months,” Warner continued, according to Politico

The dinner was reportedly part of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s annual Majority Trust retreat.

Warner’s remarks arrived shortly after attorneys for former Trump campaign chairman Paul ManafortPaul John ManafortDOJ investigating one-time Trump campaign adviser over alleged ties to Qatar: report Foreign lobbyists donated over M during 2020 election: report Former Mueller prosecutor representing Donoghue in congressional probes: report MORE asked a judge to bar any mention of President TrumpDonald TrumpTexas announces election audit in four counties after Trump demand Schumer sets Monday showdown on debt ceiling-government funding bill Pennsylvania AG sues to block GOP subpoenas in election probe MORE from Manafort's upcoming trial, new court filings revealed.
