Avenatti: Trump Jr. will be indicted before the end of year

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing adult-film star Stormy Daniels, predicted Thursday that President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., will be indicted on federal charges before his 41st birthday at the end of the year.

“Donald Trump Jr. will be indicted before his birthday on 12-31-18,” Avenatti said on Twitter.

“If you doubt my prediction, please check my record over the last 7 months,” the lawyer continued, adding the hashtag “#Winning.”

Avenatti made a similar crack at Trump Jr. on Tuesday, also saying then that he will soon “be indicted” on federal charges.

The president’s son has been implicated in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into ties between his father’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.

{mosads}However, Trump Jr. said in an interview last month that he is not worried about potentially being incriminated in Mueller’s investigation, though he has acknowledged the ongoing probe has been “very rough” for him personally.

“I’m not [worried] because I know what I did and I’m not worried about it,” Trump Jr. told ABC News at the time.

“That doesn’t mean they won’t try to do something,” he added.
