Brennan said on MSNBC's "The Last Word" that he believes Mueller wants to hand over the threads of his investigation to prosecutors in the Southern District of New York and elsewhere.

"I wouldn't be surprised if, for example, this week on Friday, not knowing anything about it, but Friday is the day the grand jury indictments come down," Brennan said.

"I don't think Robert Mueller will want to have that dramatic flair of the Ides of March when he is going to be delivering what I think are going to be are his indictments, the final indictments, as well the report he gives to the attorney general," Brennan said.

He added that if Mueller indicts any members of the president's family, it would likely be his final act as special counsel.

Mueller has implicated six former Trump associates and dozens of Russians in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

None of the charges have alleged conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Moscow, and the president has regularly decried Mueller's probe as a "witch hunt."
