Former CIA Director John BrennanJohn Owen BrennanBrennan shreds 'misleading & highly politicized' Barr memo Attorney General Barr puts former intel bosses on notice Iranian president: 'Situation is not suitable for talks' with US MORE suggested in an interview Tuesday that he "wouldn't be surprised" if special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerThe Hill's 12:30 Report: Trump orders more troops to Mideast amid Iran tensions Trump: Democrats just want Mueller to testify for a 'do-over' Graham: Mueller investigation a 'political rectal exam' MORE hands down additional indictments at the end of the week, though he acknowledged he does not have inside knowledge.

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."
