Roger Stone’s Indictment Could Be Bad News For Donald Trump Jr. (HBO)

Roger Stone’s arrest last week for lying to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering didn’t just implicate the longtime political strategist and Donald Trump adviser. It suggests Special Counsel Robert Mueller may be getting closer to the president’s inner circle, as he investigates the possibility that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence the 2016 election.

Tucked into page four of the indictment was an intriguing assertion that “a senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact Stone” to find out more about what emails WikiLeaks was planning to release next. The unnamed campaign official was directed by *someone* — and that someone could be the president himself.

But the next most likely member of Trump’s inner circle to become the focus of the Special Counsel’s investigation may be Donald Trump Jr., who, as a top adviser to the campaign, was involved in a number of meetings and projects that have come under scrutiny as part of the Mueller probe and multiple congressional investigations.

Congressional investigators are already sounding the alarm that they believe he wasn’t entirely honest with them while testifying under oath on the Hill — and if he knowingly lied to lawmakers, that would constitute a felony. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat and member of the Judiciary Committee, told reporters that he wanted a number of individuals to return to Capitol Hill for another round of testimony, to clarify inconsistencies, including Trump Jr.
