MSNBC’s legal expert Neal Katyal made a bold prediction this week: Former President Donald Trump is going to be indicted.
And it is going to happen soon.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show,” Katyal predicted Trump will be indicted by the winter of 2023… during the Republican presidential primary.

“The Justice Department on Friday filed a motion to say, we want to appeal this whole question of a special master, because Jonathan, you don’t get a special master if you’re a normal person ever,” Katyal told host Jonathan Capehart. “Judge Cannon said the reason why he gets one is because he’s the former president.”
“That is not exactly powerful legal reasoning,” he said. “So the department said to the court of appeals, ‘Please hear our case right now. It’s true that we can do a lot of the criminal investigation on the hundred most sensitive documents, but there are thousands of other pages that we would like to look at. You can’t shackle us.'”
“I think the department is basically saying, ‘Look, we’ve had it with Judge Cannon. She is erratic, and she is unprincipled. Her orders are obviously wrong.’”
“I suspect the culmination … is that Donald Trump will be indicted by the Justice Department,” Katyal predicted.
“Care to tell us when you think that might be?” Capehart pressed.
Katyal said the indictment is looming — and will come in the run-up of the 2024 election cycle.

“It depends a little bit on how fast this appeal can take place. I think it can take place pretty quickly,” he predicted. “And, by the end of December, I think we could get a decision which will tee up another question about when to indict in the winter of 2023.”
