There are even more arrests coming after the predawn raid at the Florida home of President Donald Trump's ally Roger Stone, and they will be the "most profound," former CIA Director John Brennan said Friday.
"There was an extensive effort to try to influence the outcome of the election that involved the Russians, that involved U.S. persons, and that may have gone to the very top of the Trump campaign," Brennan told MSNBC's "Morning Joe," adding that he is not surprised about Stone's arrest. "I think the shoes that are yet to drop are going to be the ones that are going to be the most profound and that will hit the people at the top of the organization."
But he refused speculation about who else could face legal charges through special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian collusion, including Trump himself.
"It may not be, it may not be," Brennan said, adding that "clearly" members of Trump's family have been interviewed by the FBI.
He also said claims made in the indictment that persons in the Trump campaign sought out information from WikiLeaks through Stone "absolutely" ring true.
"In the summer of 2016, we were watching what was happening in terms of what was being released by Wikileaks and how the Russian hand was behind this, so the intermediary was something looked at very closely by the FBI and others," said Brennan. "This indictment is not surprising in any respect."
The White House, through Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, said the Stone indictment has nothing to do with Trump, and Brennan said that is a typical response.
